Prima Sweet Peppermint Mixed Media Christmas Card

Hi all

I have recently been trying out a new style of card design and trying to go with a more layered mixed media style. It is a bit hit and miss at the moment but i will keep trying. Have you tried anything new this week?

To make this card i first covered a black card in snowflakes using a stencil and DecoArt Modeling paste. I then too a DecoArt Media Mister in Green-Yellow and added a bit to my pallet with some water to create a wash and i used this to add the color to the card.

Next i used the Prima Sweet Peppermint Kit and cut a strip of green card and inked it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

I then cut a square 4 x 4 and adhered it over the strip and added a bit of brown web trim over the square.

I added a thin strip of paper i cut from the bottom of the page.

Then used one of the sheets with the toppers on, and cut out a few to add as another layer and then added the ticket on top as a sentiment.

                      I finished off the card with the matching paper flowers and sequins.

                                           Thank you for visiting

Absolutely stunning card Katie. I love this style of card. I have had so little time to craft anything other than simple cards lately, but have some new products to use now the madness is passing. Cathy x
