Mixed Media Christmas Cards by Steph

Posted on December 17 2018

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with some fun mixed media Christmas cards using the Jolly Foiled Paper Variety Pack, stencils and paints.  If you haven't used Rinea Foiled Papers to create mixed media effects, you will be amazed at how sturdy the foils are.

 Mixed Media Christmas Cards

From the Jolly Foiled Paper Variety Pack, I used Starstruck Silver, Glossy Ruby/Gold, Glossy Silver/Gold, and Glossy Emerald/Gold.  I used Memory Box ornament dies.  They come with both the base layer die and the detailed top layer die, and when combined, they create amazing ornaments.

Using a stencil from Expressions Craft, I created two different backgrounds.

On the Starstruck Silver Foil, I used gray paint randomly through the stencil.  I did not want full coverage so I randomly added gray paint.

Using the same stencil, I created a very different effect on the Glossy Ruby/Gold panel by spritzing Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist through the stencil.

I matted the Starstruck Silver panel with the reverse side of the Glossy Ruby/Gold foil.  To create the ornaments, I layered the Glossy Gold outline atop the Glossy Ruby base using On Point Glue.  I adhered them to the silver panel with foam adhesives for dimension.  A strip of Glossy Gold was added across the top of the card to anchor them to the card.  The sentiment from Joy Clair Stamps was stamped on a white oval, matted with Glossy Ruby/Gold foil and adhered to the card amongst the ornaments. The panel was then added to a panel of white before being adhered to a black card.

To create the other set of ornaments,  I layered the Glossy Silver outline atop the Glossy Gold base using On Point Glue.  I adhered them to the stenciled Glossy Ruby panel with foam adhesives for dimension.  A strip of Glossy Gold was added across the top of the card to anchor them to the card.  The sentiment from Joy Clair Stamps was stamped on a white oval, matted with Glossy Gold and adhered to the card amongst the ornaments. The panel was then added to a Glossy Emerald/Gold panel before being adhered to a white card.

These ornaments are quite delicate and the foils make lovely ornaments.  Adhered to stenciled backgrounds, the ornaments really stand out.
Thanks for stopping by.
