2015 Countdown to Xmas: 25 Days, 25 Cards - Card #17

Card #17 features more stamps from The Stamps of Life Christmas2build set -- the stocking and sentiment.  I paired that with the brush strokes from Mama Elephant.

  • Kraft card base: 4.25"W x 11"H, scored at 5.5" mark
  • Patterned Paper: Pebbles "Harvest" and My Mind's Eye "My Story" collections
  • The Stamps of Life: Christmas2build
  • Mama Elephant: Brush Strokes
  • Washi Tape: Sugar Paper
  • Copic Markers
  • Hero Arts Pale Tomato Stamp
  • Versamark Ink
  • Ranger Embossing Powder in Liquid Platinum
  • Wink of Stella Pen
  • Adhesive Tape Runner and Foam Adhesive
  • Stamp the paint splats on some white card stock.  I used a hybrid ink that doesn't dry fast, so the embossing powder sticks to part of it (on purpose).
  • Stamp the sentiment. Sprinkle embossing powder, heat emboss.
  • Stamp the stocking on some patterned paper.  Cut out the piece and paper piece it back together.
  • Adhere to center of paint splats with foam adhesive.
  • Cut some patterned paper so it's slightly wider than the white paper.
  • Adhere all the layers.
Here is a close-up of the card:

Happy Holidays!
