How to Make a Christmas Card using Ombré Inking & Copic Coloring

  1. Cut white cardstock into 4.25″x5.5″ out of Hero Arts Layering Papers.
  2. Ink the colors on the paper using mini blending tools and Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover and Mermaid Lagoon.
  3. Add ink splatters using Hero Arts Unicorn White Spray on the ombré background.
  4. Cut another white cardstock into 4.25″x5.5″ and stamp the gift box images from Merry Everything Stamp Set with Altenew Morning Frost Ink.
  5. Die cut the circle in the middle of stamped panel using 3.25″ circle die and mount it on the inked panel using foam tape.
  6. Stamp the images from Merry Everything Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
  7. Color the images with Copic markers, die cut them with Merry Everything die-namics and mount them on the bottom of card front using foam tape.
  8. Create the hands of a clock using Altenew Gold Foil Cardstock and scissors and place them to indicate 11:55 PM.
  9. Heat emboss the sentiment from Merry Everything Stamp Set with white embossing powder on a piece of black cardstock and mount the sentiment banner on the Santa sleigh.
  10. Finish off the card by adding some shimmer to the Santa with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter.

This card reminds me of my childhood waiting for midnight as I wanted to meet Santa. But I always fell asleep even before 9:00 PM. Haha! I believe that Santa was too busy loading the gift boxes into his sleigh at 11:55 PM on Christmas Eve.

That’s all for today. I had so much fun playing with MFT’s new holiday products as all of the new stamp images are so cute and inspiring. I already have tons of card ideas in my head, and I can’t wait to get my hands inky again on my new goodies from My Favorite Things.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy crafting!
