Hi there everyone and a very happy (or should I say merry) Friday to you! Today I’m sharing with you a Christmas card….. I hope I’m not too early 😉
I started by stamping the wreath swag from Merry & Bright twice to create a full wreath using black pigment onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. I then stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set in the centre of the wreath using pigment ink I then clear heat embossed the sentiment so it stands out a little more than the wreath.
I then used inks as watercolours to add colour to the wreath and a blue wash behind it. Once dry I added a few splatters of gold.
I cut this piece slightly smaller than the card base so I could add some interest to the side. I stamped the candy cane stripe border from Holiday Trimmings in red ink onto the right side of the card base. I have to say I just love this stamp and it’s one that I keep going back to again and again!
Before adding the watercoloured piece to the card base I added a strip of gold to tie in the gold splatters I added to the watercolour piece.
So have you made a start on your holiday cards for this year? I do hope this inspired you to start if not.
See you again soon!
Hugs, Lydia x
