Crafting a Colorful Christmas
In this video, I explored a new technique for using the Pine Cones and Holly Stamp Set. Instead of the usual heat embossing, I experimented with various vibrant ink colors. The result? A beautiful rainbow of Christmas cards that are sure to brighten anyone’s day!
Step 1: Stamping the Magic
To begin, I used my trusty Misti stamping tool to stamp the pine cones and holly in different colors. Catherine Pooler’s “Deck the Halls” ink gave a rich, dark green, perfect for that classic touch. Then, I tried the festive “Cranberry Fizz” for a splash of cheerful red. But why stop there? I also tried some unconventional colors, and I must say, the non-traditional hues turned out to be just as stunning!
Step 2: Assembling the Joy
With a plethora of colorful stamped images, it was time to assemble the cards. I trimmed one panel in half and adhered it to an A2-sized card base, leaving a bit of white space for a clean, elegant look.
Next, I took another stamped panel and turned it into a diamond shape, placing it in the center with foam tape to add some dimension.
Step 3: The Finishing Touch
To add that extra festive touch, I cut out a beautiful Essential Diamond Frame from red cardstock and added it to the center with foam tape. This elegant frame adds a perfect finishing touch to the design.
Finally, I crafted a “Merry Christmas” sentiment, layered it up with a couple of backings for added dimension, and placed it on the card front.
Step 4: Sparkle and Shine
To make these cards truly magical, I couldn’t resist adding a touch of bling. A few sparkly gems strategically placed around the design added a delightful sparkle that will dazzle the recipients.
