'Twas The Night Before Christmas
Hello, happy Thursday! I don't know what the weather is like where you live but here in SE Missouri Mother Nature is being quite rude! It's just too hot to do anything comfortably outside. So, after getting off work early today I opted for air conditioning and crafting. I created this fun and pretty Christmas card for the latest Watercooler Wednesday card challenge. To create my card I started by die cutting an A2 using patterned paper from Fancy Pants MeOlogy Painterly 12x12 paper and a die from Pink & Main. I adhered it directly to my white A2 card base. I then stamped the mantle, wreath, candles, vase, and stockings onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock using the Concord & 9th Merry Mantle stamp set and Memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the images and fussy cut them out. I popped all of the elements up off of the card using 3M foam tape and adhered them onto my card creating a nice mantle scene. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto some Stampin' UP basic black cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger's detail gold embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down into a thin strip and adhered it to the wreath using snail glue and foam tape. To finish my card off I added some 6mm clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Thank you for stopping by today and, if you like my card, be sure to leave a comment.
