I started with the Christmas cards this month. This year i will not wait until the last moment. As is it always with the start of a card series the first ones will be just stretching my creative muscle. Seeing what the stamps do, and getting ideas in. I would not start with the complicated cards just yet.
As always since our family is quite big i think i need to make close to 40 cards this year. Of course not everyone is equal sort of. I would do something special for my parents and brother. But for the rest of the family I am trying to make mass produced cards. I usually go for 2 cards of the same type.
First attempt is trying out the new SSS card kit from November. It did have some nice stamps and sentiments especially for Christmas. As I did have some nice metallic base cards, I decided to make a really shiny card.
Basically i stamped the trees with some ranger perfect medium, this is a really sticky ink, like 3 times as sticky then versamark. Then i used my ranger perfect pearls to color in the trees. i repeated the process for the falling snow stamp.
You can set the perfect pearls with some water mist.
