I love the Scandi look so much this year as you can breathe new life into all your old Christmas stamps.
On this card I started with a Kraft card blank and went around the edge with Cosmic Shimmer Guilding Polish in Pearl Lustre.
I picked a plaid patterned paper in red and white that is key to this look and matt layered onto white card then mounted onto my card blank leaving a boarder on either side.
Next on white card I stamped my stag in red and my sentiment in a christmassy green then heat embossed them with clear holographic embossing powder. I stamped my heart in white onto Kraft card then embossed as before.
Using Spellbinders labels 3 dies I cut my stag and Kraft card layer. I cut out my heart and closely around my sentiment. I used a boarder embossing folder on some Kraft card then cut it out also.
After putting together my card I put some gems in the stags antlers and pearls in green and white around the edge. I finished with a wooden embellishment, ribbon and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Kiss on the boarder.
I love putting an insert in my cards and make up a batch before I make my cards.
I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and gets what they want and sees who they want to see. ☃️
If you’re just starting your very own crafty journey, feel free to ask me anything. I have 19 years of craft design and technique to share
I love creating craft projects you can keep forever. I will never stop making cards, but they always end up in somebody’s draw and maybe looked at occasionally.
My projects are normally quite dark as I like to use black or dark blues then highlight the raised areas with mica powders or mattalic polishes.
On this mixed media project I used a light blue chalk paint and decoupage paper for the background.
I have been busy the past week with the children, shopping and everything else so have not had much time.
I wanted to send a thank you card to a friend, a male friend. I struggle with cards for men but luckily this friend love birds. Being elderly he doesn’t get out much so watches the birds from his window.
I check weekly that he is fine and when I made him a sandwich I put this card on top of it, put the sandwich in front of him then left before he opened it. He hates any mushy stuff, that’s why I got the hell out of there!
