Hello! Niki here and today I have a card that I made with the November Subscription Box. This month’s box sold out pretty fast, so after you finish with this post be sure to check out the others still in stock, and don’t forget to make a note to sign up for the December Box when it becomes available.
On to today’s card!
I wanted to make something with just the contents of the November box, but I ended up using a circle punch too. I picked out that perfect green cardstock for the card front, but since I was going to be coloring the gingerbread boy, he needed to be on white. So, I made a plate-shaped spot for him 🙂
Once I punched out the circle, I trimmed 1/8” all around the edges of the green cardstock to create a framed look on the card base. I didn’t stick it on yet – instead, I used it to position the gingerbread boy. I stamped the image directly onto the white card base and got to work coloring him. The two Copic Sketch markers I used are E23 for his body and E25 for the edge.
The next thing I did was add glittery red buttons with the bottle of Glitter Accents that came in the box. I thought this stuff was similar to Glitter Drops when I first saw it. Nope. It’s very different – the gel is a thicker, creamy consistency and there’s a LOT more glitter. It dries beautifully!
He’s so stinkin’ cute, isn’t he?!
While those Glitter Accent buttons were drying, I used the time to draw some faux stitching around the edges of the green cardstock with a Uniball Signo pen in White.
Then, I added some foam squares to the back of the green cardstock and adhered it to the card base. For the sentiment, I cut a 1/2” wide piece of white cardstock, stamped it in black ink, and flagged the ends. I used a couple more foam squares to add it to the card.
Thank you so much for reading today!
