Hey crafty friend, it's Amanda from Pear Blossom Press here with a pair of Christmas cards featuring images from I Need Some Space. Aren't they fun? I knew as soon as I saw this set that I wanted to put the angel on top of a Christmas tree. Once I got started, I decided to put the police box on top of another tree and I thought it would be fun if that tree was blue.
For both cards, I started by creating galaxy backgrounds. I made sure to add a healthy dose of shimmer spray over the backgrounds so they would have a nice bit of shine to them. While those were drying, I stamped, embossed, and Copic colored my images, then added a coat of Aqua Shimmer on top. My ScanNCut helped me fussy cut them out, without any border. I die cut a bunch of pine branches from blue and green paper. I also cut out a pair of bows and the word Christmas from glossy white paper.
For the angel card, I stamped and embossed the top portion of the sentiment onto vellum. I performed a little stamp surgery on sentiments from Llama Get This Straight and Time Traveler (retired) for it. Then I glued the die cut word underneath and wrapped the vellum around the galaxy that had the green pine branches glued on. I glued that to a black card base and popped the angel up with foam tape. A few sequins and the bow finish it off nicely.
For the police box card, I did basically the same thing, but I used the blue pine branches to form the tree top. I didn't have a stamp that says time, so I die cut the letters to spell everything out.
I can't decide which card I actually like better. Which is your favorite? The angel was inspired by our own Christmas tree topper, which is also from the fandom. Every year, someone new notices the angel on our tree is a little more sinister looking than most. We get a kick out of shocking people. You know what they say, "the family that creeps people out together, stays together..."
Thanks for stopping by today. You can find links to the specific products I used in the sister article to this post on my blog. I'll be back soon with another fun card. Until then my friend, stay crafty...
