Penny Black Jolly Friends Card – 2 Crafty Little Sisters

Penny Black Jolly Friends Card - 2 Crafty Little Sisters

Winter is upon us here in Minnesota so it felt like a good time to make a nice wintery note card.  I tend to hibernate in the cold weather so it’s nice to keep in touch with friends through cards.  I love using watercolor pencils to color in my stamps.  You can find a video on the technique I use at the end of this post.

Penny Black Jolly Friends Card Tutorial

I started with a piece of  black card stock, 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half to make a flip up card base.

Next I took a piece of white card stock 5-1/4″ x 4″ and put it through my Sizzix Bigshot using my snowflake scroll embossing folder.

I flipped it over and drew a line on the back 3/4″ in from the scrolled edge.

Then cut along the line.

I adhered the small piece onto the card back centered as if it was a full piece.Penny Black Jolly Friends Card - 2 Crafty Little Sisters
I cut a piece of black cardstock 3-6/16″ x 4-10/16″ and adhered it to the card leaving the right side and bottom even with the white pieced edges.

I adhered the other embossed piece over this matching up the edges to the right and bottom sides of the black piece.

Then I took some  white cardstock and stamped the design onto it using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.

The design was made from Penny Black Jolly Friends and colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral oil.

Here are the items we use for the colored pencil technique:
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils, Soft Core, 72 Count
Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits Bottle, 4.2oz
Blending Tortillions (Dozen) Small

The technique for coloring the image can be seen in this video.

I cut the finished design to 2-14/16″ x 4″.

I cut a piece of black cardstock 3″ x 4-1/8″ and adhered it to the back lining it up even with the right and bottom edges.

Adhere the colored piece to the front of the card lining up the right and bottom edges with the previous piece.

Next I took a piece of black card stock and put it through my Sizzix Bigshot using my Paper Smooches Lets Chill die set.
