Merry Christmas

I submitted a trio of cards using the Truck Tidings Cling Stamp and Die set (Stampendous). Unfortunately, they were not picked up for publication, though the cards themselves were then donated to charity by the publication. So, it's a win of sorts. That means that I can share the cards now, which is a good thing since I've been kept away from my craftroom because of  the renovation of my house and my mouth. Neither project has been much fun.

The truck and the tree from the Truck Tidings set were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, die-cut with their corresponding dies, then edged with a black marker. The ornaments on the tree were touched with a Clear Stardust marker (Sakura) to add a touch of bling to them. The ornaments, headlight, and the side mirror were all coated with several layers of Clear Gelly Glaze pen to add glassy dimension and shine.

Bundled Sage Distress ink (Ranger) was sponged over the fir tree on the Woodland Mini Layering Stencil (Stamper's Anonymous) onto patterned paper from a 6x6 pad in a repeating manner, varying the darkness of the ink. The patterned paper was edged with Bundled Sage and Hickory Smoke Distress inks. Road-patterned washi tape was adhered along the bottom of the patterned paper. The stenciled patterned paper was adhered to a card.

A small scrap of vellum was adhered behind the truck's open window and the tree was adhered slightly behind the truck's bed. The truck was adhered to the card front as shown.

Grey cardstock was die-cut with the Merry Christmas dies (All Occasions) and the sentiment was added to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
