Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with one more awesome DT inspiration project! This is my last regular post for Eyelet Outlet (I’ll be popping in from time to time with new release samples for them) and I’ve created a Christmas card with a pretty inked nighttime snowy sky featuring our City Skyline Washi Tape and Snowflake Brads along with Santa and his reindeer!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock. I employed the DTP (direct-to-paper) technique to ink the background with Ranger stormy sky and chipped sapphire distress inks and then splattered white acrylic paint mixed with a tad bit of water with my fan brush across the panel. I applied a strip of City Skyline Washi Tape to a scrap piece of 110# Solar White cardstock, cut it out along the tops of the buildings, and adhered it to the bottom of the inked panel. I stamped Santa with Reindeer (a rubber stamp thank you gift in one of my previous Taylored Expressions orders) and the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink, and then added the Snowflake Brads to complete the panel.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a super narrow strip of Basis Blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from The Project Bin Merriest Christmas stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink and layered the panel on Basis Blue cardstock.
And one more look… so loving how this turned out! You know how I love me some Christmas all year long, and I really enjoyed creating this with the fun washi tape and brads!
