Vintage Christmas Wagon Card

My holiday greeting card measures 5″ X 7″ and starts with a front card panel and card base made from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. I stenciled the adorable Snowflake Cluster design on the background of the panel, using Mermaid Lagoon Distressed Oxide Ink and my Simon Says Stamp Blender Brush. I inked off on a scrap sheet then inked on, keeping the color light for the background. This is a GREAT STENCIL to have in your stash. I’m so glad I bought it.

I die cut the CZ Design Merry and Bright dies using a heavier weight vellum for the shadow and red cardstock for the letters. I added liquid applique to the tops of the letters, heat set it using my embossing heat gun and set it aside to work on the car. For the car, I die cut the elements from red, woodgrain pattern paper, metallic silver, black and white cardstock. I assembled the car, cutting apart pieces and adding pieces in different papers. I added vellum to the window openings for glass. The tree was cut in white and colored using Copic markers in four greens – YG67, YG17, YG03, YG00. I used a fine tip green marker to add the teeny, tiny evergreen needles. Once my car was assembled, I splattered it with white paint using Dr. PH Marten’s Bleed Proof paint. I touched the die cut with my brush for the lines of color to go with the splatters of flakes!

The card was assembled, positioning the phrase and car on the card front panel. I wanted the card to look like it was in a snowstorm, climbing a big snowy hill. I used Copics in B000, B000, B0, B02, B04, C3, and C1 to create the snowy landscape. I attached the card and phrase using Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares to make them stand out. I added die cut snowflakes from the Merry and Bright die set and spattered more “snow” over the entire scene. Once dry, I attached the card front to the card base to complete the card.

Merry and Bright Tag

With scraps in my studio, I created this 2-3/4″ wide X 5″ tall tag. I used the largest size tag from the Hero Arts Nesting Tags die set. I use this set all of the time because the tags are generously sized for decorating. I used my paper cutter and Strips 1 dies to cut the colored and patterned strips. If you have a hard time cutting even strips, this is a great set to have. I attached the cuts in a diagonal direction and added faux white stitching using my Gelly Roll Pens Size 10 (my favorite size)  for added interest.

I die cut the phrase just like I did in the vintage car card (above) and added the snowflake and star die cuts from the set. Iridescent sparkle gems were added to the centers for a little bling! Gingham ribbon was added for a tag string. The Gingham pattern paper is from this Honey Bee Stamps paper pad. I can’t remember where I found the dotted paper, but really any scrap will do to achieve this look. It’s a great way to use up those pretty pieces of paper you can’t stand to throw away. 🙂 This tag is ready for gift giving!
