The plan was to have 12 cards in my 2015 Holiday Card Series (like the 12 Days of Christmas!) but unfortunately I fell short of my goal. I did, however, save my favorite card for last…
I am submitting this card to the current Lawnscaping Challenge:
I stamped all of the images onto Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored them in with COPIC Sketch markers. I tried my hand at the “dot technique” on the sheep to try to mimic the look of a real sheep’s coat. I also used various gel pens to add detail to some of the presents and colored over the Christmas lights with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella pen.
I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on two areas of the card — to create a soft blended sky for the main scene and also inked it over the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe stencil for the frame piece.
In honor of Diecember, I did a TON of die cutting on this card. I used the inlaid die technique for the focal panel and stacked three frames together for added dimension. I also used the Lawn Fawn Forest Border and Stitched Hillside Border dies and coated the tops of the die cut pieces with Star Dust Stickles.
Thanks for stopping by!!
