Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy Fri-YAY!   I’m sharing an easy CAS Christmas card today to play along with some challenges.  Here’s my card.


Using my MISTI, stamped the bunny from Hello Bluebird Skating Party with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock.  Wanted to show him in skating motion, so masked him, then shifted the cardstock panel to the right 1/8 of an inch and stamped with Memento London Fog ink.  Repeated again twice but using just the leftover ink on the third try (generation stamping) for an even lighter image.


To create the reflection, mirror stamping was done by stamping the bunny on a piece of acetate with Memento London Fog ink.  Flipped it over , lined up with the image and pressed.  Removed mask and coloured in image with Copics.


Next die cut out with an A2 stitched rectangle die (retired) and black heat embossed the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Snowy Sayings with clear glitter embossing powder to finish.

Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your weekend.  Stay home and craft on!
