For this month's theme Iv'e made a Christmas card with a difference - Iv'e used an MDF frame from Imagination Crafts for the card itself and MDF shapes for the main feature embellishment.
To make the Card I first painted the back and front of the frame with white acrylic paint then tinted the edges with a blue dye inkpad. I also tinted a piece of white cardstock with the blue inkpad and stamped the holly stamp taken from the Decoupage stamp set "Flowers" all over the card with second generation stamped images. I then stamped "Merry Christmas" in black ink in the centre. This was then stuck to the back frame.
To add decoration to the edges of the frame card I stamped the swirls stamp along each edge to create depth. I die-cut some swirls and coloured them with blue and gold mica powders then stuck them to the front. The back and front of the frame were stuck together using a piece of cardstock as the spine, which I stamped again with the swirls and coloured with the blue ink to match the w3hole piece.
I then melted some silver embossing powder in a Melt Pot and poured this over the MDF Candle and whilst still hot, stamped into the image with the swirls stamp. I then added mica powders to the embossed surface to colour the candle and give it a gold/yellow flame. Tinsel Snowflakes were added for decoration and dots around the apeture of the front frame to highlight the message inside.
