Hi friends, I am back with my third card from the RAM Stamps new release. As a card maker that lives in Australia, what could be better than a Christmas card with two of our gorgeous national animals – the kangaroo and koala. I am lucky enough see these animals over my back fence. Let’s get started on today’s card…..
As always, I started off today’s card by getting all of the die cutting and panels made. I have a card base that measures 5 x 5 inches, made from Neenah 80lb cardstock. Then a slightly smaller panel of Cheerful Plaid paper from MFT Stamps and glued it to the card base.
I printed the image on my Pixma printer and coloured with Copic markers. and hand drew in a small grounding. The colour combinations I have used include –
RV09, RV04, YG09, YG06, YG07, R20, E49, E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, C4, C2, C0, C00, E55, E53, E51, E50, E000, E0000, N4, N6.
I stencilled in an Australia “big sky” using the MFT Stamps Cloud Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Once the colouring was dry, I added shimmer pen to the Christmas lights. I then die cut the panel using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scallop Square die and added it to the card base with foam tape.
That completes card number three from this new release, I hope you love this little piece of Aussie Christmas and will join me again tomorrow for my last card for this new release.
Thanks again for visiting x
