‘Ello mates! (That’s me channeling my inner Aussie)
Today’s post is a collaboration with the lovely Michelle Lupton, who’s doing a fun Christmas card making collaboration with lots of crafty friends. The idea is to CASE/Copy And Selectively Edit a card from each other and do it in a Christmas theme.
I had a hard time picking one because Michelle makes AH-mazing cards! Check out her Instagram to see for yourself. After going back and forth and then back and forth again, I finally settled on this gorgeous card.
I started out with a stencil from MFT Stamps called Peace, Love and Joy, and Gold Deco Foil transfer sheets. To attach the foil to the pattern, I used Transfer Gel Duo with a spatula. Of course I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray first. Whilst waiting for that to set, I started working on a second card.
On top of this I used a light watercolour wash to add some colour, like the original card. These water colours from Gansai Tambi are really rich and pigmented so you only need a tiny bit.
When that was dry, I added it to a card base. To then achieve the look of the inspiration card, I adhered two panels cut out of white card stock, on each side of it. A little christmas sentiment stamped on a slim banner was the last touch to this one.
The first card was finished off by adding the foil to the pattern and the transfer gel, then run through the diecutting machine. It works so great, and you don’t need a laminator with the Transfer Gel Duo either.
This card also got a slim banner with a christmas sentiment added to it, and was adhered to a card base. The sentiment set I used is from MFT Stamps and is unfortunately not available any longer. Which is a shame as it’s perfect for winter/holiday/Christmas cards.
That’s it from me for today, but I hope you will make sure to hop on over to Michelle’s blog post and check out what card she CASEd from me.
