Merry Christmas Card!

Good morning! Michele here! It is hard to believe that Christmas is just a couple of weeks away! Are you making your Christmas cards? I try to make a pretty good stash of them for the teachers, bus drivers, and some of the gals I work with. I am not really a mass producer of cards. For me, each one is unique and different.  I was playing around with watercolors and produced this pretty background in silver and pink.

I wanted to make sure the background was visible so I die cut a circle popped up with 3D foam. I added some pretty glittery snowflakes, jingle bells, sequins, and a sentiment.

While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled a bit of glitter.  Believe it or not, it actually sticks!purple snowflake2

To create my circle I grabbed 3 Spellbinders dies.  The center one only embosses, it doesn’t cut.

Then I cut 3 layers of snowflakes using various shades of pink paper.  I used glossy accents on each and sprinkled it with a coarse clear glitter. The snowflakes, once dry, were stacked and held together using DODZ Adhesive Dots Small.

When I layered my card, I love having depth and dimension, so I grabbed my trusty 3D Foam Squares.

I lined the backside of the circle with them and placed it directly on my water color paper

I then used E-Z Squares® to adhere the water color paper to pink card stock.E-Z Squares 650

And last but not least I used the Crafty Foam Tape to adhere my watercolor/pink cardstock to the card’s base.
