Christmas Cards with Mama Elephant

Christmas Cards with Mama Elephant

Happy Craftersday, everyone! I’m happy to be sharing with you today a card using a set from Mama Elephant. I have been wanting to use this set for about a month now and I finally get a chance to use it. The set features little reindeer, a few Christmas ornaments and a Christmas tree. Perfect to get your Christmas card making started if you haven’t already.

To make this card, I cut 110 lb red card stock in half and scored it down the middle to make my card base. From there I partial die cut a circle in 4-1/4” by 5-1/2” white card stock using my Pink and Main stitched circle die. I went a little past a half a circle but as long as the circle is even you’ll be alright.

I cut the straight line using my T-square and Fiskars knife. Just connect the two points on your circle and you’re done. Be careful not to slice your fingers! You can’t remove blood stains from cards.

Using a scrap piece of white card stock, I blended Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber Distress oxide ink. The colors are so similar that I could have just used one or the other but I’ll keep that bit of knowledge tucked away for future cards. Next, I flicked water using the end of my mini mister and let the water stay on the card a few seconds before picking it up with a dry paper towel. You can see that really neat water effect in the pictures.

Next came all the alcohol marker marker coloring. I use the Michaels brand ‘Artist’s Loft’ but I’ve been eyeing getting some Copics. If I do get them it’ll have to be before the end of the year because Copic announced a price increase in January 2019!! You read that correctly: A PRICE INCREASE! Luckily, Scrapbook Pal keeps Copics in stock for and already much discounted price so I’m shopping with them.

After the card coloring came the all the card assembly. I used foam dots from Darice to pop the Christmas tree up and one of my reindeer to finish the card.
