Newton’s Nook – Main Street Christmas Card

Hello everyone! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog with some fun holiday card inspiration to share with you!

I pulled out one of my very favorite holiday stamp sets and did some therapeutic coloring the other day. This Main Street Christmas set is super cute and so fun to color in a million different combinations! So that’s what I did. I stamped and colored it with my copics, then cut it out with the coordinating dies.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed Santa in black and some snowflakes in gold glitter and die cut those too.

I inked up a panel with distress oxide inks in abandoned coral, dried marigold and tattered rose. Next, I taped my Music stencil to it and blended white pigment ink through the stencil. It’s subtle but I knew which sentiment I wanted to use and it seemed perfect. Then I flicked some light gold watercolor all over the panel and let it dry.

Once that was dry, I adhered it to a white card base and popped my Main Street image up with foam strips. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment below the street and adhered the snowflakes down with liquid glue. Finally I popped Santa up with some foam squares so he didn’t get lost at all.

Then I finished the whole card off with glossy accents on EVERY. SINGLE. WINDOW. Can anyone say hand cramps??? Oh my word, yes! But sooooooooo worth it!!!
