Distress Oxide Christmas Cards

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

Hi Crafty friends and welcome back. Sandi MacIver here and in keeping with our monthly Distress Oxide Challenge, I created some Christmas cards to share with you today.

Distress Oxide Christmas Cards

I won’t go into too much details as I share a video below walking you through the steps to create these fabulous backgrounds.

Distress Oxide Christmas Cards

I did start by Smooshing Distress Oxide ink onto Watercolor paper. On some backgrounds I added a second layer of colour with the Nuvo Shimmer Powders.

Over that I did a bit of stenciling again using Distress Oxides. Once all the backgrounds were finished, I die cut frames using the Penny Black Leaf Stitched Frames and snowflakes with the My Favourite Things Layered Snowflakes Die-namics.

Finally the sentiments are from Concord and 9th Happy Holidays Label dies above. the “JOY” is from My Favourite Things and the other sentiments are My Favourite Things “Birdie Brown – Greetings Galore.

I used a few jewels and sequins as my final embellishments.
