Pink Christmas cards – re-inkers for Faux watercolouring

We’re in November already, so I hope you well on you’re way to making Christmas cards! Today I’ve got plenty of inspiration using a new release from Catherine Pooler Designs: Winter Wonders. I cannot resist a snowflake when it comes to card making, and I think the snowflake dies in the Winter Frames Slimline die-set are a beautiful size for card making. I got creative with a colour scheme inspired by the Touch of Frost Paper Pack to add a little pink to my card and used my re-inkers for faux watercolouring.

re-inkers for faux watercolouring: creating backgrounds

Start off by adding clean water to 4 pieces of watercolour cardstock. Next, add drops of the following inks with your re-inkers to an acrylic block:

Star to add one colour to each watercolour card panel. You don’t need to create a smooth look, some variation in colour will give interest later on. Allow these to dry, and once dry adhere the Pink Champagne panel down onto a white card base. In addition, die-cut and layer up 3 of the Frame die from the Notecard Frame & Tag set, adhering this to the card base at a skew.  

re-inkers for faux watercolouring: creating the snowflakes

Using the three other panels for Cove Blue, Tranquil and Hot Tub use the two snowflake dies from the Winter Frames Slimline die-set to create multiple snowflakes. Next, start adding the snowflakes onto the card, layering on top of each other for variation and allow some to sit over the top of the frame. 

For the sentiment, heat emboss in gold the script ‘Greetings’ from the Cheerful Greetings stamp set and use the coordinating die to cut this out. In addition, stamp in Twilight ink, a couple of the small sentiments from the stamp set and trim these down before adding to the card. 

Lastly, embellish with some sequins from the Portland Sequin Mix and Pierre Sequin mix to add a little sparkle.
