Merry Christmas


Hello everyone! I seem to be on a roll with my Christmas cards of late. Todays card was inspired by a Spellbinders die set that I just received...I couldn't wait to use it! I have been waiting for the Scalloped Border One die which was on back order and it finally came!
I stamped my sentiment using Rich Cocoa onto X-Press It blending paper and I coloured some of the elements using KAISERfusion markers. As they are an alcohol based marker, you need to use a compatible ink and paper to get the best results. To enable the sentiment to blend in with the papers, I used a blending tool and some distress ink to soften the stark white. I am a beginner with alcohol markers and I tried to add some tones in the leaves to add some definition.





Supplies:

Paper: Kaisercraft St Nicholas Paper pad PP913, X-Press It Blending paper, SU! Cherry Cobbler, American Crafts Christmas Glitter Pad.

Stamp: Kaisercraft Turtle Dove C;ear Stamp CS844


Ink: Memeonto Rich Cocoa, Distress Ink Antique Linen

KAISERfusion Markers: G14 Asparagus, G16 Forest, R05 Poppy, P06 Champagne

Other: Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One, Foliage, Layered Poinsettia and Classic Ovals Small, Memory Box Tiffany Frame, Kaisercraft Pearls Red SB795, Gold Ribbon, Hug Snug Seam Binding Chalky White, Gold Bead.

Thanks for stopping by!
