Hi my dear Die-Namites Friends.
It's Susanne today and I like to share my challenge inspiration today. I made a shabby Christmas card and you'll find a step by step tutorial when you scroll down.
Take part in our December Challenge! As always you can win a 25$ gift coupon for the online store! This is our photo inspiration for you:
I used the Holly Branch on my card.
Here are the step by step instructions:
Cover some brown textured cardstock with a thin layer of gesso. I used paper from the DCWV 16" x 20" Neutrals Premium Cardstock Stack. Let it dry.
Cut two "Holly Branches" from white cardstock and texture them with a stamp. I used the old book page stamp from Rubber Dance.
Add some texture to the background as well. I used the postcard stamp from Rubber Dance.
Cut the basic shape. I used a stiched rectangle die.
Add some brown color to the background. I used the Chocolate Gelato. You can blend the Gelatos with a wet baby wipe.
Color the berries of the "Holly Branch". I used a red Neocolor II watercolor crayon.
Adhere the branches and add some olive green splatters for more interest. I mixed some Neocolor II to get the right color.
Use some Fran-tage Embossing Enamel for some bling. I used the chunky white and the aged silver. Distress the edges of the paper and add it to your card base (I used a white card base).
Here are some more detailed Images:
I used some silver embossing powder for the sentimen (which comes also from Rubber Dance) and added some red twine with staples.
