Hi there! I’m back today with another post, this time with a holiday twist! The fabulous ladies at Ellen Hutson are having a Christmas in July sale, and what better way than to celebrate with a blog hop chock full of holiday inspiration to jumpstart your Christmas crafting? You should have arrived here from Therese Calvird’s blog, and your next stop is Laurel Beard’s blog. The Essentials By Ellen line has so many different styles and products to fit your creative holiday needs, and for today’s project, I’ve used the super cute Shopper Lady stamp set, which I’ve paired with the Ugly Christmas Sweater small add-on set to create this festive holiday card. Let’s get started with all of the details!
I began by stamping the Holiday Shopper Lady, along with several gifts and her Santa hat, using Intense Black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock, adding her sweater embellishment from the Ugly Sweater Accessories stamp set. I then colored the images in with my Copic markers with a bright kelly green, cool red, and white color scheme to keep things clean, simple, and totally Christmassy. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies.
After I’d finished all of my images, I die cut the Scallops die from the center of my white A2 panel and backed it with some red glitter paper to add some sparkle. I stamped a custom sentiment using the Concord and 9th Perfectly Penned stamp set. I always forget about using my alphabet sets to create unique greetings, thinking that they will take too long to line up and make straight… but this set, with it’s hand-drawn look, doesn’t have to be perfectly straight, and I was able to whip this cute sentiment up in about 2 minutes!
After I’d created my sentiment, I adhered the festive lady and her gifts to the card front using foam adhesive.
