Today I came up with a fun trifold project that features two wonderful big background stamps: Bakery and Toy Store. To start, I trimmed all three layers from Strathmore Bristol paper since I was going to color the stamped images with water based markers. The first piece where I stamped the Bakery measured 5″ x 4 1/4″; the second one with the Toy Store was 5 3/8″ x 4 1/4″; and the card base – 6 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
The card base was scored 1/2″ from each side so that the whole card when closed came out as a regular extended A2 size project (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). All the stamping was made with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Before switching to coloring, I simply stamped the matching sentiment in the center of the card base (the biggest piece with two scored folds) from new Holiday Messages set and set this element aside for a while.
Since I came across my old set of Distress markers that I haven’t used for years, I decided to give them a try. The blending was made with a regular brush and water.
As always, here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this card: DISTRESS MARKERS Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Moved Lawn, Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo plus TOMBOW marker n.856 (bright red shade that I didn’t find among Distress markers).
I fussy cut both colored backgrounds with my sharp small scissors following the roof lines as you can see in the pictures and glued both piece to the card base. I decided to skip all other embellishments and leave the main focus on the watercolored Christmas streets.
Hope you like this sweet holiday card and new amazing stamps from the Purple Onion Designs’ The Sweetest Little Town Collection!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
