Today, I’m sharing a second card featuring the ‘A Charming Christmas collection. However, the name of the set is about where the similarities stop between this card and my first card. Keep reading and check out why.
To start off this card, I colored up the cute ornament die cut pieces. I used a few shades of yellow and followed up with my colorless blender to really get the highlight showing up nice and bright. I heat embossed the little metal part of the ornament with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger. I thought this cute little ornament looked like a light bulb and then the light bulb went off in my head. AHA! I’ll just turn this ornament upside down and, Voila! I have a light bulb. Genius, I know (haha just kidding!).
I grabbed some craft cardstock and used one of the smaller Vintage Stitched Squares from Spellbinders to cut it down. I also cut the loopy frame (I LOVE that thing!) from ‘A Charming Christmas’ from white cardstock. I did some focus ink blending in Wild Honey to make it look like the light bulb was shining and then adhered everything to a navy square card base.
For my sentiment, I used the ‘wishing you brighter days’ stamps from the ‘Rainy Days’ set by Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped with VersaMark ink, then heat set with Ranger’s White embossing powder on black cardstock. I popped the sentiment strips up on foam for dimension.
To finish off the card, I added 3 iridescent sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and filled the cup with glossy accents. I love this effect!
This card is a perfect example of stretching your stamps and dies for all they’re worth. I used a Christmas die set to make a completely non-holiday related card. Awesome, right? What creative ways do you like to use your stamps and dies? Share below! I love hearing from you.
Hugs and love,
