Every Blessing Stamp set
For those of you that love making your own Christmas cards that is a gift to the receiver……you have to think ahead.
This is my first card of the season to make. I like doing the multiple stamping and 10 at a time is very doable for me.
let me explain,
After ordering all the supplies I need for this card…..
1)I design my card, writing down the measurement of each piece to be cut.
2) Gather all my Paper supplies that will be needed – CUT all 10 at once, place in stacks.
3)Because I water-colored , I next stamped all 10 with StazOn ink ( I stamped twice over image to get a sharper black image) . Water-colored …..sit aside to dry.
4)Embossed my verse on banner.
5) Use sponge wedge to add highlights coming from star. Work from CENTER of star- OUT. Keeping the darkest colors in center. Bring color down to shepherds…… rays coming out -very light.
6) Glue and gold glitter to star – set aside to dry.
7) Adhere my black & white strip on card base (Crumb Cake C/S) I added one dimensional to back at center of star. Position stamped image in center, place GOLD GLITTER C/S (Use 2 largest Oval framelits) over to check position, then adhere.
Angle down slightly …….staple at area folded over, I’ve added ONE dimensionl in center of banner.
Make 2 small bows of linen thread , glue dot on, placing close together.
