The Let’s Get Hopping Team are sharing A Christmas Carol this month. For my cheerful carol singers, I decided to team up Festive & Fun and Zany Zoo for the perfect pairing.
Singing various Christmas carols I eventually found a Christmas carol I wanted to focus on. Deck the Halls seemed most fitting with these images.
First I set to stamping the two images using Black Memento Ink onto scraps of Basic White cardstock. It was nice to lose myself in the colouring, which I did with alcohol Blends Pens. Tempted to fussy cut the images, I decided to first cut using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. The layout for this card came at this point and my decision to therefore add some Pool Party ink to the background of each image. This was faded out using the Colour Lifter Pen.
Embossing folders are the perfect tool to add detail without too much clutter to a card. It had to be the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder in this case.
Adhering the rectangles in a haphazard way, the smaller raised on dimensional, I knew my sentiment needed to be dead centre.
To avoid blocking out a lot of the images in the background, I stamped my sentiment and spent time fussy cutting with paper snips. Skinny letters required half cut mini Dimensionals to adhere this once complete. I placed this sentiment in such a way that it gave the appearance of the words coming from the mouth of the tortoise.
A few scattered embellishments for that touch of sparkle and my card was complete.
