I am still having trouble with Blogger.
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!
Only 5 weeks now until Christmas Day- are you ready yet?
If, like me, you're still making Christmas cards, then the new digi set release from Vera Lane Studio might be right up your street! It's Mr & Mrs Claus.
I made a shaker card:
I coloured Mr & Mrs with Copics, added a few white Posca pen marks and fussy cut them. The background of the shaker is a little winter scene, made by blending Distress Oxides, spritzing with water to bleach out some of the colours and splattering with white paint for a snow effect. I die cut white glitter card to make a low, hilly landscape with some fir trees.
The frame of the shaker is a die from MFT and it took all my mathematical prowess to centre the sentiment and cut it at the correct angle! This time, rather than add foam tape to raise the top of the shaker window, I decided to die cut multiple frames, cut away the horizontal piece and glue them together. And, because I was ahead of myself this week, I left everything overnight to dry. Star sparkles were added as the shaker element and for once, they do not stick to the sides! Result!
Mr & Mrs Claus
