Well, its not a Christmas card that I'm posting on the day before Christmas, but a congratulatory card that I made for a sweet friend.
I've been so busy preparing for Christmas Eve and Christmas day, that I haven't had a chance to post on my blog!
I made this card a couple of weeks ago and wanted to wait to share it, until my friend received it. So, today, is the day.
Its a card that I made with the "This Little Piggy" stamp set. I again used the Eclipse Technique for this special card.
I had this idea in my head and couldn't wait to get it on paper. My friend accomplished something great, so I wanted to celebrate her achievement.
"Yay" was what came to mind... so thats what I spelled out with the Large Letters Framelit dies.
I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with our New Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.
I love how it turned out.
To learn how I did the Eclipse Technique, click here to see an earlier post, explaining the technique.
I used the pink pirouette light and dark markers as well as the pool party and the light rich razzleberry marker to color in the images. I also added some dazzling diamonds glitter with a thin swipe of the fine tip glue pen and patted it with my finger.
Of course, I can't forget the inside!
The cardstock colors are whisper white, pink pirouette and sweet sugar plum. I think my friend liked the card- she said it brightened her day!
Although this isn't a Christmas card, I would like to wish you all a blessed Christmas and hope you are celebrating with lots of family and friends.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
