Hugs & Kisses at Christmas

Hi there

Here is the last of my Christmas cards to share for this year, this is the card I made for Matt.

I bought this stamp about a week before Christmas from Hobbycraft for £1!

I stamped the image and coloured it in with ProMarkers.  It's not a Christmas stamp but I gave the birds red breasts to make them look like Robins.  I used a heart die to cut out the image and used the same die to cut a piece of snowflake patterned paper.  I offset these and adhered them to a white linen card base, the white heart being popped up for dimension.  I stamped the sentiment, which was made up from two different stamp sets, in the bottom corner and then added some clear Wink of Stella to the birds and the heart, and then covered the heart with Glossy Accents.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Hobbycraft - Love Birds; Clearly Besotted - Holiday Sentiments and Many Messages
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Die: Xcut - Nested Hearts
  • Patterned Paper: Doodlebug - Santa Express
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Accented with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents
