Simon Says Stamp | Slimline Merry Christmas Greeting Card

This weekend I dove a bit more into slimline cardmaking. While I am still trying to find the perfect size, I am quite enjoying the process and the end results it brings. My today’s card combines 2 slimline stamp sets (sentiments) with an older regular sized set (snowflakes).

CARD DETAILS

This card features a LOT of white heat embossing. In fact, the whole card is embossed. When doing white heat embossing it is also handy to use a white pen. You can fix any imperfections with its help and simply color over embossing where it isn’t perfect. I’ve done that on this card.

Follow these instructions step by step to re-create this card:

Hero Arts inks will leave a residue on white embossing. To clean that up I spray a cloth with Hero Arta Ultra Clean stamp cleaning solution and gently wipe the embossing. It remover the ink. It can also remove the ink from the paper, so be careful doing this.

  • Spray the background with Hero Arts Shimmer Spray.
  • Create a Slimline card base from red cardstock. I took a Letter sheet, scored it at 4″, folded and trimmed creating a 4″ x 8 1/2″ card base. Trim background panel to 3 1/2″ x 8″. Foam mount to the card base.
  • White heat emboss a sub sentiment on red cardstock. Cut out and foam mount to the card.
  • Use White Nuvo Drops to embellish the snowflakes. Add flat silver sequins to finish the card.
