Christmas 2012

WOW! It looks like I’ve been thinking about Christmas cards all year long! You know what? You’re right!

This card was created at the end of July for the Chilliwack Agri-Fair. The category was Christmas.

I can never get enough of foil, especially red foil. Foil and glitter is just decadence on a card and I pull out all the stops when making Christmas cards! I had used the de-bossed (back) side of the snowflakes embossed card stock and glittered every snowflake with Cool Highlight Glitter. It’s tough to see the picture but you may catch a glimpse of it below.

I had wanted to play with an alcohol ink technique on glitter and Elizabeth Craft Designs are just PERFECT for that! I grabbed the gold Christmas Trees. I just placed the peel off on some burnished Cool Highlight Glitter. Then used Ranger Alcohol Inks in conjunction with the palette. (Don’t worry, I have a tutorial planned for this!)
I don’t recall which alcohol inks I had used (with this palette technique it’s so easy to just play) but just by looking at it I’d guess: Red Pepper, Watermelon, Bottle, Meadow and bits of Pesto.

Thanks for joining me today whilst I go through more cards to share with you this week!
