Our challenge this week at the SweetSassyDivaDT was to make a Christmas card using the Scotch Post-It Paper. I made this Oscar the Grouch Christmas card to give to one of my cousins (she loves Oscar).
Black textured cardstock
White Post-it paper
Crimson Post-it paper
Lime Post-it paper
Cocoa Post-it paper
Silver ink pad
Gold Adirondack Mixatives Alcohol ink (Tim Holtz)
6.5 x 5 inch white card
Christmas patterned paper (DCWV Holiday Collection the Christmas Stack)
Small paint brush
Sesame Street Friends cart
Happy Hauntings cart
Using the Sesame Street Friends cart cut out Oscar1 at 3 inches, "blackout" with the black cardstock, "white" & "Layer 1" with the white Post-it paper, "Layer 2" with the Crimson Post-it paper, "Body" with the Lime Post-it paper, "Layer 3" with the Cocoa Post-it paper.
Using the Happy Hauntings cart cut out the "M e r r y" using the white Post-it paper at 1 inch.
Take the white garbage can and ink over it with your silver ink pad to give it the realistic look (I would have used a different color but I thought this would be a nice touch). Assemble Oscar. Adhere your patterned Christmas paper to the front of the card (make sure you have it cut a little smaller than the main card) and adhere Oscar to the bottom left of the patterned paper. Put a small amount of the gold alcohol ink on a piece of plastic or an acrylic block, using your paint brush paint on some of the gold ink over the letters from the Happy Hauntings cart. Peel and stick these letters to the top of your card (above Oscars head). With the gold ink write "Christmas" across the middle of the card just by using the tip of the ink itself. Let it dry and you're done! Hope you enjoyed my card!
