Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #267

Hello there everyone,

I am participating today in the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge #267 - Assembly Line Card-Making. 

I had not begun any of my Christmas cards as yet so this was just the project that I needed to get me moving.

I will also apologize right now for the quality of the photos. I took them at night and the lighting was far from ideal. However, I am going to be out of town so needed to get these done tonight so really had no choice.

I chose to keep the design very simple and it is all just stamping with no die cuts this time.

The white card is roughly 4 1/2" by 5". I cut the stamping layer just a wee bit smaller. When I finished up the stamping I mounted it on the card using the same fun foam as in the video. It works just great.

I chose to use three Papertrey Ink stamp sets, Love Lives Here Holiday, Boards and Beams and Home for the Holidays.

I stamped the large house from Boards and Beams in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then added a section of fence from Home for the Holidays on either side. I also stamped the wee little wreath on the front door.

Above the house I used the evergreen garland from Love Lives Here Holiday which I stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves. I added the small heart in Memento Rhubarb Stalk and then also added a small hanging bunch of evergreen with another heart. I absolutely love that garland and I use it a great deal. That is one of my very favourite stamp sets from Papertrey Ink.

To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment from Love Lives Here Holiday in the same Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink.

To get accurate placement of the house, fences and sentiment, I used my brand new MISTI which I simply love. I stamped the garland and hearts using a block.

Lastly I coloured in the teeny tiny little garland on the fences and the wreath on the door with Copics, YG67 - Moss and R39 - Garnet.

So there you have it. I have made 4 cards and it is a start on the Christmas cards. Great idea for a challenge to get us all moving.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me today. Please do leave me your comments as I read every one of them and really appreciate you taking the time. Have a great day. Cheers.
