Hi there Hollowers! Thanks for joining me as I create another card using the November Subscription Box. For today’s distressed Christmas card, I am using the pretty 6×6 pattern paper in the box. There are so many different patterns along with some super cute snowmen. Who doesn’t love a good snowman?!
To start this card, I chose six different pattern paper pieces to have a variety of different patterns to work with. Out of those six patterns, I chose three to foil in silver. I placed the foil over a small area of the pattern paper. Then, I ran the foil sandwich through my Mini Minc. If you have a laminator, that works just as well. After my pieces were foiled, I cut down all six pattern papers to 2 x 1 ¾. It’s the perfect size to fit all six pieces on 4 ¼ x 5 ½ piece of white Hammermill cardstock.
I wanted to distress the squares, and I did this by using a finger dauber and some Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee. I also used a Ranger Paper Distresser, then used both of these on the pattern paper’s edges to give a worn, vintage look. Next, I adhered all six pieces of pattern paper to the Hammermill cardstock using liquid adhesive.
For the card’s focal point, I used some white glitter paper and cut out a few snowflakes dies from my stash. I also silver foiled a DIY sentiment strip to add to the card. All of these pieces were adhered using liquid glue. To finish the card, I used a good amount of Dina Wakely white acrylic spray and made a whole lot of splatter. I also added a piece of blue and white twine, and a few drops of Nuvo white gloss drops.
And that’s it! Another quick and easy distressed Christmas card ready to put in the mail!
Until next week, take care!
