Wonderful Time of Year


Hello and Welcome
Have you ever used some low tack tape to create a card front panel?
It is super easy and fun to try with different colours.  
Today, I am using some traditional colours for Christmas.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and got out my low tack tape.  I pressed the tape onto my Lucky Clover Distress Oxide pad, inking up the length of the strip of tape, then lifted it off and pressed it onto my piece of cardstock.  If you don't get a good transfer of ink, just press the tape onto the pad again, match up the lines and repeat.
  • Next, I repeated that process using some Candied Apple DOX ink.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • When it was dry, I placed it into my Misti and stamped the sentiment into the center.
  • I rubbed my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and white heat embossed them to add to the snowy look.
  • I stamped the snowflake along the outer edges and white heat embossed them as well.
  • I popped the panel onto a piece of red cardstock, then onto a white 4 1/4" square note card.
  • Finally, I added 3 red gems for another little pop of colour.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This technique has worked beautifully Karen and the areas where the red and green cross one another work too, that is the bonus of using the oxide inks as they layer so well over one another. A lovely large sentiment in black which stands out perfectly over the top and the pretty white embossed edge and snowflakes look great too. x

Thanks for the reminder of that technique - I haven't done it for years. It's a great way to lay down some red and green ink without them merging into brown. Love the addition of the white heat embossed edges and snowflakes.
