I’d like to wish you all a safe & happy Christmas

Inkables:  Big Ones Pearls, Snowflake Mask 

Easy Frames: Baubles 4”

Micron Pen ..230 Hunter Green

Distress Ink: Evergreen Bough

Distress Oxide: Antique Linen

Acrylic Paint: Green, Dylusions Shimmer Calypso Teal, Cream, Dusky Pink Gold.

Memento Ink:Teal Zeal

Brilliance Ink: Galaxy Gold

Pretty Sparkles: Midas

Gelli Plate & Brayer

Thinly spread mid-green paint onto your Gelli Plate with a brayer. Place the Pearls (Big One) onto the Gelli plate, then a piece of copier paper, press carefully & remove the excess paint. Depending on the size of your Gelli plate you may need to repeat this process… 

Let the paint dry a little then add some Calypso Teal Shimmer paint, this time place the Snowflake Mask onto the Gelli plate & repeat the copy paper method.. 

When that’s dried a little add a layer of gold paint. Using one of the larger snowflake stamps from the Boarder set, stamp off the ink (from the Gelli plate onto a piece of paper).
When done add some cream paint & take a print. 

Leave your prints to dry.. 

Using the 4” bauble template draw around the inside with a Micron Pen & cut out… 

Add some Evergreen Bough Distress Ink around the edges & some extra down one side… 

Add some snowflake’s from the Boarders set, with a teal ink … 

Cut your print down to approximately 14cm. Stamp, freehand, some of the text onto your background… 

Stamp some snowflake’s in gold ink onto your background . Add some Distress Oxide Antique Linen & Distress Ink Evergreen Bough around the edges… 

Glue the baubles to your background, I used some foam pads behind two of them.. 

Using an off cut of a background paper stamp the Crackin’ Christmas sentiment, cut out & add a white piece of paper to create a ‘mat & layer’ … 

Glue  the sentiment to your card & add a few sparkles.. 

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Christmas … Ann xxx
