Little Red Robin by Fliss Goodwin


 
 

 

I thought it about time to add to the Christmas card box, as after all it’s now November! Unbelievable how fast time seems to be going this year. My card features one of those ever cute Alice Palace images and I’ve made a subtle sparkly textured background, which is very easy and quick to create.

 

Here’s What You Need: 

Distress Inks – Stormy Sky, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Barn Door
Silver Glitter Card
Snowflake Die or Punch
Pinking Shears

 

Here’s How To: 

·       Stamp the collage image on white card with the black ink and paint with AquaMarkers. Add a little inking round the edges. Trim to a panel and add to a mat of kraft card. I trimmed the 2 side edges with pinking shears for added effect.
 

·       Cut a piece of card to fit your card blank and emboss with the snowflake folder. Mine wasn’t large enough for the square shape so I embossed the remaining bit by turning the card up the other way. You get a slight gap but it’s not noticeable when you add the image.
 

·       Sponge the embossed card with the Distress inks starting with the lightest colour. When dry swipe the embossed snowflakes with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with the 2 embossing powders. You’ll need to add more heat than you think to make the crystal powder melt and it gives a gorgeous subtle sparkle.
 

·       Assemble the decorated paper and image panel on the card and add a die cut or punched snowflake cut from the silver glitter card to finish. 

 

Have a great weekend.
