Newton’s Nook – Black Friday Shopping, Nailed it!

Happy Christmas Season everyone! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today and couldn’t resist making a Black Friday shopping themed card to start the holiday season off.

I started by stamping and heat embossing the Main Street image in white embossing powder, then I added some snowflakes to the sky the same way. This image is also part of the Main Street set. Then I used a blending brush and some white pigment ink to cloud up the edges of my panel a little. I trimmed this panel down just a smidge to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8. Then I die cut a white panel with the land borders die and colored the top edge with a light blue copic marker and popped it up with foam tape. At this point I took some white paint, watered it down and flicked it across the panel for a little extra snow.

Then I stamped and colored the main image from Christmas Haul with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out and adhered her with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape so she was the same level as the snow bank. I also die cut one of the Banner Trio dies and stamped my sentiment. *Note, because this is die is solid and I needed it smaller, I did partial die cutting before stamping my sentiment. I just die cut half, shifted the die down a little until the stitches matched up and die cut the other part. Then stamped my sentiment.*

I did take the same light blue marker and color the edge of the sentiment banner for a little accent and then popped it up with foam tape too. I added the panel to a red piece of cardstock measuring 4.25×5.5 and used liquid glue to adhere that to a white card base. Now for those fun finishing touches!

For those I added glossy accents to parts of the wreath and packages the lady is carrying and also Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to other packages and her belt and shoes. Last, I added some clear gems in various sizes throughout the whole design.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
