Alcohol Ink Christmas Cards
These are the last two cards I made with the panels I previously created…
As mentioned in the previous post, I used Ranger Glossy Card Stock along with Ranger alcohol inks (Caramel, Latte, Ginger, Currant, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, and Gold Mixative) and Alcohol Ink Blending Solution for these cards as well.
I used a leaf stamp to add texture to the cream panel behind the deer die cut and also debossed a few lines with a score board and stylus. The deer image was (angled and) die cut from the center of the mat panel; the hole is hidden behind the cream panel and allowed me to use the one inked panel for both parts of the card. Before adhering the deer to the card, I cut a second one from plain (heavy weight) card stock and layered the two to make the die cut thicker. Layered dies (cut from alcohol inked panels) and a single stamp were used on the second sample.
The deer is the “Merry Christmas Deer” from Gina Marie Designs (retired?). The Joy stamp is part of the Penny Black “Wonder Collection” stamp set that was a free gift with the Papercraft Essentials Magazine (issue 113) from September 2014. The background and label dies were unbranded.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!

These are so gorgeous and elegant looking. They remind me of bronze statues.
The shine of these show up so nicely in your photos. You really made great use of your backgrounds!
WOW, Lisa, you are a pro at this technique! People would pay big money for these sculptural metal works of art! You make me want to get in there and give it a go! Off to check out your previous post for more info! Thank you for the inspiration! Hugs, Darnell
