Happy Sunday! Eugy here and today I’m sharing these two Christmas cards I made using non traditional color palette.
I started making my cards with background preparation. I blended some distress oxides and added splashes of water and white gouache. The backgrounds turned out to be very cute and delicate, and I wanted to add some contrast. So I collected all my dark-colored materials and started creating.
The base of the first card I cut out with with the second largest die from the 5x7 Double Stitched Layering Rectangle Die set from the November release. After that, I added some dimension using Christmas Ornaments Stencil and the Blackboard Paper Glaze Velvet.
Then I cut out a bow from the Autumn Splendor Fabric Cork Paper for an even greater 3D effect. Oh, how beautiful it turned out!
I love diecutted sentimets, here i used one from the An Animal Crackers Christmas Hello stamp set. And as a final touch, I added some sequins from the All about the Galaxy Sequin Mix.
I diecut the base for my second card with an outline die from the Santa's Hot Cocoa Mug Die set and then I diecut the part for the shaker using the Autumn Splendor Fabric Cork Paper. After that I stamped and diecut small images and sentiments from the An Animal Crackers Christmas Hello stamp set.
All I had to do to finish the card was to assemble the shaker and fill it with sequins and tiny diecuts. Easy enough, isn't it?
You can find some of the products I use on the Black Friday sale on the site, which ends on November 29.
Hope you liked this project.
Happy crafting and have a nice day!
Awesome cards! Love the colors for the ink blending. Beautiful ornament design, and the mug is so fun!
