Kristina Werner has started her annual holiday card series on her blog. I love following this series and trying out some new stuff. I have learned a really big truth doing this, though, and that is that I am not and never will be a Copic coloring maven. Nope. Can't do it to save my life. Her Wednesday posts are usually devoted to some kind of colored-in card. Yeah....I probably won't be doing those.
On the up-side, I have done a few of the other design types. This was my take on her Day 1 card. Embossing paste sprinkled with distress glitter and a die cut sentiment.
I tried it out in guy-birthday-card form as well. I used just the white embossing paste on one, and tried adding some ink to the paste in the other.
Day 2's take. Hers had a really cute little reindeer looking in the window, but as I said, I don't color, so I went looking in my stamps for something else that would do and came up with this snowman. I did acutally try to shade in a little on one side of his rear. That was a total fail, so I put wink-of-stella shimmer on the front and back which doesn't show up here, so you see just a very plain snowman butt on the front.
It will have to do.
Day 3's take. Now, I happened to have the exact stamp set she used for this one, although I did use a different color scheme for the night sky because I didn't have all the distress ink colors she used.
At the end of each card video, she has suggested ones from years past you can look at as well. This was one I apparently missed and had similar stuff to make it. Love doing the holiday cards. They make me feel prepared and festive and somehow that's very different from the Christmas stuff showing up before Halloween in Target or Costco. That's just irritating.
