Post Christmas card making with Trinity Stamps

Hello everyone!

I’m in a bit of a blur here, with days blending into each other, as I’ve been sick and my Mamma was here visiting until 7am this morning. With energy low, sickness running rampant still and the weather awful, which is such a mojo killer for me, I’ve got a quick card for you today:

I used a pre-embossed card base, which has a snowfall pattern on it, that’s been sitting in my stash for years (no joke)

On a strip of vellum I heat embossed ‘If snowflakes were kisses, I’d send you a blizzard’ in Silver Pearl embossing powder from WOW! Embossing Powder. This sentiment is from Trinity Stamps and will be available for purchase later this year. To make sure you don’t miss is, sign up for the newsletter from the Trinity Stamps site and follow them on Instagram.

To make sure the sentiment shows up a little bit more, I drew thick lines with some minty blue Copic makers on the back of the vellum. White on white is very elegant but it’s also nice to be able to read a sentiment right?

With double sided tape, I adhered the strip to the card and managed to get it slightly off centre. Despite using my craft mat and PostIt tape to hold everything in place. All the best laid plans and all that, huh?

To finish off the card I added a very generous sprinkling of embellishments from the Caribbean Ocean Confetti mix. These I added with Glossy Accents.

With that the card was done! With big, fabulous sentiments like this one, making a card takes very little time. Which is helpful when mojo/time/energy is low or you need to mass produce a big quantity of cards because you are behind on sending….

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this card provided some inspiration for you despite being slightly wonky and off centre. Oh well, not every card is a master piece, lol!

Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
