Floating Watercolored Christmas Ornament Card

Hello everyone… Today I am sharing another Christmas card I made with a fun, interactive, floating element on it with stamping, die-cutting, heat-embossing, and watercoloring.

The other day, I found a YouTube tutorial how to make this fun floating card (you can watch it here). This is a new technique for me to try and I love it.

First step is to create window. I cut out the window on the card base and then cut out another one out the patterned paper with the same die. I set them aside for now to work on the floating ornament.

I love the new Christmas Ornament stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I picked one of the vintage ornament stamps to use on my card today. Using my MISTI tool, I did the double-stamping and heat-embossing with the ornament stamp to get the bold gold lines for watercoloring.

I used Spectrum Noir – Aqua Markers to color it and then adding some more pearl watercolor paint using Pearlescents paint to give the extra pearly and shiny on it. I think that what ornament is, shiny!

Using the matching ornament die, I die-cut the watercolored ornament and then I die cut it again with just a white cardstock for the backing.

Now that I had all the pieces, I essambled the card by following the video tutorial. I happened to have the Tombow Xtreme adhesive, but if you don’t you can use any strong glue for the floating part just to make sure that it holds the element good in the center of the window.

I also stamped a sentiment inside the card. To make sure inside sentiment is in the center of the floating element when you close the card, you can close the card and then using pencil  you can trace the element on the inside card base, then stamp the sentiment in the middle of traced image. Erase the pencil when your stamped sentiment dry so won’s smudge.

That’s my card today and I hope it give you some more inspiration to create Holiday card today. And here is the full supply list I used on my card:

THANK YOU so much for stopping by and have a fabulous blessed day!
