A Christmas Wish

Double click any photo to zoom in for details

Hello, I'm back today with a card I made for my weekly DT spot over on the Artistic Outpost blog.  It was made using the Christmas Chalk stamp set.  I decided to combine chalkboard style with rustic.  I grabbed a sheet of corrugated cardboard and cut it to 5x5", then used scissors to distress the edges.  I dry brushed the cardboard with gesso and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. The sentiment was stamped on black card stock with white pigment ink, dried it with my heat tool and die cut it with a tiny postage stamp die from the new Tim Holtz Thinlits Labels set.  The snowman was stamped twice, fussy cut and one was popped up with craft foam for dimension.  The 25th was also cut with a die from the Labels set.  My snowflakes were cut from white corrugated cardboard with the new Stacked Snowflake die.  The card shell was stamped with the snowflakes from the Snowy Woods set with Frayed Burlap. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  That's it for Artistic Outpost this week.  I hope you will be inspired to Show Us Your Art with the Artistic Outpost monthly challenge.  You have all month and the challenge theme is Anything Goes.

These supplies were used to create the card above.  They are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique where Ranger/Tim Holtz and most other name brand products are always 20% below MSRP.

Hi Linda, I just had to comment on this beautiful piece of art. You certainly do have a talent for putting elements together with a result that they were supposed to be that way. A question, when die cutting corregated cs, as you did on the snowflake banner, doesn't the process smoosh the cs, and it's no longer corregated? You must have a trick?
