VIDEO TUTORIAL

In this month episode I’m sharing very simple (and easy to copy!) Modern Christmas cards. I also have a vintage card idea using same supplies but different techniques at the end of my video so be sure to watch until the end to see it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this project by trimming my Stamper’s Select white cardstock to 4 ¼  x 5 ½“. You can do your stamping directly on a front of a card if you like, I prefer to cut a panel, stamp everything I need to stamp on a panel and later adhere that panel onto a card base vs stamping directly on the base of the card.

Using two Holly branch images from the Cutaway Tags: Winter stamp set I stamped a beautiful frame around the edge of my panel. I picked two colors of green ink for my stamping – a lighter and darker. I stamped the larger branch using lighter ink color, and the other, smaller branch, using darker ink color. I made sure to double stamp my images to get a more vibrant color of ink.

This stamp set, Cutaway Tags: Winter, has a detailed layer to the holly leaves – dashed lines that you can stamp in a darker ink color or heat emboss over your leaves. I kept my images as is without the second layer stamping because I felt they looked a bit more modern this way.

These branches also have berries to them and you can stamp these using red ink or again you can heat emboss them, use enamel dots, gems or even little sequins. I didn’t stamp mine as I later used Nuvo drops in Red Berry color and added dimensional berries onto my cards.

To create a sentiment I used a frame from the Gathered Garden set and white heat embossed it along with a beautiful message from the the Very Merry set in white embossing powder onto red cardstock.

I also used a coordinating die and cut the frame out in my die cutting machine. Using fun foam and double sided sticky sheets I made a fun foam shape and used it to evenly adhere my heat embossed frame onto the card. You can use foam adhesive squares for this, but I prefer to have a solid layer of fun foam under my die cut pieces so I often cut identical shapes out using fun foam.

I made an A2 top folding card base out of white cardstock, adhered my panel, foam mounted my sentiment layer on top, added red berries and that finished my card! Be sure to check out my video tutorial to see a vintage card idea using same supplies!

    1. Love these so much! Could you also post a picture of the second one you made in vintage style! Thank you!

    1. I really love both of your cards. hard to pick. They are both so different even though you used the same stamps. No matter what I love your work and always look forward to your videos.

    1. I too really like both, but my style is more vintage so I have to say the vintage one really caught my attention. I appreciate your comments about doing some simpler cards. I too typically spend a lot of time on a card and don’t really care to “mass produce”; however, this year I’m finding it hard to make cards the usual way and am giving in (and giving myself permission!) to mass produce a few of the simpler designs. Stepping outside of my comfort zone!! Also, thanks for the story about your Thanksgiving experience. It made me chuckle! Welcome to America!!!! For the most part I stay off the streets and out of the stores until Monday! Thanks for the emails about the sales and for the video. Happy shopping … and stay safe!

    1. I definitely like the “plainer”, modern look! It’s something I’ll try to do soon! Your videos and cards share so many fun details – thanks.

    1. This is a beautiful card! I do like that vintage look of the later card really well!!
