Simon Says Stamp | Modern Christmas Card with Mod Tress Background. Video

Hello! Today I have simple stationery style Christmas card and tutorial to share featuring products from Simon Says Stamp Fun & Festive October 2018 release.

Stationery style cards, in my world, are very simple and clean cards that are almost one layer. The only thing that makes them slightly dimensional is a sentiment strip that is popped up using foam adhesive.

CARD DETAILS

For the card I’m sharing today I used Mod Trees background stamp and clear heat embossed it on Green Apple cardstock. Next, I used several colors of ink and ink blended the background to make it blue or more of a blue-green color. I used Navy by Hero Arts, Deep Sea by Simon and High Dive also by Simon.

Next, I stamped a simple Holiday Hello sentiment in black ink onto white cardstock strips. This sentient comes from a new Tiny Words Christmas stamp set and I have to say – I was having a brain freeze because they are just soooo many different sentiments in that set and I couldn’t pick one. I ended up choosing the first one I had my eye one, but I am really looking forward to using all of them on my cards at some point. The size of these is perfect for my cards, the font is awesome – it’s like the best tiny sentiment stamp set for Christmas you can wish for.

I used thin foam adhesive and foam mounted the sentiment strips onto the background. Lastly, I used a white pen and added snow like highlights onto a few trees.
