I pulled out one of the new sale-a-bration stamps sets coming January 2020 for today’s card. Isn’t this the cutest set you have ever seen. You can earn it for free starting January 3rd by placing a $50 order. I needed to make a Christmas card for Eric and his breakfast pals to give to their favorite waitress.
I stamped the group of meerkats and then created a mask of them so I could add a few more of the individual meerkats to the back of the group. I then stamped the little Santa hat from the Merry Moose stamp set on 3 of the meerkats. I colored the meerkats with light and dark crumb cake Stampin blends and the hats with a light cherry cobbler Stampin blend and then used a little of the snowfall accents puff paint on the brim and the pompom on each hat and then heat set it. I stamped a tree from the Merry Moose set in shaded spruce, added a few holiday rhinestones and some of the gold/white tinsel trim and a gold star from the Most Wonderful Time product medley and then added a few snowflake sequins. I used the largest stitched nested labels to cut out the scene.
My card base was made from thick whisper white card stock cut to 5 1/2 and then scored at 4 1/4. I cut a piece of shaded spruce paper at 4 1/8” by 5 3/8 and then centered a piece of let it snow specialty designer series paper cut to 4” by 5 1/4”on top. I popped up my die cut using dimensionals. I then stamped the saying from the Bells are Ringing Stamp set using versamark ink. I then added some white embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. I punched it out with a label die from the Most Wonderful Time die set. I added a little more gold tinsel trim to each end and then added a few dimensional and centered below the meerkats scene.
I finished off the inside with a couple of strips of the let it snow paper to match the front. I stamped merry Christmas from the snowman season stamp set and from all of us from The Gang’s All Meer set.
Your card is so sweet! Happy retirement and crafting.ReplyDelete
