Here comes a new Christmas Card I have made with two of the lovely Nativity stamps I recived from Magnolia. Here you can see Edwin as Wiseman masked together with Paradise Palm both from the Nativity Collection 2012. I have also used the lovely text Merry Christmas from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012.
I have tried the "No Line" colouring again, where I have stamped the image on a regular paper three times before I stamp it on the water colour paper. Later I have coloured his eyes, eyebrows and the three spots on his cheeks with a black pen. The freckles are made with Distress Marker-Tea Dye.
My colouring with Distress Ink-Reinkers:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, the cheeks are coloured with a mix of Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany.
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain.
Clothes : Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, Frayed Burlap and Black Soot
Crown: Scattered Straw, Aged Mahogany, Black Soot.
Paradise Palm: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters, Black Soot.
I have used a number of DooHickeys on my card too, here are So Wrapped Lovely and Poinsettia. The tag is called Tilda Tag.
The whole card is shaped with a GoKreate die, called Large Frame Frilly #7 (Product no: 160027).
After some questions about it, I will now show you how I cut out the shaped card.
I use a Kraft card stock measuring 15x30 cm, a panel 15x15 cm, and the pattern paper 15x15 cm.
I start with the Kraft Card Stock:
Which I fold in the middle, like this:
Then I find the largest of the Go Kreate dies (14x14 cm) and place it on the cutting machine like this:
I then take the Kraft Card Stock and lay it on the die, but leave some open on the top:
Then I run the die with the paper in through the cutting machine (I have a transparent plate over and one under the die).
And here is what the card base looks like:
I don't want the card to be flat on the top, so therefore I cut out a panel and a pattern paper to place on the front. I need a panel under the pattern paper so that I can sew them together, and then glue them to the card base.
Here are the three parts cut out.
And you can see how I place the panel and the pattern paper on to the base.
I only glue them to the base after they are sewed together and the front is fully decorated.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and have a lovely Sunday evening!
Take care ♥
