I wanted to create another entry for Mama Elephant’s Top Card Contest. I decided that I wanted to use something from Mama Elephant’s Little Agenda line of stamps. I had ordered the Little Panda Agenda stamps and I was hoping this stamp set would have come in time but I think it’s stuck at the border in customs :(. Hopefully, it’ll come in soon!! I had a hard time deciding what to use and eventually settled on making a Christmas card so I could use 3 of the Little Agenda sets! Is it too early to start making Christmas cards?
I used Hero Arts Intense Black ink and stamped images from Mama Elephant’s Little Reindeer, Snowman, and Santa Agenda stamp sets, as well as, the house from A Christmas Cookie and the presents from Christmas Spirit! I used the following Copic Markers: E37, E33, E31, E49, E47, E43, E41, W7, W9, C1, 0, B000, B00, B02, R29, R35, R17, E95, YR00, YR02, YR04, Y06, Y08, YG06, YG11, V17, and V15. The house and presents were die cut using their coordinating dies while the other images I fussy cut.
I die cut mountains and hills with Mama Elephant Landscape Trio and Snow Capped Mountains Creative Cuts. To create the illusion of snow, I used white glitter paper from Recollections Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper Pad to cut the hills and the snow caps on the mountains.
Using the large stitched rectangle die from Mama Elephant’s Peek A Frames Creative Cuts, I die cut my card front and then used the die to die cut the stitched lines on the sides of the mountain and hills so the stitched line was continuous.
I took my card front and ink blended my background using Distress Oxide inks Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Faded Jeans.
I adhered my mountains to my card front and then proceeded to adhere my hills and images popped up on 3M foam tape. Since I used glitter paper for my hills, I did have to use some liquid adhesive to adhere some of my stamped images to it. If you’re wondering what liquid adhesive I used, it was Lawn Fawn’s Glue Tube.
I die cut Mama Elephant’s Merry Script three times (1x Recollections Gold Glitter card stock, 2x 110lb white card stock) and adhered them stacked together then onto my card front.
To finish up my card, I used my Clear Wink of Stella and added shimmer to the presents and the candy on the house.
Hope you all like my first Christmas card for 2019!
This card was also entered into the 30 Day Colouring Challenge here.
