It’s been a weird week for me. I’ve just been feeling a little introverted burying myself in a few books lately. I have also been working on a couple of projects that I’ve thrown out and started from scratch a few times. It’s quite frustrating when things don’t turn out as you would have liked. I persevered and finished a couple but have a few more I need to do. Unfortunately I can’t share them with you just yet but I will when I’m allowed I can’t wait to share them with you!!
Card Measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Emerald Green Foil Card Stock Measures 5 1/4 x 4
White Card stock measures 1 1/8 x 4 1/4
-stamp background stamp (Hero Arts: Leafy Vines) onto green foil card stock using Jet Black Stazon (being a solvent ink, Stazon dries quickly and on glossy surfaces)
-stamp sentiment stamp (Stampendous: Christmas Wishes) onto white card stock using Jet Black Archival (I like the detail that Archival ink gives)
The most difficult part of this card was photographing it to capture the reflection of the card stock but show it’s true colour. IRL (in real life) the card stock is a wonderful jewel tone emerald green. You can easily use this layout with the same background stamp to make all occasion cards by changing the sentiment and card stock colours. I was just drawn to the stamp and this Christmas card popped in my head. You can easily change the green foil for gold or silver and use shimmer paper too! So many possibilities, gotta love it!
