Continuing with the 2023 Christmas in July series, I decided to use Prismacolor Premier pencils to color the images for a switch-up from my norm. I hope you enjoy my card making process!
I began this card project by stamping some of the images from the Pawsome Stamps "Deck the Halls" stamp set using Lawn Fawn's Jet Black Ink onto white card stock. Instead of my usual Copic markers, I decided to use the Prismacolor Premier colored pencils for adding color to the images. Once the pencil work was completed, I used a Pentel gold Sparkle Pop pen and a gold Sakura Gelly Roll metallic pen to add some sparkle to the ornament tops and accents.
I cut the card front panel to be slightly smaller than an A2 card panel and adhered it to an A2 size piece of Simon Says Stamp red card stock (it was part of a pre-cut package of Simon's card stock colors), then glued the panels to the front of a top folding, A2 card panel. For the sentiment, I used the Simon Says Stamp "Christmas Blessings" stamp and die set to stamp the Warm Wishes image directly onto my decorated card front panel - SCARY! - using jet black ink. For a little dimension and interest, I added Pretty Pink Posh "Cherry Red" pearls to some of the greenery at the top of the card panel... and with that, this card is completed.
I hope you are enjoying getting a head start on your holiday cards during the oppressive heat of the 2023 Christmas in July.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me - I appreciate you doing so!
Until next time…
