Hello crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season. For me, these holidays were a blessing – not only to be able to spend time with family, but to enjoy more crafty time in my happy place.
Today, I’m delighted to share with you an easy card to make using Simon Hurley’s Christmas Silhouettes stamp set and Stitched Snowflakes background stamp. I also used two color combos from Simon Hurley’s ink collection. I hope you have fun learning from this tutorial!
Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½” x 11” cardstock at 5½” and then score at 4¼”. Cut another piece measuring 4” x 5¼.”
Step 2: On the 4” x 5” cardstock panel, color blend the background with Midnight Snack and Crown Me inks from Simon Hurley. Then heat emboss the snowman from the Christmas Silhouettes Stamp Set with Embossing Powder Super Fine White.
Step 3: Peel apart snowflakes from Simon Hurley create. Background Stamp Stitched Snowflakes and mount to Simon Hurley create. Acrylic Stamping Block. Stamp images with Emboss It Ink Pad Clear and heat emboss using Embossing Powder Silver.
Step 4: Use the Liquid Pearls – Onyx Pearl, Orange Blossom, Carnation Red, Key Lime, and Robin’s Egg – to add accents to the snowman from the Christmas Silhouettes stamp set.
Step 5: Tape the front panel using White Foam Tape and glue it to the card base.
Step 6: Heat emboss sentiment from the Christmas Silhouettes stamp set using Emboss It Ink Pad Clear, Embossing Powder Super Fine White, and the Ranger Heat It Craft Tool.
Step 7: Trim sentiment and place it with Letter It Clear Foam Roll Tape and secure it to the front panel.
