Mini Cooper and Wanda Guess were the inspiration for this card. I love the Mini Cooper car and I was thrilled to find this Rubber Meets the Road stamp on Ebay. I stamped the Cooper using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on Simon Says stamp #120 white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment underneath.(Merry and Bright monthly kit from Simon Says Stamp) I paired it up with a piece from Doodlebug’s “Here Comes Santa” papers (Merry and Bright monthly kit from Simon Says Stamp) and then put it all on a Lipstick Red cardstock from Simon Says Stamp after I stamped the Cooper on it with Distress Festive Berries for a nice tone on tone background. After seeing this type of tonal background on the Simon Says Stamp blog post from Wanda Guess, I had to try it with the Cooper. Tiny Tinsel and Stars from Tim Holtz Idea-ology.
I can’t wait to send out this card!
The mini red envelopes are from Simon Says Stamp and the stamps and candy embellishments are from a My Monthly Hero kit. The white embossing powder is also from Hero Arts. I went around the the front of each envelope with Distress Ink Festive Berries and then sprayed the front and back of each envelope with Sheer Shimmer Spritz. The miniature bows on the top of the tree stamps are from saspainter on Etsy.
First I stamped some Ranger Gloss Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Dots & Hearts background stamp in Ranger Archival Carnation Red. On top of that I took stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Merry and Bright kit (hearts, flowers, asterisks and snowflakes) and stamped them in other bright colored Ranger Archival Inks. After I heat set that I applied some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and buffed it out over the images. I then stamped the gifts, Christmas tree and sentiment in black archival ink . The polka dot paper in the kit is from Doodlebug and I cut that down and went around the edges with the Gathered Twigs. The kit was tied with a red ribbon so I cut some of that, applied Gathered Twigs to it, tied it and adhered it to the top of the tag made from Simon Says Stamp Green Apple cardstock.
For these snowflakes I put some matte medium on the wood and let it dry before putting the adhesive and glitter on to see if I could get better adhesion. Overall, it did not make that much difference. I used Distress Glitter in Spun Sugar, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves.
