This Month's MMH Add-Ons
Create this card by stamping kit images in Intens-ified Black ink on Dove White cardstock. Color with shades of grey, red and brown Copic markers. Die cut images. Color floor with long strokes of several shades of warm brown Copic markers on an A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) Dove White cardstock panel. Stamp wallpaper with Soft Granite ink and the star shaped stamp from the kit. This stamp nests perfectly and easily into itself by aligning the dots. Stamp image vertically, horizontally, nested together or not. Link them all randomly, like I have, for a fun detail.
Ink Dove White cardstock with Soft Granite to color match wallpaper design, then white detail heat emboss sentiment. Arrange and adhere all die cuts and sentiment in place, some with dimensional adhesive. Adhere panel to folded card base. Lastly, trace tree garland with a fine line of Precision Glue, coat with kit included glitter and tap off excess.
You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.
Achieve this look by ink blending an A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) panel of the kit included teal cardstock with Indigo ink. Stamp several gifts on Dove White cardstock with Intens-ified Black ink and color with Copic markers. A touch of a light grey Copic in the recesses of the bows keeps them with the look of white, but adds depth.
Heat emboss tree with Silver Sparkle embossing powder and Copic color ornaments in same shades as gifts. Silver Sparkle emboss sentiment on Dove White circle. Pop circle with dimensional adhesive onto blended panel and then arrange tree and gifts adhering with Precision Glue and/or dimensional adhesive. Adhere completed panel to folded card base.
