Been keeping myself occupied making some Christmas cards. Wanted to keep the ones i make for OH’s work very simple, settled on a chalkboard style.
Took 3 pieces of black 300gsm card stock and dry brushed some white paint over them. Stamped the sentiment using a white Artiste ink pad. These ink pads are very juicy and great for this style.
Cut out the sentiment and adhered onto kraft card, these cards are 4 x 4 inches. Went round the outside of the black card with a white pen.
Stamped on the rear of the card using my favourite snowflake stamp and added some bling using diamond Stickles.
Used two different sentiments for the insides from the Hot Picks set, the Santa stamp and the happy holidays.
Made envelopes to go with the cards using the WRMK Envelope board, used a thick silk paper which has a little sheen to it. Stamped the star border from the JOFY set of stamps and coloured them in using Staedtler pencils.
There are 30 of these cards, they look great stacked together but there is one thing missing, they need seals for the envelopes. Am making these from sticky back labels and my Sizzix circle die. They are not done yet as i need to rest my hands for a couple of days. Will update post when they are done.
