(collective groan) Yes, this is a Christmas card. I know it is early but I need to get in the holiday mood for an article I am writing so I made a warm up card:
I played with some background stamps and I wanted a distressed look so I made a large distressing background stamp with plastic canvas and craft foam. Watch the short video to see how:
This is the background I made in the video:
To make the 3-D element on the card I punched 5 scallop circles and folded it in half, then opened them up and folded them in half again and pinched two of the folds together like so:
This card is quick enough to mass produce, plus i think the medallion would be cute on a tag or scrapbook page. All of the stamping I did on glassy photo paper with water based markers.
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
