Balcony Christmas Card with Anet

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. I created a magical Christmas Balcony Front Card using the Golden Age Alcohol Inks and Deck The Halls Collection from Couture Creations. My video tutorial will show you how to adhere vellum to cardstock ~ https://youtu.be/oQ4M-eUCgNA.

Are you ready to learn how to effortlessly adhere vellum to cardstock using Diecut’N Bond? I first started with the vellum background and lay down Alcohol Ink Blending Solution in the middle of the Vellum.

I then added the following Couture Creations Alcohol Inks and moved it around with an alcohol ink blower: Alcohol Ink Golden Age Onyx / Alcohol Ink Golden Age Plum / Alcohol Ink Golden Age Snow / Alcohol Ink Golden Age Cappuccino / Alcohol Ink Metallic Alloy Ice Blue By adding the blending solution and golden age alcohol inks in the middle of the vellum it did not curled up at all.

I then used Alcohol Lift-Ink with a stencil to create a snowflake ghost effect on the alcohol ink background. I adhered the golden age alcohol ink vellum background on the Balcony Front Card I created.
