Hello everyone! I’m back with another entry into the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall | Winter Hop! This time I’m playing with super sponsor Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, paired with some fun distress oxide ink blending and that fabulous messy watercolor splatter! You know I love getting inky and making a mess! It’s so fun!
I started my card by stamping out images from Polar Party and Coffee and You from Reverse Confetti and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies from each set to cut the images out and played around with different design ideas. Once I decided what I was doing…(In reality this went from a double-sided ornament to a card.) I cut a white panel down to A2 size and inked it up with spun sugar and picked raspberry distress oxide inks. I spritzed the panel with water and flicked gold watercolor on it as well.
Next, I die cut the Ornament Confetti Cut from gold glitter paper and white cardstock. I adhered the frame layers together and put the gold circle cutout away for another day. I took the white circle and inked the center up with Lawn Fawn peacock ink and splattered it with gold watercolor too. I also cut a little white snowy hill for my critters with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border.
Moving on to assembly…I adhered the inked panel to a white card base and then added the snowy hill to the bottom of that. I adhered the ornament frame and inset circle above the snowy hill and then started adding my images. The ones in the ornament and adhered directly to the card front with liquid glue and the ones on the hill are popped up with foam squares.
Last, I stamped a sentiment from Polar Party and cut it out with a Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strip die and popped it up with foam squares too.
Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to all of the lights, beaks, noses and feet. Then I added black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes and some unicorn Stickles to the stars, hat pompom and ribbon on the package.
I’m so happy with how this card turned out! It’s so fun and happy! It will be perfect to share for the Christmas season!
