Wow can you believe we're only a few days away until the big day!!!
I'm bringing a relaxing make for you today to help you unwind ready for all of the festive celebrations, even though it's going to be alot different this year, hopefully we can still enjoy ourselves with those loved ones that we are able to spend time with, and appreciate all what we have together.
The card I've made uses just two colours Whisper white (which is sadly retiring due to unforseen circumstances, and Basic white will eventually replace it) and Misty moonlight.
Whisper white thick cardstock - 1pc 4 1/8" x 11" score in half at 5 1/2" card base
1pc - approx 4" x 5 3/8" for die cutting largest stitched rectangle
1pc - approx 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" for die cutting 4th largest stitched rectangle
1pc - approx 2 1/2" x 3/4" for sentiment banner
1pc - 3 5/8" x 5" for inside of card layer
2pc - approx 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" for mounting behind largest rectangle die cut for depth
Misty moonlight cardstock - 1pc - 4" x 5 3/8" for front of card 1st layer
1pc - 2 11/16" x 4 1/16" for front of card 3rd layer
1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 1/4" for inside of card layer
Small circle punch for the moon - I've used a retire 3/4" punch
Post it note for masking with
Blending brushes for softly inking the background - these are available to purchase from the 5th January in the new mini Jan - June catalogue
Cut, score and burnish your card base. Cut and die cut all of the other layers for the card.
Glue flat the misty moonlight pieces to the front and inside of the card. Stamp the images onto the inside of card, whisper white piece and glue flat into the inside.
Glue flat to the reverse side of your largest stitched rectangle the 2 pieces that are cut a bit smaller, this will give the card depth but without adding too much thickness to it. Glue this onto the front of the card.
Stamp your sentiment and then punch one end using the Pick a banner punch.
Punch part of the circle out of the sticky end of the post it note (forming a crescent shape) and place onto the smaller stitched rectangle. Now using the blending brush or a sponge softly ink all over this piece, I like to place ink onto the brush and then gently brush some off before brushing onto the rectangle piece, using circular motions.
Remove the sticky moon crescent piece and then gently brush a very faint tint of the ink over the card again, this helps to make the moon look not so bright.
Now using the stamping block very carefully tap the wink of stella pen on the side of it so it gives little splatters over your stamped and inked rectangle. Glue this piece flat now to the smaller piece of misty moonlight cardstock and then glue flat to the front of the card.
Place dimensionals on the reverse of the sentiment and glue into place.
Last of all using the chalk marker pen dot it all over the rabbits tail to give it a fluffy white tail. Card finished.
Hope you enjoyed ths project today, as much as I have had creating it, hope you give it a go and discover what a joy this technique is to use on many of your projects. See you all again in the new year!
