2018 Christmas Card

Howdy Peeps!!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my
2018 Christmas Card.

I just ordered and received a 12 x 12 Gel Press plate!
....and I wanted to play with it!
I pulled out a few 

Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics
Red Wagon
Moss Green
Bright Gold
Canvas Corp 
Ivory and Kraft Cardstock
Black E Flute

Golden Orange

Circle Background Positive and Negative

Multi Medium Matte

I enjoyed a time of exploring my Gel Plate, paints and a stamp.
(sorry no photos)

My thoughts were to create a Christmas Ornament
but can I just say.....that's not working out so well.
A lot of hard work and it's not nearly as nice as I pictured in my head.

Now, I had cut my 3 pieces of monoprinted cardstock into 1 x 12 strips
so I decided to weave them together.
I then adhered the woven paper to a piece of
Kraft Cardstock with Multi Medium and let it dry overnight.

Using the Tattered Pinecone die, I diecut a piece of Black E Flute!
I colored my branch with a bit of Partridge in a Pear Tree Glimmer Mist.
I then tied a little golden bow and adhered it to the branch.

I cut up the piece of woven paper into 3 x 5.5 pieces.

I inked the woven paper and card with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.

I then put my card together with Multi Medium!
Here is my finished card!

Hoping to have time to make up a few more of this beauty!!

THANK YOU for stopping by
to check out my creative play time!
