I can hear the faint sound of jingle bells in the far off distance! That means the holidays are on their way. That also means its time to start making those holiday cards. And I’ve got a one for you today.
Slimline cards have really taken off in the card making world. This Merry and Bright card nestles quite nicely in this category. I used several different supplies (some new ones too) to create this card. Here’s the list of supplies I used.
- Card Dimensions
- Card Panel – 8 3/4′ x 3 3/4″
- Card Base – 9″ x 4″
- Distress Oxide Inks
- Faded Jeans
- Chipped Sapphire
- Black Soot
- Festive Berries
- Stamp Sets
- City Scape – “Home Sweet Home” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp
- Christmas Trees – October “My Monthly Hero” stamp kit From Hero Arts
- Merry and Bright Sentiment – “Holiday Greetings Mix 1” from Simon Says Stamp
- Other Items
- Bristol Smooth card stock by Canson in 100lb weight
- Altenew Ink Blending Tool
- Stencil – Large Falling Snow Stencil by Simon Says Stamp
- Gansai Tambe watercolor set
- Nuvo Mousse in Snow Storm
I was finally able to get my hands on a large Altenew Ink Blending Tool. They sell out so quickly that they can be hard to find. This card was the perfect opportunity to try it out so I did. I share with you my pros and cons in the video. I also used Nuvo Mousse for the first time too. I love the texture and shimmer it gave to the card.
Now that I think about it, there were quite a few “First” in making this card. Check out the video see all the first as they happen.
I hope you all enjoyed watching me make this card. If you have an Altenew ink blending tool, leave a comment below to let me know your thoughts on it. Until next time…Enjoy!
