Welcome! I told you a few days ago that I had another variation in mind for this little card design, so I thought I'd share that today. I used JustRite's Christmas Mini Tags Clear Stamps for the sentiment on front. (Original post was HERE.)
I wanted to get more color into that tag part--it needed some pizzazz. So I sponged on PTI Pinfeather ink, leaving my Spellbinders Holly Tags die in place as a stencil.
I thought that it would be a pain to sponge the holly berries separately, so I sponged everything dark green, knowing that I could add red glitter thickly enough to cover the green beneath the berries. I used my X-Press It Fine Glue Pen to dot glue on top of the green berries, then some Taylored Expressions red glitter on top of the wet glue.
Next, I want to show you a neat little glue pen trick using a
W I D E glue pen. I had some plaid patterned paper that just happened to have lines close to the same width as my X-Press It Wide Glue Pen, and that gave me an idea. . . I traced over the red/pink lines with my glue pen, then glittered them.
Whoosh, whoosh-- it was that quick! I'm just spreading the glitter over the glue lines in the picture above.
It's a little hard to see here, but, shaken off, this is what the red and pink lines looked like. Now I'm going through my whole stash looking for unused plaids! :-)
I think that between the green stenciling, the red glitter, and the extra help on the patterned papers, this little set worked better than the original. Three more for the stash--yay! Have a fabulous day,
