Merry Little Christmas Organic Card┃Yasmin Diaz

Happy Friday, Pinkfresh friends! Yasmin here sharing with you a “Organic Christmas” card made using Merry Little Christmas Cling Stamp. Along with this whimsical stamp set, I’ve also used Pinkfresh Watercolor Collection. So, without further ado let’s jump right into the step by step on how I made it.

To begin with, I started by placing inside my MISTI stamping tool a Fabriano watercolor paper sheet. Then right after, I’ve gone ahead to place over it the Merry Little Christmas Cling Stamp.

Therefore, after I’ve had line up the paper with the stamp, I’ve gone ahead to get the image the background stamp over the card watercolor paper using Misty Coast Ink for a no-line water-coloring look.

Moving along, after I’ve had stamped the card panel, I’ve gone ahead to remove it from the stamping tool but, I kept the background stamp in place as, I was going to return and re-stamp the sentiment.

Thus, for the water-coloring, I’ve gone ahead to watercolor each image using a mix of color which, I’ve had previously mixed on my mixing palette using a combination of Pinkfresh Watercolor Collection along with other watercolors from my stash to customize my very own colors.

With that said, after I’ve finished water-coloring the stamped images, I’ve gone ahead to set the card panel aside to let it dry and, once it was completely dry, I’ve gone ahead to place it back inside the stamping tool, and as soon as I was sure that was back in place, I’ve gone ahead to pop out the frame from the stamp as I was only going to get heat embossed the sentiment so therefore, after I’ve had gold heat embossing the sentiment, I’ve gone ahead to trim down the edges of the card panel slightly smaller than the card base, and then I’ve gone ahead to mount the card panel with craft foam and double-sided tape to an A2 top folding off white card base adding that way a little bit of dimension.

Last but not least, I’ve added gold accents to the birds, flowers, snowflakes and little dots using metallic gold watercolor and a 0000-watercolor brush. As well as white highlights to the berries and leaves. Finally, to finish the card off, I’ve gone ahead to glue down here and there with liquid glue jewels from the Essentials: Jewel Mix set to add an extra sparkly look. With that being said, thank you for stopping by we hope you have enjoyed reading the step by step on how I’ve created this “Organic Christmas” card showcasing this beautiful and whimsical background stamp by Pinkfresh.

While I thought this stamp was nice I wasn’t really drawn to it. That is, until I saw your card! It is so beautiful! The addition of the gold really makes the card. Your water colouring is so pretty. I may have to but this stamp after all. Well played PinkFresh!!
