‘Tis The Season….

October 14, 2017

….to be jolly.  Don’t you just love Christmastime.  I know it’s still a way off, but not so very far now.  I’m sure most of you are thinking about Christmas, even if you haven’t started planning for it.  Anyway this is the last of this series of cards using the Merry Patterns stamp set.  Once more this card is created with one of the sketches saved to my Card Sketch Pinterest Board.

I embossed Berry Burst card using the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder and attached it to Whisper White card and then scored and folded Lemon Lime Twist card.  To create my image panel, I first had to stamp the greeting from the Merry Patterns stamp set onto a post-it-note and cut out the letters.  I stamped the same greeting onto the Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added the post it note letters to cover the word “season”.  Once covered I stamped the candle image from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  With the masks still in place, I stamped the fill images for the candles using Powder Pink ink.  I also stamped the fill image for the candle flames using So Saffron ink.  With the masks still in place I stamped the leaf image across the card underneath the candles and over the masks using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I removed the masks and stamped the word “season” using Berry Burst ink.  The image panel is attached to Lemon Lime Twist card.  I have also attached half a Gold Metallic Foil Doily behind the lower right hand edge of the image panel before attaching to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the reindeer image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I also stamped “to be jolly” inside the reindeer image using the same ink.

I think the masking was worth the effort to create the image panel, don’t you?

Bye for now,
