Cozy Wishes Christmas Card

 

Hey cardmaking friends.  It's Sandi MacIver here for Team Tuesday and today I'm sharing Simon Says Stamp Cozy Wishes with you.  

This is the November Card Kit of the Month and it's fabulous.

 First up I'm going to be using the adorable new 6 x 8 stamp set called Cozy Wishes full of lanterns, bird houses and sweet little birds.

There is also a great selection of sentiments. The kit also includes a Scandinavian Christmas Embossing Folder which I have used on todays card. 

So let's get started on the card.

How to create the Simon Says Stamp Cozy Wishes Card:

Start with a top folding A2 sized card base in Hammermill white. 

Next, use the Chunky A2 Scalloped Rectangles to cut a rectangle (second largest in the set). 

Place the cut rectangle inside the Scandinavian Christmas Embossing Folder and run it through your die cutting machine.

Finally, use foam squares to attach it to the card front.

Creating the Art Pieces for the Card.

Place a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of hammermill white card into the Misti.

Lay in the stamps needed for the card and stamp them with the Intense Black Ink from Simon Says Stamp (this ink is copic friendly). 

Color the images with the Copic Markers:
  •  Blues:  BG 53, BG57, BG09 
  •  Yellows: Y00, Y11, Y15 
  •  Greens:  G21, G94, G99 
  •  Browns:  E21, E23, E25, E27 

On a separate scrap of white cardstock stamp the sentiment in black.

Once the sentiment is dry, fussy cut it out (there is a coordinating die set for this stamp set but I don't have it). 

Cut out the lantern, the bird and the three branches. 

Finally, use foam squares to attach them to the card front. 

TIP - you could also add a bit of Clear Stickles to the lantern for some candle light glisten, or frost on the outside of the lantern.
