In my last Canvas Corp Brands order, I added some of these skinny cards to my cart and I have been loving the different size of card to play with! I feel like these long and skinny cards really lend themselves well to creating a scene because I feel like I have much more room to work with.
I started this card by stamping the trees from a Brutus Monroe stamp set. Now, in the stamp set, this image is actually a stick with some little berries on it, but if you stamp them upright, you get the perfect tree trunk and branches!
I stamped and embossed the trees in red, and then I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in white. This sentiment is also a Brutus Monroe stamp set.
With all my embossing done, I moved on to adding some watercolor to the trees to make them look like evergreens. I mixed some green Distress Ink with water and then quickly and loosely painted the trees over the embossed image.
After my trees were dry, I took my ink blending tool and added some blue and light purple around the top of the scene to give it a wintry sky feel.
Lastly, I ripped a piece of vellum, heat embossed some white on the top edge, and adhered it to the bottom of the card to make it look like a snowbank.
The last bit of embellishing I did was to add a red raffia bow and a few white sequins. That finished this card!
I took a process video if you care to see more!
Thanks for stopping by! I have listed a few of the supplies below that I used on this card.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
