Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #142 – Charlotte’s “All About Christmas” Challenge

This week at the Watercooler I’m hosting the challenge! It’s my first time hosting, which is very exciting for me. We’re all about Christmas this week, and I decided to make something with plenty of sparkle! (This is my second post of the day! Click here to see my debut DT post for The Male Room.)

I started by treating my white card base with my anti static powder tool. I then took a large snowflake stamp from Knorr Prandell and stamped it several times across my card base with embossing ink. I coated them with Wow Cloud 9 embossing powder which is beautifully glittery.

I had originally stamped my sentiment directly onto the card base and masked it off whilst stamping the snowflakes. My mask very slightly tore the paper over the sentiment, but I figured I could fix it by restamping the sentiment (from Lawn Fawn’s Merry Messages) as I hadn’t removed the stamp from my MISTI at that point. Unfortunately it didn’t go to plan.

Instead I stamped the sentiment onto a snippet of white paper using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I then created a mat with red mirror card to add a little pop of colour to my card. I used some double sided tape to adhere the sentiment to the card.

I’m actually glad in a way that I had the problem with the sentiment stamping, because I love how it looks with the pop of red from the mirror card. I’m really pleased with how this card came together, and I do love the sparkle! It’s just perfect for Christmas.

I hope you found this card inspiring, and I look forward to seeing your Christmas cards for the challenge!

Love,

Lady Joyful
