Oh DANG! Creating this card was SO enjoyable. I had a little idea in my head on how I could use the new Whimsy paper pack, and combine it with the Mason Jar rubber stamp, in nontraditional Christmas colors.
Check out how this was created before running over to Whimsy Stamps to see all the new delicious stuff in the release.
Creating this Card:
Using the Whimsy rubber stamp Mason Jar, and a purple stamp pad, I stamped onto one of the beautiful new pieces of paper from Blurry Flurries. Only the inside edges of the jar needed to be colored in order to help accent the “glass” edges. Once that was done I added a little bit of white streaks to give it a slight icicle “glass” effect.
Using more of the Blurry Flurries, I layered the hand cut jar on another panel, and then this layer was placed onto a burgundy piece of card stock to help it stand out.
The pinecones were easy to created when using the Jolly Holly stencil and my airbrush machine, but you could also use a dauber and ink pad to give it the same look. After cutting them out, I popped them up around the jar using foam tape. It still needed just a little more of something, so I die cut some pretty snowflakes from the new Slimline Elegant Snowflakes die set, and adhered them around the pinecones.
A simple chipboard sentiment was added, but wasn’t complete until I added my favorite Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I just might have to keep this card.
