Perfect Pearls Christmas Card by Kelli Cool

Hey y’all! Kelli here with an easy tutorial on Perfect Pearls. These Perfect Pearls are so beautiful and can be used as the main focus or as a nice addition to your projects. So shimmery and fabulous, I love them! 

Step 1: Cut gray cardstock slightly larger than your background stamp, in my case I used the Tim Holtz Cling Mount Stamps – Holiday Knits. Place your background stamp over your cardstock on the stamping platform. (You can use an acrylic block but I find it’s easier to use a stamping platform so you can double up on the Perfect Medium.) 

  

Step 2: Close the stamping platform and open back up so the rubber side is up. Ink up the rubber side of the stamp with the Ranger Perfect Medium Pad.

  

Step 3: After inking up the rubber side, close the stamping platform and press down so as to cover the whole cardstock with the Perfect Medium. When you open, you will be able to see where the Perfect Medium adhered to the cardstock. Repeat step if you miss any spots.

Step 4: Next, time to get out your brush and Perfect Pearls in the color of your choice, mine was Mint. 

Step 5: Place your Ranger Dusting Brush, in the Perfect Pearls to pick up just a little of the pigment. Remember it doesn’t take much. A little goes a long way with these! 

Step 6: Pounce the brush on the cardstock and move the pearls around in a circular motion. 

Step 7: Cover the whole stamped area with the Perfect Pearls. Gently swipe a dry sweeping pad over the whole page (and your work area!) to pick up the excess pigment. 

Step 8: Repeat Steps 1 through 8 for the sentiment. For this card, I used the Tim Holtz Doodle Greetings #1. 

Step 9: Trim the sentiment down to your desired size and jazz up with Ranger Stickles, Glossy Accents, and some jewels. 

Step 10: Trim the background down to desired size and dress up with ribbon, sequins, Liquid Pearls, and Stickles. Place sentiment on top with foam tape and voila! You’ve got yourself a stylish Christmas card! Before you mail this beauty out, be sure to spray a light mist of water. This will help to set the Perfect Pearls.
