Merry Christmas Mixed Media Card

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are having a wonderful last weekend before Christmas!! So much to do, so little time left...only six days!! Eek!! I have one more scheduled DT post on Christmas Eve but otherwise, I probably won't be around blogland much until the new year. I do have a mixed media Christmas card to share with you today :)


I started with heavyweight watercolor paper and adhered a crumpled up sheet of tissue paper to it with Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium. Then I applied a coat of Gesso and let it dry. Next, I used Wendy Vecchi Texture paste with a The Crafter's Workshop Art Is stencil and a Dylusions leaf stencil. Once it dried, I used Twinkling H2O's in various shades for a shimmer effect and some Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub. Then I sprayed some Dylusions Cherry Red and Postbox Red and dabbed it off. I sprinkled some Shabby White Embossing powder in random places for a bit of texture and used a Deco Art Snow Writer as well. Merry Christmas is a My Craft Spot stamp (no longer in business). I stamped it on tissue paper and then used Multi Medium to adhere it to the card.


I used the same technique for the Spellbinders Poinsettias as I did on my previous card...I wet the paper and when it was damp but not so wet that the paper would tear, I wrapped the petals around a paintbrush and then used flat pliers and scrunched the sides together. I then brushed Iridescent Red Twinkling H2O's over the petals but you can't see the shimmer at all in the pictures. I tucked Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs, cheesecloth and baby's breath under the flowers.


I cut the Memory Box Large Winter Sled in Grungeboard and then covered it with Festive Berries Distress Ink. Then I layered Deco Art Crackle Glaze on top. Once it dried and cracked, I dabbed Gathered Twig Distress Ink on top to highlight the cracks. Dec 25 is a My Creative Time die. It was covered with Shabby White Embossing Enamel.


The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Six Fathoms from the DL.ART The Mermaid Tale bundle. The button is a Poppy Stamps Stitched button die. The snowflake is from Hobby Lobby. I covered it with gesso and then Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heat set it.

  30. This is so beautiful Lisa!! I love all that texture and color! I can see the hint of gold from the Inka gold and it looks beautiful paired up against the reds/green. Love that sled!!! Gorgeous card my friend. I am so excited for Christmas day! I get to spend it with family and have some good food and conversation. And I get to enjoy my two 1 year old niece and nephew this year..they are old enough now to open their own presents and that should be fun to watch. I hope you have a very beautiful holiday with your family! I still cannot believe its just days away! Merry Christmas my friend!
