Instructions

Hi crafty friends! I’m so excited to share with you this wintery card I made using stamps and dies from Simon Hurley. I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I enjoyed making the card! 

 

Simon Hurley Season Tweetings Card by Lieschen Harshbarger Step 1

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: Use the Woodgrain background stamp with Cookie Dough, Grrr!, and Weeping Willow to stamp the front panel piece. Then use the mini ink blending tool with the Weeping Willow ink to ink around the edges.

Step 7: Use the coordinating dies for the bird image to do a partial die cut using a die cutting machine. Then trim off the leftover card stock so you have a snowy hill.
