2015 Countdown to Xmas: 25 Days, 25 Cards - Card #2

Hi everyone!

I'm here with Day 2 of my 2nd Annual Countdown to Xmas: 25 Days, 25 Cards!

Today's card uses stamps from this month's Simon Says Stamp card kit.  Along with another awesome Jingle Greetings stamp from Mama Elephant.  I also used a bunch of Hero Arts inks to create the background and stamped images.  This card was super easy to make and would be easy to replicate in different colors to make a nice gift set.

  • White Cardstock: 5.5"W x 8.5"H, scored at 4.25" mark
  • Avery Elle Finished Frames Die Cut
  • Simon Says Stamp Gifts of Love Stamp Set
  • Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings Stamps
  • Hero Arts Ombre Ink (Pink)
  • Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Tide Pool, Mint Julep)
  • Hero Arts Pigment Ink (Unicorn White)
  • Versamark Ink
  • Ranger Embossing Powder in Liquid Platinum
  • Wink of Stella
  • White Gel Pen
  • Adhesive Tape Runner
  • Stamp the stockings in the center of a piece of white card stock
  • Stamp the stocking on post-it paper three time.  Cut out the stockings from the post-it paper to create a mask.  Overlay this mask on top of the stockings
  • Using a foam blender tool, gently apply the Tide Pool and Mint Julep ink in a swirly motion over the body of the stockings.  
  • Gently remove the post-it paper.
  • Draw a line across each of the stockings about 0.25" down from the top
  • Using the white pigment ink, stamp snowflakes all over the stockings and the green/blue background
  • Stamp the greeting at the bottom with Versamark ink.  Heat emboss with embossing powder
  • Die cut this piece using the largest Finished Frames die
  • Adhere all layers together.
Here is a close-up of the card:

Happy Holidays!
