The 12 Days of Christmas Cards-Day Four
Just a short post on this one. It's getting hard to find the time to make a card a day and then blog about it :) This one is for my brother and SIL. Let's just say I think they appreciate the non-traditional and I think this card fits that description.
The stamp is from a Penny Black set (this and every year) and I stamped it first by coloring it with a SU Bordering Blue marker and then stamped over it again with versamark and added the SU! iridescent ice ep. I don't own a "stamp-a-ma-jig" but I think I might just pick one up today while I'm out. I finally found a use for it. It's REALLY hard to line up a rubber stamp exactly in the same place twice. I improvised with a couple cd cases taped down--long story, suffice it to say, it worked.
I decided to add a little dimension with a QK present die and pressed the ribbon part of the die-cut down on a versamark pad and then coated with the iridescent ice ep and heat set it. The paper is a little bit of BG I had laying around from last year's Figgy Pudding line and the background was run through the cb using the swiss dots folder.
I'm probably going to end up spending a fortune on extra postage thanks to all the added dimension but Christmas is only once a year so why not, right?
