Hello once again. I hope you are keeping well. A new challenge has started at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge, the theme is always anything goes goes Festive/Christmas. Here is my card:
The alphabet was stamped, Copic coloured, and cut out using my Scan’n’cut machine.
Once the letters were arranged on my slimline card, I thought it was a little too CAS, a little too plain, but didn’t really want to add a scene, or add anything into the background, or too many other layers so I turned to my Clearly Besotted stash again, and found these images.
Stamped, coloured, then cut out with my machine – and added to the letters so it looks like they are popping over them – they are called ‘pop-up’ Christmas after-all………
I think I’m getting the hang of this machine for cutting out my stamped images – as long as the images have a good outline, and in fact on the second photo – the snowman over the letter ‘a’ – you can still see a pencil mark I made to ensure the Scan’n’cut outlined the whole image – I will go back and erase that at some point – honest!
I was much happier with these characters and the letters – still CAS, but not plain – to me anyway.
I hope you can come and join us and get your stash ready for this next Christmas – hopefully a more family orientated Christmas…………I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery. xx
