Are you Ready (for Christmas cards?)

Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, Lisa Foster.

I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Lisa's:
-inlaid die cut technique
-Christmas theme
-one word sentiment

I changed:
-square card
-no green
-floral vs geometric

I used the Ornate Floral coverplate from PinkFresh Studio and cut it from white cardstock. I coloured the petals red by putting them directly onto my Samba ink pad. I spritzed them with Avery Elle Shimmer spray and when they were dry, I inlaid them back into the frame. I trimmed it to a 4 inch square and glued it to a white cardbase. My sentiment is the Big Sugar Script Joy die from Birch Press designs. There are 4 layers of white cardstock, and one of silver glitter cardstock to give it dimension.

And then, of course, I had to make more:

This one also uses the inlaid die cut technique but this time, I used a graphite frame, and I blended ink onto every. single. piece. I put yellow in the centres to create a glow so that I could get the look of stained glass.

When I finished the first two cards, I had one white frame left over, so I did a 2 for 1 technique and used it as a stencil - I blended ink through it onto a panel of white cardstock. 

And then I used the stencil itself over black cardstock for some drama!

Here's my video:

  1. I can see how this card would inspire you! The stained glass one really catches my eye, but they all make for a beautiful quartet!
