Good morning, crafters! Today is the day for Simon Says Stamp’s Holly Jolly Release and I’ve made a card using one of the many exciting products. The new Outline Merry Christmas Background stamp is pretty versatile. I chose to color mine, but you can also ink blend, watercolor, and more.
To begin, I stamped onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ 80# white cardstock and then colored bits of the background image with Copic Markers:
- YG67, YG17, YG25, YG21
- G29, G9, G5, G2, G00
- R39, R29, R24, R22
- BG49, BG45, BG11
- C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, 0
After coloring the letters, I used cool gray copics to shadow parts of the background to give the image more dimension. When finished, I used 2 dies to create a mat using Waffle Flower A2 Layers and Waffle Flower Additional A2 Layers die sets. on the colored panel so I could have a frame. I chose Concord & 9th Poppy colored cardstock behind the panel pieces. Lastly, I adhered the panel to a white card base.
