This is another card I made using stamps from the Essentials by Ellen Holiday 2014 release. I love the Santa with the shades! He’s such a cool dude. It looks like Santa took a bite out of the poor gingerbread man while sipping some hot chocolate.
Well anyway, enough storytelling.
I die cut a 3-opening film strip using Pretty Pink Posh’s die and PTI’s Pinefeather cardstock. I stamped the images onto white cardstock. The gingerbread man was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the other 2 images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. All images were colored using Copic makers (I only colored Mr. Gingerbread man’s eyes, mouth and bow tie in red). After coloring, I fussy-cut the images.
The backing to the 3-opening strip is a piece of kraft cardstock cut down to the same size as the strip and then stamped in red ink using the argyle-patterned background stamp. After adhering the backing to the film strip, I mounted the fussy-cut images onto the strip using small dimensional foam dots. Then I mounted the strip onto a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of red cardstock. This entire piece was mounted onto an A2 top-folding card. The sentiment was stamped using white craft ink.
