Hi, Jeni with another Christmas Card. These are my favourite theme of cards to make – I could happily make Christmas cards for 6 months of the year. (Broken up with floral and critter cards for the other 6 months. I have used both this years release and last years release by Concord and 9th. All the products I used are listed and linked to the shop below.
Since I still had the Snowflake Turnabout stamp already in my stamp platform from when I made this Birthday card I stamped a bunch more backgrounds. For this soft green and teal card I used Mint To Be (for the first and last turn), All That Jazz and Aqautini. My least used Catherine Pooler ink colour is Mint To Be, so I made sure to use it on this card. I diecut the Ribbon Banner die twice, and stamped the sentiment “Merry Christmas Wishes” from the Christmas Cheer turnabout stamp set. I snipped one of the banner pieces smaller so it would be hidden behind and adhered them together to make one longer ribbon banner.
I adhered the sentiment banner with foam tape to the center of my background but I felt it needed a bit more colour. I took the Aqautini ink pad direct to paper so the colours would match. I trimmed this into two strips and adhered one to each end of the card base and then adhered the center panel to the card base. For the finishing touch I added some Morning Dew Crystal Drop to the center of each snowflake. The Morning Dew drops are clear so have picked up the colour of the ink below.
