Hello my crafty friends! I am on full “Christmas Card” production mode and this card today is probably one of my favorites so far!
For today’s project, I am showcasing the Reindeer Games Stamp Set and coordinating dies, along with the Santa’s Helper Stamp Set (sentiment) and Birch Tree With Cardinal Backdrop Die.
Here’s how I made this card:
- stamp the images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock. It is really helpful if you have the Misti stamping tool to get a really nice impression of your stamped images.
- color the images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice). I color mine with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.
- die-cut the image(s) using the coordinating die(s) with your die-cutting machine. Secure the dies by using Pixie Tape so they don’t shift while die-cutting.
- ink-blend a panel of some Bristol smooth white card stock with Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes. Keep blending until they have a smooth transition between the colors.
- die-cut the ink-blended panel using the Birch Tree With Cardinal Backdrop Die.
- use the same Birch Tree With Cardinal Backdrop Die to die-cut some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock. Adhere this panel on some A2-size notecard with foam adhesive for added dimension.
- in-lay the ink-blended pieces on the card with Bearly Arts Precision Glue.
- use your alcohol marker to add some lines to the Birch Tree for added texture.
- adhere the focal images to the card.
- finish the card design by stamping the sentiment from the Santa’s Helper Stamp Set.
