Make a Card week @ Tando

Hi folks, welcome to this weeks creation for Tando. The theme is 'Make a Card'.

As we are all very aware, Christmas is just around the corner and yes, I've failed miserably at sticking to one of my New Years Resolutions which was to start making Christmas cards early in the year. OOOppppppssss... I'm ashamed to say this is my first official card for Christmas.
But anyway, I'm glad to say I'm very happy with it. 

Here is my first official Christmas card and my creation for Tando...

I started with a 6 x 6 inch piece of Anna Marie Designs white super smooth piece of card.

I took the Tando Joined Snowflakes mask and laid it at an angle over the bottom of the card, then inked through Evergreen Bough Distress Ink with a Inkylicious Ink Duster brush. 

I randomly stamped sections of one of the stamps from Andy Skinner's Industrial Stamps set from Stampendous with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.
I then used the Bubbles mask from Andy Skinner and used DecoArt White Modeling Paste in random areas over the top of the Joined Snowflakes and Industrial stamping. I rubbed Imagination Crafts Cobalt Alchemy Wax just over the bubbles.

I took the Tando Mini's Music and painted them with white gesso. When they were dry I gently rubbed over Imagination Crafts Perido Alchemy Wax to give it a shimmer. 

I then used the Tando Mini's Reindeers and painted them with DecoArt English Red Oxide. I finished them with a touch of Inca Gold Alchemy Wax.

To finish the card, I stamped the Jingle Bells sentiment from Creative Expression Circle Sentiments Set on to a separate piece of card. Then cut it out and roughed up the edges with a pair of scissors. I lightly inked the sentiment with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and inked the edges darker and adhered with a foam pad. 

Here is everything I used...
