Mr & Mrs Claus Week - Day 3

October 6, 2021

  Amy here with a slimline card using the most adorable Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Creating backgrounds can be challenging for me when creating a "scene".  I thought it would be fun to change things up from an "ink blended background" to a striped background using paper strips!  

My card measures 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 and fits into a slimline envelope from the Paper Studio line from Hobby Lobby.  This stamp set was perfect for a large slimline card!  So back to the background and a fun technique.  Using two shades of blue cardstock, various widths of cardstock strips were cut.  These were adhered lightest to darkest onto a white notecard.  Over the striped background, a snow stencil from my stash was used with Broken China Distress Ink.  To keep the snowy detail going, Shimmer Spray was spritzed liberally over the card.  To finish the background, a snowy sentiment strip was die cut using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments.  

All the images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies.  Creating the scene was so much fun with these images and the background I created!  Some images were adhered flat while others were adhered with foam adhesive.
