Funky Fossil Designs "Star Wreath" and "Nordic Noel" Christmas Card


I've been playing with a selection of Funky Fossil Designs products to make this card using kraft card stock.

I die cut a circle of craft card stock.  I used a foam blender and white Pan Pastel and blended the middle of the card, making it slightly lighter in colour.  I tapped a white Posca Pen over the surface, creating light splatters to replicate distant stars.

Using white card and the Funky Fossil Designs "Star Wreath die" and ran it through the Big Shot.  I adhered the die cut on to the kraft circle, adding a selection of the stars that come as part of the die cut. I then glued the circle on to white card and then on to a kraft card blank.

On an off-cut of white card stock, I stamped the two gnomes, which are part of the Funky Fossil "Nordic Noel" stamp set, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I then immediately sprinkled the stamped area with Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

I coloured the gnomes using an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks (Weathered Wood, Mowed Lawn, Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick) applied with a paint brush. I then fussy cut the gnomes and adhered into position over the wreath.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink, I stamped the "Gnome For Christmas" sentiment, which is also part of the Funky Fossil "Nordic Noel" stamp set.
