Hello friends, I finally started to work on my cards again, this is my third Christmas card, using Tim Holtz material is my favorite because you have endless possibilities . In the picture below I have sprayed a white heavy stock watercolor paper with Distress Peppermint Mica stain, let it dry and add drops of water to give it that watercolor effect , I have cut a frame using my Sizzix Big Shot with a stitched die, for this particular card I have used only the frame and saved the other stitched piece for another card coming up right after this one, after I have glued on the frame some Distress Mica Flakes, as that was drying, using a the stencil you see I added some stars covering the whole card, I used a metallic acrylic paint from Art Metallique. The stamp from Stampers Anonymous I ended up using it for the next card. Once I start a project I tend to change my mind and go as I see if I like it or not, and also because millions of ideas come popping in my head and I go along with it as I feel it. Bare with me, I will still show step by step.
Here below is the card with the stars stenciled on top of it, I decided to round the corners with a punch and using Distress Vintage Photo Ink I went around the whole card, I love the vintage look it give the card
I took a window frame from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology collection and covered it with White Gesso to cover a bit of the color.
The picture above speaks for itself, I just glued the window to the card after the gesso dried, I also rounded the corner of the green frame.
Above I added a Christmas Wreath and “Christmas Greeting” strip from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Layers cut outs using a bit of glue to make them adhere to the window.
Above is the finished card, I did add two little stars on the window frame always from the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Collection just to give it a little more spark, with a red and white string I made a small bow and glued it on the wreath, basically this was a collage more than everything but I enjoyed it a lot.
I decided this morning to change a bit my card, as more ideas come to mind, I tend to go back and add something more. Here I added a red background and stitched the two cards together, I also added some white acrylic paint to add a bit of snow effect.
Here above you can see pictures of the finished card from different angles so you can see the sparkle of it, I hope you liked it. Thanks for visiting my blog.
