Our theme for this month is ‘Showcasing the Holiday Catalog.’ When I first heard this, I thought, ‘How in the world am I going to showcase the Holiday Catalog with one project?’ After dwelling on this for a few days I decided it just wasn’t gonna happen. No way. Not happening. Once I accepted that, I decided to highlight two products that I didn’t feel were very well displayed in the catalog. You just can’t tell how neat these products are from the small pictures in the catalog, so maybe my project will help a little with that!
The two main products that I’m featuring are the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way Stamp set. So here’s what I came up with.
I was just playing around one night and somehow this beautiful creation developed.When I started working with the Sleigh Ride thinlits, it struck me that I needed a beautiful wintery night sky background for the sleigh ride scene. Watercoloring has been one of my favorite techniques lately and it hit me that a watercolor background would be perfect. I think it definitely added some drama to the card.
To make the card, first I created the watercolor background and then added some glitter splatters to look like snow. Then I cut some whisper white cardstock using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and added those pieces on top of the watercolor. As clear as mud? If you would like to see exactly how I made the card, check out this video.
So what do you think about this card and these products? I saved some great news for last- you can get the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way stamp set in a bundle and save 15%! Use the links at the bottom to do your shopping, or contact you own demonstrator to order.
