Hello there Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Hope this post finds you all well. Tonight I would like to share a Christmas card with you. For this card I decided to use Imagination Craft's beautiful new Starlight Paints, which Sue tells me, have been so....popular, they are bringing out some gorgeous new colours . The one I use most of all at the moment is the White Gold, which looks quite spectacular, especially on die-cuts. For this card I have used Platinum, Menthol, Green, Dark Orchid and the very pretty Cyclamen, hope you like it.
Fold the ready creased card down the centre, making a 7"x7" base card. Matt a slightly smaller piece of black card onto the base card. I do like using black card as it makes the colours show up better. Cut a smaller piece of striped white card and paint around all four edges with the Cyclamen Starlight Paint. Matt this onto the black, leaving a small border of the black showing. Next matt a smaller piece of green card onto the white painted card with the cyclamen edge.
Cut a smaller piece of black card and lay the diamond stencil onto it and using a piece of cut n' dry foam, dab all the starlight paint colours through the design. Matt this onto the green card.
Take another piece of green card and stamp the snowflake border stamp onto it using the Versamark pad and heat emboss with black embossing powder. Do this a further three times. Colour with the Starlight Paints. Matt the original image onto a square of the white striped card, the edges painted with the cyclamen, to match the previous matt.
Fix this to the centre of the base card. Dot small amounts of the cyclamen paint around the scrolls and some Platinum around the edges of the design.
Cut out the other images and 3D them onto the original image, using silicone glue.
There we are, card finished. Unfortunately the gorgeous sheen from the Starlight paints do not show up too well , best to be seen in person so to speak See you all soon, and thanks for stopping by, hope you have
enjoyed your visit.
Love and rainbows,
