Christmas Card Throwdown

Christmas Card Throwdown

Thursday, 13 March 2014


This card was made as homework for Clean and Simple 3, class, Day 4, More Optical Illusions, with the skyline and blue skies with gold embossed stars.   I didn't have exactly what the class requirements were, but I had some star stamps and a suitable saying, and I made the skyline stamp by cutting into some black rubber that had been hanging around in my stash for years, I used a Die-namics cutting die, "Skyline Border" and used Sellotape 1/2" double sided tape to stick it onto a piece of clear dvd cover.   I keep all these odd bits and pieces hoping they will come in handy, and they eventually do!!  however the stamp I made turned out ok, I used a spellbinders square cutting die from "Majestic Elements" to make the mask for the card front and I only had two blue ink pads from Memento which were "Danube Blue" and "Bahama Blue" so I used these and the gold embossing powder is Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold.   These are still difficult cards for me.
