CARD DETAILS

You will need just a handful of things for these cards starting with colored cardstock of your choice, I’m using various colors from Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder in gold and white (or some other color if you like), you’ll also need other supplies you usually use for heat embossing, a white pen to add accents, Nuvo Jewels drops in bright and cheerful colors (I used 6 different colors), you’ll also need Nuvo Drops in Gloss white to add dimensional white dots and finally – you’ll need clear stamps! I’m using 4 stamp sets for these cards starting with Critter Sweaters, Winter Scene, Tiny Words Christmas and Festive Trees.

I started working on these cards by heat embossing selected images on colored cardstock. Less is more with these simple and modern Christmas cards, so try to add avoid adding a ton of stuff onto your cards. Go with a simple, but meaningful sentiments and one or three images to make a little scene. You can add in the rest using tools such as a white pen on Nuvo Drops to spice up the card design.

To make these cards your own you can try using another color of cardstock for your background and another color of embossing powder for the heat embossing.

I also want to encourage you to always look at your stamps in a different way. Have a simple triangle image? How else can you use it besides it being just a triangle? Can it be used a mini Christmas Tree? Can you stamp 2 tier or even 3 tier trees by layering triangles one on top of the other and have different size trees for your cards?

    1. Love love love your Christmas cards! Not sure I can pick a favorite because they are all amazing!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful talent!

    1. Love these cards! I was wondering how you did the small Christmas trees w/ the branch! I thought perhaps you inked the image, and then “stamped” it on a tree image to remove ink before stamping the small tree. Boy, was I over complicating it, lol!

    1. Love your one layer cards! And they’re simple yet so festive and very impressive. I also like that you created them with basic supplies and tools. Some good hints I needed to be reminded of again too. Thank you!

    1. Love your video, Love all your cards, Such great ideas!!! Thanks, Yana
