#sarasherlock Christmas Cards joyeux noel stamp set Much Love Sara Sara Sherlock Slim Line Our Town Cover Plate Die

Hello!  It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara. Welcome to another day of our 25 Days of Christmas Inspiration! Today, I have a super easy slimline card to share.  You know I love the Picket Fence Studios Blending Circle Stencils for creating easy ink blended backgrounds.  The 2-1/2" stencil created the perfect moon to highlight Santa in this fun Christmas scene card.  


I began by cutting a piece of white card stock to create my card front.  I taped the circle mask portion of the stencil to the paper, with the tape on the back side of the mask.  Then, I blended some blue and black inks onto the background, using my Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I left the bottom edge of the card front without ink.  Once the sky was to the color I wanted, I blended a lighter yellow-tan color right around the edge of the mask.  I then removed the mask, and added the same ink to the inside edges of the white circle.  Once the inking was completed, I laid the mask back over the moon, and spritzed a little water over the top of the sky.  



I pulled out my die machine, and die cut the Slim Line Our Town Cover Plate Dies from black card stock.  I put the card front into my MISTI, and laid the town die cut over it, so that I could place my sentiment stamp.  I positioned the stamp from the Joyeux Noel set, and then heavily powdered the card front to make sure that the embossing powder wouldn't stick to the previous ink.  I then stamped the sentiment and embossed it in white.  Once the embossing cooled, I used a soft cloth to buff the extra powder off the panel.  

Finally, I adhered the village and Santa's sleigh die cuts in place, trimmed the edges, and then added the card front to a white card base, using foam tape.   

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  The whole card took very little time to complete, and I love this little scene. Find more cards using products from the recent November Release over on my blog.  Have a fantastic Tuesday!
