Hi folks! It's Jill Foster here with a Make and Take project from CHA. This is a pair of Christmas cards featuring our wonderful Pastel Pencils on black cardstock.
Here's how you can create this look--it's simple, fun, and easy! Which is especially nice if you are planning to mass produce your handmade Christmas cards this year.
First, stamp your image, Penny Black Floral Story, onto dark cardstock and emboss with silver embossing powder.
Next, color directly onto the cardstock with Pastel Pencils. You can layer your colors to create depth and add shading. Isn't it fun how they stay nice and vibrant, even on the dark cardstock?
Now to add a cloudy, distressed edge to your piece, color with a white Gelato onto the corner of the cardstock.
Blend by rubbing with your fingertip.
Add white Gelato to all four corners.
Mount onto cardstock. Add sentiment, twine, and gems and your card is complete!
Thanks for visiting! Hope you're inspired to pull out your pastel pencils and do some coloring on dark cardstock!
