This is the last Christmas edition of Card Making Monday for this year, I hope you enjoy it! I tried out my new Christmas stamp today! Here is the result:
I am very happy with how it turned out, although, I still need a lot more practice using my copic markers- I've gotta get the technique right, it's so tricky. That's definitely a goal I have for next year. Anyway, how sparkly awesome is this card! It took me a while to get it right- halfway through I changed papers and design. Initially I wanted to heat emboss my snowflake paper (the background paper behind the stamped image) with blue and silver glitter powder. I thought it was a brilliant idea, however, it didn't go do plan at all. I really need a better quality watermark ink pad, I have a craaaappy one, yo. I know what I'm buying in the boxing day sales. Yay! OK... I'm gettin' off track, as usual...
For this card I even got to use some paper that I've had in my stash for years but haven't found a use for yet, so I'm pretty excited about that! For this card I used pre-cut white cardstock, some patterned paper and some glitter paper which I got from Spotlight.
I stamped my image on some white cardstock, cut it out and stuck it down on some blue polka dot paper which I embossed with snowflakes using my beloved cuttlebug. I used Stickles clear glitter glue to decorate the border of the stamp and the snowflakes.
I used a snowflake punch to cut out some snow flakes from some gorgeous pearlescent paper, stuck them down in random spots and decorated with some pearls. Pretty!
And of course I couldn't resist adding some sparkly ribbon!
