Hello again! Hope everyone is a-okay. I'm sharing a Christmas card today that I made using the LeAnn's World 101 digi Going Home for my focal image.
I chose traditional Christmas colors using papers from The Paper Studio's Rustic Noel collection, each layer matted with red card on a tan base. Every card layer was cut with a Spellbinders die - how cool is that? I used their 6x6 Matting Basics A&B, Classic Circles Small & Large and Fair Isle Pendant dies. I fussy-cut the Crafters Companion bannered sentiment stamped with Green Oasis Versafine Clair ink on white card colored with Promarker and heat-embossed with clear powder. Lastly, I added some iridescent snowflakes randomly all around.
I colored my scene with Promarkers after lightly sketching out lines for a road and snow banks. I used Frosted Lace Stickles for the snowflakes and ground snow. I used a Sakura red metallic glitter pen for the tree decorations. Honey once had a two-tone brown pick up kinda like this one back when we first met, but as it aged he didn't want to restore it so he sold it to someone who did. It was fun riding in it but not fun for me to drive. At any rate, I had fun bringing it back to life a bit whilst coloring it, if only in my mind. 😊
And a final look. This will probably go to our nephew who loves old trucks, so it was kept flat for mailing. I want to thank you for visiting me today. Best wishes for a great week and until next time, stay well and keep on craftin'! 😄
