Christmas Series 2016 | Card 5 Under the Mistletoe
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
Only two more sleeps until Christmas Day, which according to my four year old means it will take another hundred years. I remember being that excited about Christmas. It seems so long ago. She's so full of energy. I wish I could be half as excited about pretty much anything as she is about almost everything that doesn't happen today.
It's also my son's birthday today. So while he is out with his grandmother, we're here staying warm and relaxing before the craziness that is the next couple days begins.
To begin today's card, I stamped the bow on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped a mask on a post-it note and fussy cut it out.
I masked off the bow and stamped the mistletoe. Both stamps and the greeting are from a set that I have long since lost the packaging for. But I believe it is a Hero Arts set.
I then removed the mask from the bow and coloured the images using Copic markers. I wanted to keep the card simple, yet with every intention of adding a bunch of glitter and bling, y'know, because it's the holidays and because that's just the kind of person I am.
The glitter and bling didn't happen, the hubby saw it and was super impressed with how clean it was, so in the end I left it as it was. I mounted the panel on a standard A2 sized card base and that was that.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right sidebar so you don't miss out on any future posts and toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think. I love to hear from you!
