Welcome back! Happy April! It's a new month and a new challenge over at Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge! This month Thermoweb is our sponsor! Play along with us for a chance to win a $30 gift code to Thermoweb!
The challenge is Rainbows (and Coffee of course!) Just create a Christmas card that includes Coffee and some Rainbow! Here's how I was inspired:
Did you know that Thermoweb has Toner Card Fronts?? I foiled one of the super cute rainbow card fronts and die cut the coffee cup from it. I decided to use a green sparkly Deco Foil for my Christmas Card. Did you also know that if you like to use acrylic paint with your gel press to make backgrounds, you can also foil those by layering foil and running it through your Minc or laminator. I die cut my poinsettias from a foiled gel print. The coverage isn't complete, so you want to use it when you don't care that you get a solid transfer and these flowers were perfect for that! I used a red gel print along with the red foil. I created a green panel as well and cut one set of poinsettias from that. These are my favorite poinsettia dies from Rubbernecker Stamps but used the poinsettia centers from these also very lovely poinsettia dies from A Jillian Vance Design cause I think they're cool. I'll be playing with foil on gel prints this month quite a bit so be sure to stop by! And if you would like to see these in full sparkle, I have a video below!
I finished this one off with the Jolly word die from Lil' Inker (still miss them) and my all time favorite steam from A Jillian Vance Design!
That's me for today! Be sure to head on over to the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge Blog and see what everyone else has created too! I can't wait to see what you create! And huge thanks to Thermoweb for being our sponsor this month!
