Hi there, and a very Happy Thanksgiving to all,
I'm here today to share my last November Reveal card using the Stella -Dear Santa Set 804. What a fun little "Stella" set for Christmas!
I started with the background, using the Spellbinders Ripples Embossing Folder - I ran red cardstock through the embossing folder and then daubed Pure Platinum embellishment mouse to the piece to accentuate the pattern (which kind of reminded me of baubles).
I built her wall with the Darice Brick Pattern embossing folder using watercolor paper (which had the texture already), then I daubed Cosmic Brown embellishment mousse over the bricks and "grouted" with the E25 Copic Marker.
The wall was layered to the red rippled background. Santa Stella was then stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, R37, C3, C5, B32, E02, E25, and 0. She was then fussy cut, along with the baubles. I added some Dimensional Glue to all of the white trim around her hat, cuffs and skirt and applied Twinkling Clouds. This was set aside to dry.
I applied a little Nuvo glue with the fine tip pen and then added some Blissful Blue Sparkle N Soft to Stella's hair.
Adding a little of the Nuvo Fine Tipped Glue Pen to the top of the baubles and applied Reflection Velvet Glitter. When this was dry, I covered the colored part of the baubles with Dimensional Glue and they were set aside to dry.
Dimensional Glue was also applied to her glasses and the new Nuvo Ruby Slipper Glitter drops were used for a sparkly red pair of earrings. I cut a slit in the scroll, so that the scroll would go behind the wall. Stella was then attached with Foam Squares. A piece of silver thread was tied with three little bows and then the shiny baubles were stuck down with glue dots and Foam Squares.
The card front was layered to a white card base, which was edged with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and then the sticky adhesive was covered with the new Merlot Velvet Glitter.
That finishes off my card for today. Hope you've enjoyed my share today and that you're having or have had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Time to get to those Christmas cards now!
