This is the 2nd of the latest orders from Ann
If you saw the order – he loves DELTICS – what would you think of?
And then – what on earth can you do to make a card using Deltics – and make it christmasy??
But I googled so a least I knew what it was
Then googled images and found this one...
Took it into the fab Picasa Piknik and added some festive extras....
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
Black A4 card
Half a sheet of gold mirri card
A Chloe festive flourish stamp
Versamark ink pad
Gold detail embossing powder
A couple of peel off christmas trees.
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
I folded the black card in half and creased well – I used a really thick card as I was doing it landscape so needed it to keep upright.
Using the versamark ink I inked the stamp then randomly stamped over the front of the card – when I was happy I covered with gold detail embossing powder and heated.
In the piknik program I resized and rotated the Santa hats and put them on the engines...
I also added the names then printed the sheet and matted onto gold card then onto the card blank
I used a green tree and 2 small gold trees on the platform and added tiny red gems to the gold trees.
Next it was pva glue which covered almost everywhere snowy and around the hats – then I covered with glamour dust!
All in all – not bad for a card making who struggles to move away from decoupage!
Thankfully I have the last 2 of Ann's cards made now – I'm not sure how they will be received but I gave it my best and cant do any more than that can I?
They will go in the post to Ann tomorrow and I am sure they will be shared with you all
