Hey friends, it’s Christy! I hope you all had the very merriest of Christmases! Now that we’re just days away from switching out our calendars, I wanted to create a card that captured that spirit. A new dawn of a new day of a new year.
I stamped out my images from Sealed with a Kiss, colored them with some cool gray Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a background by sponging Distress Inks onto a Small Stitched Circle Stackables to look like the sky at sunrise.
I die-cut a snowdrift with Stitched Hillside Borders and stamped my Merry Messages sentiment on it using Manatee ink. Then I glued that down to the bottom of my sunrise scene and added my seals. I popped that up over some Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper trimmed down with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and a Really Rainbow Christmas flag with the end selectively die-cut with one of the Stitched Party Banners.
As a finishing touch, I added a few stars with a white gel pen to signify the night turning into day. If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check it out on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty.
I wish you all a peaceful end to 2018 and hope that the new year brings you joy and happiness and lots of crafty mojo! Speaking of which, there’s still time to enter our Wonderful Winter Challenge, it will be open until Sunday, January 6th at 11:59PM ET ! We can’t wait to see what you create.
