AAA Cards - Anything Goes





Since we had the choice of any type of card, I decided to go with a Christmas card - mostly because I just realized how incredibly far behind I am on them!




I recently picked up this Santa's Elves set from MFT and decided to ink it up. I started out by  masking an offset rectangle on the card base with typing paper. I then used a brick stencil and some texture paste to create the pattern. Before it was dry, I added lots of Distress glitter (Rock Candy) to make it sparkle - hard to see in the picture but I love the effect. The images were stamped, Copic coloured, fussy cut and mounted on the card base with foam squares. Finishing touches were the silver embossed greeting on a vellum strip and a piece of Lawn Fawn twine to suspend the stockings.


I will ink up to:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
