12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 - Sweet Holidays Mini Circle Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'm continuing with my 12 Days of Christmas Series. Today is 5th Day of day of my series.

Due to some important private stuff I had to finish, I took again a short break from sharing my series... This series is really not working as I planed, but I'm determined to finish sharing what I planned. :o)

By now, I only had giveaways and I Love Math Challenge #18 that I incorporated in this series. If you like, you can check all posts I shared by now here, or following these links:

There is still some time left to join the Day 4 Giveaway, as well as I Love Math Challenge #18 (Day 3). :o)

I'm continuing my 12 Days of Christmas Series with a card: Sweet Holidays Mini Circle CardIt was my spotlight project for Jane's Doodles on Tuesday, November 27th, 2020I didn't share it here on my blog earlier because I wanted to share it in series I planned prior Christmas, but that also didn't work as I planned (I wrote about it here).

To make this card I used stamps from two SUPER CUTE Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Holiday Sweets' and 'Warm and Cozy'. ♥

How I made my card....

First I created a background panel. I randomly stamped candy canes and candies on a Kraft paper in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. Then I die cut a wonky stitched circle from the paper and heat embossed a sentiment in white on it.

Then I splattered the panel with a white tempera color mixed with a bit of water and left the panel to dry on air.

Next up was card base. I cut two circles from a white cardstock paper and glued them together on the top. Then I glued the panel on the circle card base.

Next up was an image. I stamped an adorable gingerbread man on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique with a Distress Ink Ground Espresso. After drying, I fussy cut the gingerbread man and traced edges with a black marker.

I stamped another gingerbread man on a white cardstock paper, colored him with a grey marker and fussy cut him, leaving white thin border around him. Then I glued the watercolored gingerbread man over the grey one.

You know I love dimension on my cards. I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the gingerbread man and glued him on the card.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights on the gingerbread man using a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)

I love how my card turned out. :o)
