Special Delivery

Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Special Delivery stamp set. This is an oldie but goodie! This card came together so quickly and could easily be mass produced for the holidays. I never seem to have enough Christmas cards made when I need them! 

I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I had a basic panel cut out of white cardstock which I glued some strips to and cut out with a stitched rectangle die. I used a larger die to cut out the red background panel. When I have this card again, I would platter my gold paint before adhering the white panel to the red and the images on top. The gold splatter was a last minute decision which I love! I white heat embossed a sentiment from the set from a scrap of the matching red paper. 

Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I used a sentiment and images from the Special Delivery stamp set. 

I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of smooth, white cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. 

I finished off my images using a black glaze pen for the eyes and white pen to add some accents. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I added some sparkle glaze to Santa’s hat and gold Nuvo Drops to the elf hat. I do this last so I don’t smudge anything! I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop
