Well, let’s just say that I won’t be mass producing this card to send out for the holidays. Another card that requires patience…but I wanted to see the end result and couldn’t turn back once I started.
I had to combine the moose from Moose You stamp set & lights from Simple Snowman stamp set to create my main image. DIFFICULT LEVEL OF 5.
For the lights, they were colored with Real Red & Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers (some left white/clear). I got out the good ol’ Stampin’ Pastels to add a glow around the light bulbs. Finished them off with Crystal Effects. It looks so cool.
Card base size is 4-5/8″ x 8-3/4″ Real Red CS folded in half. Layers of paper on top are 4-1/8″ x 4-3/8″ Chocolate Chip CS & 4″ x 4-1/4″ Dashing DSP. Added a strip of Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and tied in a bow.
Image piece is 2-1/4″ x 2-5/8″ Shimmery White CS; 2-3/8″ x 2-3/4″ Real Red CS; 2-1/2″ x 2-7/8″ Old Olive CS; 2-5/8″ x 3″ Chocolate Chip CS. Used Ticket Punch to bottom right corner of image piece. Added a Fire Rhinestone Brad to this area.
Sentiment piece is 1-3/8″ Circle Punch of Shimmery White CS; Scallop Punched a piece of Old Olive CS and paper-pierced holes. Real Red CS Circle created with Coluzzle Cutting System.
Here are the masking step pics:
Gosh, I don’t even know where to begin on trying to explain how I did this. I had to use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and Window Sheet a lot. Have to do a lot of pre-planning. I had to know exactly where the moose was located and which parts of the light strand would be omitted. All the lights in the pic are yellow because I had to patiently cut out image on post-it note and apply to the whole strand of lights…ughhh!!!
After stamping the moose image, I removed the little post-it note light cut-outs and colored.
Have a great Monday.
