Welcome to April’s edition of Get Cracking on Christmas!
How about combining seasons this month and using some spring/pastel colors on a Christmas card?
I started creating the background with the Bokeh Layering Stencil set from Taylored Expressions using pastel colors of Distress Oxide Inks. To add a little “sparkle”, I heat embossed the Star Fall Background stamp with white embossing powder (to make it look like it was fading from both sides I just stamped twice from the center of the card front).
With the background ready, I stamped and die cut a snowman from the Frosty Background Cling & Clear stamp set and coordinating dies along with the “HAPPY” sentiment from the On the Block – Happy stamp and die set. I glued the body directly to the card but the snowman head and happy were attached using foam adhesive for a little bit of dimension. The “holiday” portion of the sentiment is from the On Repeat – Holidays stamp.
I finished the card with a few Bits & Pieces – Snowflakes.
Another one ready for this holiday season! How are your cards coming along so far? If you’re looking for some time and inspiration, be sure to join Jenn on Saturday April 17th at 4p ET on YouTube for this months live!
