ID: MC Nov/15 - Easel - Encaustic Pines - ECD Merry Christmas - It Is Christmas card
size: 7"w x 5"h (Easel closed)

Created: November 12, 2015

Love doing easel cards (my favorite style) and love doing encaustic painting...

The rubber stamp quote is by Quietfire Design  and the "Merry Christmas" from Elizabeth Craft Designs also available on Quietfire Design HERE

("It Is Christmas..."); 


Scored and folded my pink textured cardstock. Cut a lighter pink slightly smaller top layer and adhered.

I created my encaustic pines using my electric fry pan, Enkaustikos Hot Sticks (you can use Crayolla crayons to get the same effect), and the smooth side of rice paper. Trimmed down and adhered to light pink layer.

Adhered pink/silver variegated Sari ribbon on the left and bottom edges.

Die cut the ornament (Elizabeth Craft Designs) from the light pink cardstock. Inking the filigree part with Versafine "Toffee" and embossed using Hot Stuff "Kettle Copper" embossing powder. Adhered to the solid layer and then used a Quickie glue pen to selectively glue areas sprinkling with "Warm Diamonds"  and "Peony Pink" silk microfine glitter. Tied some Sari ribbon to the ornament and adhered to pine branch.

Die cut the "Merry Christmas" from a white layer and a pink layer. Applied Versamark to the white layer and embossed with Hot Stuff "Soft Fallen Snow", repeating the process to get a thick layer. Adhered the two layers together slightly offset then on to the card.

Added green and pink holographic dots.



On the floor: Stamped the pine branch (Old Island Rubber Stamps) using Versafine Black Onyx and embossing with Distress "Pine Needles" embossing powder.

Created an eCut file of the little ornament (Flourishes "Holiday Sparkle" set), cut, stamped with the toffee and embossed with the copper embossing powder. Adhered to pine branch adding little pink holographic dots.

Stamped the quote using the black on white cardstock and clear embossed. trimmed down and layered to pink cardstock and adhered to card floor using 3D foam tape to act as stopper. Added some pink holographic dots.
