Elegant Christmas Tree

Cardmaking Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

Have a Magical Day

April 27, 2020

Hello! Samantha here! Welcome!

I’ve wanted to create a card using this Dragon die for the longest time but could never figure out a background. Paper alone wasn’t going to give me the look I wanted so I brought out the ink pads and created my own colourful background!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut out a card front using white card stock measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm

Step 2: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of purple ink onto the card front.

Step 3: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of pink ink onto the card front.

Step 4: Using a blending tool, fill in the gaps, blending yellow ink onto the card front.

Step 5 : Using the star dies – from Elegant Christmas Tree die cut a stencil from a piece of scrap white card stock.

Step 6: Use this star stencil and a blending tool to apply white pigment ink onto the card base.

Step 7: Move the stencil around, and repeat step 6 until you are happy with the amount of stars on the card front.

Step 8: Using a variety of pink card stock die cut the clouds.

NOTE: These clouds are actually from the Elizabeth Craft Designs ‘tree’ die.

Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to light pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Diva). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the wings, tail, and ears of the dragon.

Step 10: Die cut the remaining pieces of the Dragon – use a variety of shades in pink card stock.

Step 11: Assemble the dragon and adhere the pieces together. Adhere googly eyes to the dragon.

Step 12: Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Adhere this to the card front.

Step 13: Adhere card base to an A6 card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

I loved playing around with this bokeh ink blending background technique – especially using die cut stars to create a stencil. Hopefully it inspires you to try this technique maybe even die cut your own stencil.

Happy Crafting !
