Hello crafty friends! I hope all of you are having a lovely day. Today I’m excited to share a Christmas card I made using supplies from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I loved making this card!
Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½ x 11 cardstock down to 4¼ x 11. Then score at 5½. Cut another piece measuring 4 x 5¼ to be your front panel.
Step 2: On the front panel piece, stamp the Magic Stripes background stamp using the Emboss It clear ink pad and heat emboss with Pink Tinsel embossing powder.
Step 3: Once the front panel has been heat-embossed, ink the background with a Blending Tool and the Rosy Cheeks and Piggyback ink pads.
Step 4: Splatter some gold watercolor to add extra sparkle to the background.
Step 5: On a separate piece of Stark White Cardstock, use the Mod Christmas stencil to ink the Christmas trees with Overzealous, Later Gator, and Fake Plant ink pads.
Step 6: Use the other side of the Mod Christmas stencil to add more texture to each tree with Gold Rush, Prom Queen, and Sike! Lunar Paste.
Step 7: This could have been done earlier in Step 5 or Step 6, but I forgot – Sorry! Ink the trunks for each tree then trim them out with a craft knife.
Step 8: Trim the inked treetops with scissors.
Step 9: Using White Embossing Powder on a piece of color card stock, heat emboss one of the sentiments from the Halftone Holiday stamp. Then trim the sentiment with scissors.
Step 10: Add foam adhesive to the Christmas trees and sentiment.
Step 11: Glue the front panel piece to the card base and the trees and sentiment.
Step 12: Add more texture to the trees using Stickles and Liquid Pearls.
Step 13: Pair this Christmas card with a matching envelope and it is ready to be sent to a loved one this holiday season!
