Instructions

Hi crafty friends! Lieschen here bringing you another fun tutorial using products by Simon Hurley. I have enjoyed Simon’s release this month because it’s all about Christmas which is my favorite time of the year. For today’s card, I’ll be using the new Folk Art Ornaments Stamp & Die Set that include beautiful ornaments images and sentiments. I’m absolutely loving that each image and sentiment has a coordinating die! I truly hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I loved making this card.

 

Simon Hurley Warm Holiday Wishes Card 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. From the remaining extra 4¼ x 11 piece, cut it in half to make a front panel piece measuring 4¼ x 5½.

Step 3: Use the coordinating dies for the ornaments and run them through a die cutting machine. Next use low tack tape on the negative piece and tape the die cuts onto the negative piece. This will help to ink the ornaments with the mini blending tool.
