Today it’s still Christmas in July over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, so I’ve got some more festive inspiration for you. This time a set of 4 Christmas Cards that are perfect to use yourself or give as a gift.
I started with an image from this week’s sponsors, Sheepski’s Designs; they kindly sent over some images for the DT to use and I chose Winter Deer.
I sized & printed the images for an A2 card using Silhouette Studio, and then I added added foil to them using my laminator. I chose to make 2x Gold foil & 2x Silver foil. I didn’t get a perfect foiling to be honest, but I actually don’t mind that, it adds a sort of vintage look to the actual image.
I ink blended on the panels after foiling them, choosing to do blue & green; each colour having both a silver and a gold foiled image. Once the ink blending was completely dry, I embossed my sentiment, matching gold or silver EP with the foiling.
Then I used the WOW embossing mixed media brush to put embossing ink on the side of each panel and added some Sparkling Snow EP (also from WOW.)
I popped up each panel onto an A2 kraft card base using foam adhesive and called these done!
