This year I was enjoying some of my new stamps, like MFT's Baby It's Cold Outside, and watercolouring or others that I used my copics with; it was just so relaxing, THEN on Dec 10 I realized I only had about 25 cards made & we send out over 100 plus several go overseas - CRAP! I needed to come up with a "quick & easy" design.
I immediately thought out SU's Big On Christmas because it super quick -just colouring in the letters and boom done. So I picked my colours; all the retired in colours from last year, Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi & and the image is stamped on Whisper White.
When I looked at the Purely Pomegrante I decided it needed a little something so I put it through my Big Shot (will emboss 2 perfectly) with Swiss dots. I then looked at my other layers and again felt it needed a little more so I decided to run all 76 pieces though the big shot with my new Curved Rectangles Nesties; I cut 2 at a time but did emboss them separately because I wanted the embossing to really show.
I stamped the image with SU basic black and coloured it with reinkers and blender pens. Again I didn't like how flat the card looked SO I stamped the trees & snowmen, coloured them, added a little crystal effects on the tree bulbs, and Gelly rolled the garland and outlined the words to make them sparkle. After cutting all the images and popping them up I decided to pop up the mounted image as well.
