Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a really warm and cozy holiday card. To make it, I used the beautiful Warm Cocoa Wishes stamp set from the latest release.
Before I stamped anything, I took the images I wanted and placed them on the card without any ink. This way I was able to arrange everything and make sure the composition was just right.
Once I was happy with the placement, I stamped everything in black ink.
For the coloring, I wanted to keep everything simple. So I went with a modern, flat color approach. I used Nuvo alcohol markers in warm shades. More specifically the colors I used were: 473.381, 393, 475, 463, 495, 472, 391, 389, 449, 497, 377. I only added a little bit of shading in the mug and the face of the girl.
To make my background more exciting I used a light cream marker and doodled some stripes behind all the stamped images. I also added a couple more details by with Nuvo Jewel drops over the hearts, leaf and bow.
The finishing touch was to add a few white splatters around.
I really hope you enjoyed this card and it inspired you to create something beautiful today.
Until next time, happy cardmaking.
