MC Nov/13 - Wouters - Xmas Cards



ID: MC Nov/13 - Wouters Blocks - Merry Xmas

I decided to make some samples of very easy Xmas cards for a class I'll be teaching in a couple weeks to kids between the ages of 9 & 12 - Beats me what possessed me to accept this assignment... I'll be teaching some basic calligraphy using a Parallel pen and I figured the Wouters font I created would work well for them. We'll see.

All 3 cards are 5" x 6.5" and calligraphy done with a 3.8m pen

ID: MC Nov/13 Wouters Boot - Holiday Wishes
The first card I made is the block letter style, boxes outlined with a Zig Writer, colored in with Prisma colored pencils. The small holly leaves were stamped with Distress "Pine Needles" and the berries colored. The Mistletoe bouquet & border pieces were stamped with Versafine Black Onyx. All stamps on this card are from Flourishes "Doves & Holly" & "Meet Me Under the Mistletoe".

The Cowboy boat is the next card I made stamping the boot (Flourishes "Cowboy Christmas") with the black and coloring in with the Prisma colored pencils. I colored the word "Holiday" using a white pencil first and then over coloring with a red. The doodles were done with the white colored pencil. As a final touch, added a red colored pencil border.

The last card, I repeatedly stamped the large snowflake (Bo Bunny) with Distress "Tumbled Glass". Wrote in my word and added some Viva Silver Glitter Pen dots on the diamonds. Drew in the blue border using a Super Ferby Metallic blue pencil. Die cut the snowflake, glittered it and adhered it to the card.
