Hello everyone. I know it’s February, but I’m easing you in to seeing more Christmas cards from me every month this year. 😉 So Winnie and Walter is celebrating their 4th birthday this month and I’m jumping in on the fun… a little late to the party, but I’ve finally recovered from two flus to be able to do so. Winter Woodland was the first stamp set I bought from them and I decided to pull it out to make this card.
This card by Kelly was the jumping off inspiration for my card. I also wanted to try watercolouring on color cardstock after seeing this done by Ishani. To start, an A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from Kraft cardstock. The stag was white heat embossed first. The tree ring was clear heat embossed next.
The tree ring was then watercoloured with Zig markers and a watercolor brush. Had to be careful not to use too much water to avoid pilling since this was regular cardstock. A brown color pencil was used to shade around the stag to give it some depth.
The pine branch was stamped repeatedly around the image — first with Versamark and white heat embossed, then with Early Espresso dye ink. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of Early Espresso cardstock. The stitched panel was adhered to a white top folding card base to finish.
Hello there. And Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and step-fathers out there. To celebrate today, I am sharing a funny CAS Father’s Day card. The idea for my card actually came from a Mother’s Day stamp set with “Thanks to you I turned out awesome” sentiment. 😂 Too funny.
The panda image and sentiment were stamped with black Memento ink on a white A2 rectangle.
Bluprint Sketch distress ink and a mini blending tool were used to Ombré colour the dad diecut sentiment and to shade the background.
Glossy Accents was added to dad for a bit of dimension and as a finishing touch. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week.
The deer was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder. The snow bank and falling snow were stamped with Whisper White ink. I used a tissue to wipe the white snow bank off the embossed deer.
For dimension I mounted the panel on white fun foam to a top folding white card base.
