For this christmas elf card, I used luminance 6901 coloured pencil to colour the elf from Gerda Steiner Designs. A silver gel pen and a sparkle blue gel pen to colour and doodle on the negative space of the presents die. I also decided instead of having the sentiment at the front, I have it inside the card!
I have a lot of fun making these two cards. Since the negative of this die is as gorgeous as it positive. I used both and made two cards! The background of the die cuts are created using a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I have another card made just using that stamp set and the details are at the bottom of this post.
I used watercolour for this card. This is my first time using Daniel Smith for watercoloring and I had a blast!
I also have another christmas card using stamps from a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. The pine branch in this stamp set is super fine and it looks gorgeous with silver pearl embossing powder. I also used this image as the background of the other christmas card above. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped it with Ocean Waves ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Since ink colours deepened after heat embossing, I used a darker tone blue card stock to match the sentiment colour.
