HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS CARD

Hello everyone! Christmas is around the corner. This is the season to be more crafty so once again I am here to share with you another card for the holidays.

For this card, I used a Christmas theme stamp of cute critters and I colored them with cool colors of blue, white and a touch of gold to add some color.

This card is very simple to create. I used a white cardstock for the base measuring 8.25″ x 5.5″ scored and folded in half. I also used a pattern paper which I created using Adobe illustrator. It is very difficult to see in the pictures how it looks but it has gold and blue snowflakes in light blue background. I might use this pattern on another project.

The blue background for the critters measures 5″ x 2.75″. You can shorten the size of the blue cardstock considering that this is only a background for the critters and some parts of it will be covered by the two white panel. I also used a strip of gold for the lace linings and black cardstock for the sentiment.

I stamped and colored the critters using my Winsor & Newton Promarkers and die cut the stamp.

I also die cut two strip of gold cardstock for the lace lining.

I heat embossed the Merry Christmas sentiment on a black cardstock and cut it in to a small strip.

To assemble the card, I adhere the snowflakes pattern paper on the white card base and the blue cardstock a bit closer in the middle.

To add more dimension, I used foam adhesive to adhere the two white panels on top and bottom of the card to make a window for the blue background then I glued the two gold strip to create a lace border for the blue cardstock.

To finish the card, I used foam dot adhesive to adhere the stamp on the blue cardstock and the sentiment below the gold lace border. Using my white Sakura Gel Pen, placed dots of white snowflakes on top of the critters.
