The challenge for Day 3 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is ‘Rockin’ Around’.
The Rocking Horse Bundle is such an obvious choice for the theme, ‘Rockin’ Around’. I actually bought this bundle to use for new baby cards, however it is a Christmas bundle.
As this stamp set is photopolymer, it’s easy to curve the sentiment. First I die cut a circle of Basic White card stock and then placed my acrylic block over the area where I wanted to stamp. Then I adhered the stamp on top of the block, lining up the curve of the sentiment with the curve of the circle.
I inked up the sentiment with Early Espresso Ink and stamped it onto the deckled circle.
The rocking horse was stamped onto a sheet of the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper, coloured with Read Red and Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends and die cut, before I fussy cut the rocker off the bottom.
I replace the rocker using the ‘rocker base’ die from the Rocking Horse dies which was die cut from another sheet of One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.
The Christmas tree fronds are made using the Joy of Noel dies and the Christmas Pinecone dies, die cut from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock.
The tiny Christmas holly dies are from the Rocking horse dies, die cut in Real Red and Mossy Meadow.
If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another card to share with you for Day 4 of the 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge.
Wherever you are in the world, keep on crafting xxx
