Holiday Card Series 2013 – Comfort & Joy

Day 9

The card I made for today was created using a masking and sponging technique and features the Let It Snow and the Mini Holiday Messages stamp sets…

I started with a white base card with the fold to the left. I created a “mask” with printer paper, just cut it to the same size as my card front, cut a square out of the center with my Spellbinders Square die set and used washi tape to tape it down over the card front. I then took a sponge and dabbed Winter Sky ink all over the inside of the square to get that blue, splotchy background. I then took a snowflake image out of the Let it Snow stamp set and stamped it in Eucalyptus ink all over the sponged area (keeping the mask in place). I then took the smaller snowflake image from the On Dasher stamp set and filled in some of the spaces.

I then carefully removed the masking piece from the front and I was left with the blue square of snowflakes. I stamped that little “comfort & joy” sentiment in the bottom right corner in cherry ink and then wrapped a bit of cherry & white baker’s twine around that front panel of the card to tie in a bit more red. The finishing touch was to add a few “twinkle” stickers in the center of some of the larger snowflakes. Very sweet and simple and again, easy to mass produce!  This would also be really cute as a 4.25 x 4.25″ card.
