I don’t know…I collect A LOT of it. So, now it’s time to use some of it. I mixed and matched teal green wood grain, red bandanna, a quilt print, and a candy cane print. WOW! I told you we were using A LOT of pattern paper, but I think they represent this holiday card pretty well. Don’t you?
So get your prints out and see what you can come up with and post them to My Kraft Kloset Facebook page. I’d love to see them.
I created this card for the Eat Cake Graphics design team. Using the card above as a guide, start with a kraft colored card base, and adhere the three different pattern papers down.
I stamped her on just regular white cardstock and colored her in with copic markers. And added some bling in her hair and on her shoes with glitter pens, cut her out, and adhere her to the candy cane tag with 3D pop dots for some dimension. Then adhere to card.
I cut and glued some tinsel ribbon to her dress and to her bow to mimic reindeer antlers. I colored her plate with a silver pen to make it shiny and festive. Stamped the cups of hot chocolate twice, colored with copic markers, added some brown sparkle dots to the marshmallows for spice, cut them out, and adhered to the plate.
Stamped sentiment, sprinkled embossing powder, and set with a heat gun. Attached the ribbon down the side and added some gems for more sparkle. Happy Holidays! Eat, drink, & be merry! ~Kim and family
