Hello, friends! Welcome to another round of NEW release items for Paper Sweeties! I'm super excited to share this card today--it turned out better than I thought it would, so I hope you like it! Come and take a peek...
As soon as I saw the new Deck the Halls stamp set, I had a vision of using it to create a faux chalkboard card with it! I started by stamping and embossing the birdhouse in white. I then stamped a little bit off of the embossing with white ink. I colored in the "snow" with a chalkboard marker and then added some glitter. I used the same chalkboard marker to color the festive hangings and then used colored glitter gel pens to add a bit of holiday color!
I then stamped a bunch of the snowflakes from the Deck the Halls stamp set and embossed them in white powder. I stamped a shadow with white ink like I did with the birdhouse. I then added some Marshmallow Sequins to add some more texture and fun shine! I also sponged around the chalkboard panel with white ink to make it look like a frosted window.
After I finished the chalkboard panel, I added some twine and tied it all up with a fun button! This provides an anchor for the birdhouse and adds a bit more whimsy to the whole card.
I then took the layered chalkboard panel and added it to a card base. The card base was dressed up with some red and white polka dot paper and a doily up on the top. Voila! A sweet card!
