I'm popping in to post Wednesday's card early this week so I can enter it into last week's My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge :)
Here's my card:
and here's the sketch:
I started off by die cutting the rectangle out of a piece of Neenah cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I lightly traced the window on another piece of Neenah cardstock cut to the same size. I stamped my elves inside the window and then stamped and cut out masks for them. I masked the elves off and did my ink blending with Scattered Straw and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and then pulled the masks off and got to coloring! I stamped the stocking and the present again on another piece of cardstock and colored them and my elves with Copic markers. After all of the coloring was done I adhered my diecut frame piece on top of my colored and inked piece and stamped the sentiment. I adhered the stocking and present with foam tape and added some wink of stella shimmer to the bells on the hats and some glossy accents to the holly berries on the stocking. I glued the whole thing down on a white card base and it was done!
I'll be back on Friday with a card for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop! Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
