Hey cardmaking friends, welcome back. It's Sandi MacIver here. Today I have a GRUNGE CHRISTMAS card for you created with Picket Fence Studios A Christmas Flower Stamp Set.
I decided to stencil a bit of a messy "grungy" background just to change it up a bit.
Grunge is a technique I do enjoy, but I have never tried it on a Christmas Card before and I kind of like it.
How to create the Grunge Christmas Card
Start by using the Misti to stamp the A Christmas Flower onto Hammermill cardstock using Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink (copic friendly).
Next Use copic Markers to color the image in. Pinks: RV55, RV17, RV17, Yellow: Y17, Greens: G21, G24, G28 Finally, die cut the image out with the coordinating die.
Creating the Grunge Background:
This is a soft Grunge with really only two layers.
Start with a black card base 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 and secure it to a protected work surface.
Spray the Flower Stencil with Pixie Spray and lay it over the cardstock.
Use a palette knife to add Snowdrop White paper Glaze through the stencil randomly - don't fill it in completely.
Remove the stencil and wash immediately.
While you are waiting for the paper glaze to dry, cut the Snowflake Alice twice from white card stock and once from Simon Glitter White.
Stack the snowflakes with the glitter one on top and glue it to the top of the card front.
Attach the card front to a top folding A2 White card base.
Mix some Gold Gansai Tambi ink and splatter the front of the card.
Stamp and cut out the sentiment from the Fancy Christmas Sentiments and coordinating die set.
Use foam squares to attach the flower and sentiment to the card front.
Embellish with 1950's Sequins.
