I'm a little late getting my card finished for the Less is More Challenge this week. Mostly because I've been really busy...but also because I couldn't decide if I liked my cards. I ended up making 3 different cards and decided to post them all.
This first card was made on a white card base. The background paper is actually a sparkly silver paper.
I stamped the image (which is from PTI jar fillers) on white card stock, then colored around the stars and snowflakes with a Copic marker (BG0000). I then cut the image out using a Spellbinder ornament die. I coated each of the stars with silver glitter, and added white glitter dust to the snowflakes. I also added fine silver glitter to the edges of the ornament. I tied a three loop bow with some silver cord and suspended the ornament from the top of the silver background. The silver background and the ornament are pop dotted for added dimension.
This second card was made by stamping the image (a very old SU) in Memento black. I colored the image with Copics, then added a yellow highlighted background halo around the image. For the white bands on his Santa suit and on his beard, I used a "snow" pen to color, then when it is heat set, it bubbles up for added dimension. The stars he's tossing in the air are all covered with fine silver glitter, as are the stars in the pocket of the Santa suit. I added a touch of glitter to the edges with a Sakura clear star pen. The sentiment was stamped on white card stock, and then cut with a Spellbinder banner die and mounted on the red textured and foil card stock like I used for the background. The Santa image was cut out with a Spellbinder die and pop dotted on the red textured foil card stock.
This third card was made by embossing the white panel with a snowflake embossing folder and highlighting the snowflakes with a little glitter dust. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The star Santa is a very old SU stamp (I believe it's from the same set as the first Santa). I colored him with Copics, then added a yellow halo around the star. There is a touch of Sakura clear star pen around the edges of the white star. I backed the star with some of the red foil card stock. The white embossed background was layered on some gold foil card stock. I'd forgotten I had these Santa stamps...but they were perfect for a "star-studded" card! LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate all of your comments! Until next time...
