Alright so it’s time to make A LOT of Christmas cards. I need to make a few sets to give as gifts, as well as make some cards to give out. So…..I opted to start with a few simple sets, this is one of them. I’ve been so eager to use this Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous stamp set called Scribbly Christmas, so this is my first set of many!
I wanted something clean, simple and easy to make. So I wanted to simply stamp the trees, but have a bit of bling around them, so I used Hero Arts Infinity Postage dies. I cut out two of each of the larger postage die from DCWV – Solid Whites Paper Pad and DCWV Solid Golds Paper Pad.
I then cut out 6 of the smaller Postage Die using Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then I took 6 of the 8 tree stamps from the set, positioned them using my MISTI and then used Altenew’s Just Green, Warm Sunshine and Pure Graphite Crip Dye Inks to ink of the different sections of the stamps as I wanted a mutli coloured image.
I adhered the tree die cut to the fancy paper die cuts and then used some Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere is all to the card base. Then I used a variety of sentiment stamps from the same stamp set and used Versafine Onyx Black ink and Simon Says stamp’s acrylic block to stamp all six card bases.
To add a bit of dimension, bling and a pop of colour, I added some Nuvo drops in Ruby Slippers and Honey Gold to add some ornaments on each of the trees. I also made coordinating envelopes for each of the cards using Christmas themed Washi tape.
Voila! First Christmas set is done!
…and oh….I also packaged all 6 cards in an acetate card box, then added a bit of ribbon and sequin ribbon (made a bow out of it) for a bit of poppy decor! Now I’m done! 😉
