Christmas cards and ATCs by Preety Dutt

Hi Dear Crafty Friends 🙂
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Firstly, I’d like to give a
big thanks to Khyati for inviting me to guest design. I enjoyed playing with
the cute Christmas supplies. If you’d like to see more of my crafty ideas and
projects, these are my social media links.
Since it is the holiday season,
I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year well in
advance.
For today, I’ve created 5 cards
and a set of 4 mixed media atcs for the holidays

Card 1

For this card, I stamped the adorable bear &
sentiment from the CrafTangles BearingGifts Stamp onto CansonWatercolor Paper & then did watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real BrushMarkers. I’ve matted the card panel with a stitched rectangle die cut, cut from
CrafTangles Rich Red Cardstock which
is the perfect color for Christmassy creations

Card 2
For this card, I
wanted to create a night time snowfall scene, so I used the CrafTangles Skyline Stencil which has
detachable pieces that can be used as masks. So I used the skyline mask to mask
off the black cardstock and sponged on picket fence distress ink onto the rest
of the cardstock. Then I added the windows with a white sharpie. And then to
create the snowfall, I applied White Gesso through the CrafTangles Speckles Stencil. The sentiment was stamped from the CrafTangles Seasons Greeting Stamp. I
added a few silver star sequins to finish the card.

Card 3
For this card, the
focal element is the cute reindeer, I sponged it on using Black Soot distressink, a sponge dauber and CrafTanglesChristmas Elements stencil. The sentiment is from the CrafTangles Seasons Greeting Stamp. CrafTangles Moss Green Cardstock was used to create the mat. For
embellishment, I added a little silver bow and red pearl to the neck of the
reindeer.

Card 4
For this card,
the soft green background was created by sponging on the christmassy images
from the CrafTangles ChristmasBackground Stencil using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide. The sentiment
was stamped from the CrafTangles SeasonsGreeting Stamp. I used a cute little penguin sticker as the focal element
of this card. The bright green pop in the card is from CrafTangles Sap Green Cardstock.

Card 5
For this card, CrafTangles Ruby Red Cardstock was used
to die cut the main card panel. The sentiment is from the CrafTangles Seasons Greeting Stamp. I used a glittery foam dove as
the focal element and the wreath is a die cut, I used the vibrant CrafTangles Sap Green Cardstock to die
cut the wreath & then embellished it with silver sequins.

Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards or ATCs
The organic
looking backgrounds for these ATCs were created using Sprays and Pigment
Powders. The sentiments were stamped using CrafTanglesSeasons Greeting Stamp & the focal elements were sponged on using
distress oxides through the CrafTanglesChristmas Elements Stencil. The gifts in one of the atcs were stamped using
the CrafTangles Bearing Gifts Stamp.
Snow was added using white gesso and the CrafTanglesSpeckles Stencil. The edges of 2 of the atcs were deckled and the edges of
all the atcs were darkened & distressed with black soot distress ink. Details
were added with silver stickes, antique gold perfect pearls, glitter and a
white sharpie pen. In the end, the panels were adhered to white atc sized bases
(2.5 by 3.5 inches) to give a finished look.
