Well Christmas is most definitely in the air....well here in Lili of The Valley world it is. Lol Today Lili Of The Valley are launching the first of a huge selection of Christmas goodies ie digi stamps, Simply Prints and sentiments etc over the next few week. I will be sharing my cards during that time highlighting the new collection and I can't wait.
So onto today's card, for this I have used one of the new digi stamps called 'Christmas Angel-Kindness' which I coloured with Copic pens. Isn't she beautiful! I team her up with one of the new 'Elegant Christmas Sentiments' and digi paper from a previous launch. Once the stamp and sentiment is available in store I will add the links to this post. I hope you like it. x (For Sale - £4.50 + P&P)
For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps, and the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.
First I imported the pretty digital paper in my graphics program, then printed it out onto some good quality printer paper. The paper was trimmed down to fit my card front, leaving a slim border around the edge.
For the next part I used MS Word, and changed the white background on both the image and sentiment (as they're both JPGs) to a transparent background, then saved them both as a PNG images. I imported the digital paper into my graphics software and add the image and sentiment over the top, and resized them to fit my project. I printed out the paper with the images onto colouring card and die cut it into a circle. I coloured in the branch and some of the head wreath with Copic pens.
As the image on the circle was made into a transparent image it meant that you could see the patterned paper through it. To remedy this I printed out the same image again onto colouring card, coloured the angel and robin in using Copic pens, and fussy cut them out. Both images were then glued into place on the circle. The completed circle was glued onto a white doily die cut mat and funky foam was added to the back. The finished topper was glued to the centre of the card front. To finish the card I added a few pearls around the card and a little glitter to the angels wings.
You can email me at email@example.com if you require more information about how I created this card.
