Hello Everyone, it’s Deepti here. I’m back with another post using the November Subscription box. Today, I’m sharing a slimline CAS Mixed Media Holiday card using “Believe” stencil from Maker Forte which was included in this month subscription box. Have you ever tried Mixed Media cards? If not, then this post will give you some courage 😉 It’s so easy and fun to play with different inks, and there is absolutely no chance of making mistakes 🙂

SLIMLINE MIXED MEDIA HOLIDAY CARD

To start out, I die cut the Watercolor card stock panel using Crealies Slimline Dies . Then, I ink blended it using Mowed Lawn, Candid Apple and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxides. Now the fun part: I ink smooshed this ink blended panel using same Distress Oxide colors. Every time I smooshed the color on the panel, I dried it using a Heat tool to get the grunge effect. I repeated this process till I was satisfied.

After that, I stamped this panel randomly with the “Oh Holy Night” sentiment and star from the Nativity stamp set using Black Archival ink. Here is the tip: don’t use the stamping pad for stamping, just do it with your hands to add interest.

Then, I partially stenciled this panel using the same Distress Oxide colors where I added Ornaments at the top, and stars randomly using the Believe Stencil.

Once satisfied with the background, I stenciled only the “Believe” part from the stencil using Pebeo Modeling paste. I masked the rest of the stencil with washi tape to protect the rest of my project.

Once the panel dried, I mounted it on white card base and added some silver sequins for the final touch up. I really enjoyed making this fun Mixed Media slimline card. I hope you like it too.
