Namasleigh Postage Card

Hi friends!

It's Miki here, from and as promised last week, today I am back with a new project for my GSD Guest Design Role and this time I'm sharing with you a Christmas card using the Namasleigh stamp set

To find out how I made this card, please keep reading.

I started by focusing on the background - it was so easy! I took a stencil and inked it up with the Festive Berries Distress Oxide. I then cut it down to 3.75"x5" and adhered it to an A2 card base using foam tape.

Then, I moved on to the images. I first used three nesting postage dies to die cut them from white cardstock. For this card I used three images from the Namasleigh stamp set. I stamped the santa on the largest of the postage die cuts and colored him in. For added details I used a white gel pen for highlights. The smallest postage die cut I turned into a small scene. I first stamped the cute chick and created a mask for it and then I stamped the trees "behind" him. I colored them both, added some white highlights and a bit of shadow underneath the trees.

The sentiment went on the middle-size postage die cut and I chose to emboss that in black to make it stand out even more.

To finish the card I simply layered the three postage die cuts on my card using foam tape for added dimension and that was it. I think this card is super cute and funny and the sentiment is a perfect match!

I hope you like it and thanks so much for tuning in again!

Sending crafty hugs,
