Hello crafters, Joy here with a beautiful Christmas card to share with you today featuring the Nativity Ornament and my favorite go-to techniques for mass producing cards. When making my holiday cards, I want each of them to appear custom and one of a kind, but I also want to be able to produce them quickly. Ink blending and die cutting allows me to do this. Let's take a look...
I started by trimming a watercolor panel to 4x5.25 inches and centered the ornament so that I would know where I wanted the yellow highlight. I started by adding Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink where the star would be and then added Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves to create a Northern Lights effect. I then blended Prized Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire to create the dark sky, which created a wonderful glow behind the Nativity Ornament.
To get that fun watercolor appearance, I spritzed the panel and let the colors meld together before drying it with my heat tool. Next, I adhered the ornament die cut and splattered the sky with water.
Before trimming the panel and adhering it to my card base, I embossed a "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the Scrappy Tails Crafts Christmas Icons 4x6 stamp set with silver embossing powder.
I hope that you have enjoyed this card and will give it a try! For more inspiration, please join us on the Scrappy Tails Crafts Facebook page! You will find stunning projects on the Scrappy Tails blog, Youtube, and on Instagram!
