Episode 1 of Christmas Cards with Anna!

 My YouTube is about to get a new video showing how I made my 1 st Christmas card featuring Stampin Up and my HERO product of the moment…Windsor & Newton Iridescent Medium. I’ve left a link to Amazon below if you want to try this amazing product yourself. 

As you can see on a dark background like I used, the medium gives so much sparkle and shine it’s unreal! It can also be added as a wash over translucent watercolours to give a more subtle sheen. But as it’s Christmas card season there’s never a better time for BLING!

To create my cards I used precut 5x7 white card bases and mat and layered in alternating colours from navy blue to white. I left around 1/16th of an inch frame for the white layer. 

I punched out some stars on the white top layer and saved them for another project. This punch co-ordinates with the *Stars are Shining* stamp set from Stampin up. I then painted the Iridescent medium on the navy card behind the star cut outs. I used a dry paint brush for this. Next I stuck the white layer on he navy mat with tonic studios glue runner. For the stamped sentiment I used Be Merry and Bright from the same stamp set using Paris Dusk Memento ink to match the navy blue and white theme of my card.

Mounting with again, a mat and layer effect and using foam tape I completed my card by attaching the sentiment and punching and gluing some tiny stars from navy card painted with the HERO medium and some glue to stick them on. 

Thanks for reading /watching. Be sure to say hi on social @spacecraftzhq
