Marisa Grosson, from British Columbia Canada, made today’s featured card for day 12 of our Handmade Christmas Card a Day series. For past cards, please click here. For more ideas and inspiration from Marisa, please check out her blog here.
Used stamps from the Vintage Christmas Stamp Collection of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamp. Vintage Santa image was stamped with Onyx Black Versafine on white cardstock and then colored with Lyra Aqua Colors. Used an Opaque Inkssentials white pen for the beard area.
Used an oval Coluzzle to cut the image and edges were sponged with Walnut Stain. Used a Versamark stamp pad on the front of the oval and heat embossed with clear UTEE several times.
Holly leaf border was done by curving the leaf stamp from the Vintage Christmas collection and stamping on white cardstock following an oval shape. The Holly leaf border was colored with Tombow markers and hand cut with scissors on the inside and outer edges following the stamped pattern. This was mounted on top of the main image.
This piece was then mounted on to an oval scallop red cardstock. Background DP from Harvest Floral/Vine – Mustard Moon was hand torn on all edges, distressed with Walnut Stain and then sewed on to the green and red cardstock. Red and Green cardstock was also distressed just on the edges with Walnut Stain. Added ribbon and Happy Holiday metal sentiment.
