Small but Beautiful

Hello,   Kay M here and I'm sharing a card I've made with the fabulous new Christmas Wreath stamp set.   The wreath is a great size and looks wonderful when filling a square card but I wanted to see it what it would look like on shrink film.  I wasn't disappointed - loved it and decided to use it as a main image for a card.

The wreath was stamped with a grey StazOn ink onto Matte Shrink Film from GrafixArt and coloured in with colouring pencils, being careful not to add too much colour as it intensifies as it shrinks.   I used a heat tool to shrink but an oven could also be used- it's less scary!   The sentiment was stamped, cut out and shrunk too.

The background was stamped using the snowflakes from theChristmas Wreath set  with Snow White Metallic paint, when dry, Festive Berries Distress ink was sponged over.  The shrunk wreath was backed with a sheet of  Dura-Lar Matte, from GrafixArt, stamped using one of my favourite Christmas stamps- Snowflake Lace, with FlitterGlu and covered with Porcelain Luscious Powders.  I attached this to the background with a little spray adhesive.  Both these stamps look wonderful together.  

To finish the card the wreath and sentiment attached with silicon glue.    

This card could be also be a winter birthday card with a change of sentiment.

Hope you have enjoyed this project.

Take care,  Kay M x
