To create this card I first die cut an A2 panel of Meadow cardstock with the window die included in the kit. I then swiped the Turquoise ink pad included in the Patina Technique Kit directly over the panel. Next, I sprinkled the brass embossing powder (included in the Patina Technique Kit) over the panel and then heat set. I then ink blended more of the Turquoise ink as well as some Root Beer reactive ink over the panel to age it more.
Next, I die cut the inside of the front of an A2 side-folded card base with the window die and then adhered my aged window to the card front. I then die cut a scrap of Meadow cardstock with just the top of the window die. Next, I trimmed the banner out from the rest of the window by cutting the connecting tabs. I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment. After I had heat set the sentiment I then stamped the sentiment again but slightly off-set in Soft Olive to create a drop shadow and then adhered the sentiment to the card front.
Next, I stamped several images from the kit onto white cardstock in INTENS-ified black ink. I then copic colored the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blending the inside of my card with Soft Pool to ground the scene. Next, I adhered the tree and rocking horse inside the card. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the garland to the front.
To create this card I first applied the Turquoise ink directly over the stencil. Next, I ran the inked up stencil through my die cutting machine with a panel of Paradise cardstock and a rubber mat to dry emboss the panel. I then sprinkled the brass embossing powder over my panel and then heat with my heat tool. When I had finished heat setting my powder, I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folded white card base.
Next, I stamped an image and a sentiment from the Steampunk Holiday stamp set in Embossing and Watermark Ink onto white cardstock.
I then pour brass embossing powder over and then heat set with my heat tool. Next, trimmed the sentiment and image down to a small panel and then finish the card by adhering the panel with foam adhesive.
