Christmas Card #4

Hi guys, in my previous post I said I had made another card while working on my third Christmas card, below you can see the step by step on how I made this, it’s very simple and clean. I hope you like it!

Above you can see I chose the bold letter Stampers Anonymous stamp, which I absolutely love, with a stitched die I cut out a white rectangular card, the two will be put together after the next step which I will explain down below.

I placed my stitched card in the Tonic stamping station from Tim Holtz, with the stamp placed to cover the whole card.

Using the Plaid stamp from Stampers Anonymous and Archival red ink I stamped the white card, the Tonic stamping station is a blessing, you can stamp properly any card even not using the two magnet. I love it!

As I let the white card dry from the red ink I cut out another stitched same size card from the Tim Holtz Backdrop collection using the same die and my Sizzix Big Shot, I have placed the the white card already stamped in red back in my stamping station, this time I stamped with the bold letters using clear VersaMark watermark stamp pad, which is very sticky and in my opinion optimal to used embossing glaze, as you can see above out came out very nice and clear, the glaze is Distress Glaze Peeled Paint, then with a heating gun I embossed it, I love how it came out and it’s the same color as the second card. As you can see above I already I had an idea on what I was going to use for cutouts.

I decided to go with a cream card and cut another piece of background paper to place in the front.I glued the two together and set it aside to dry.

With my embossing and cutting machine I have used the Sizzix die set #661597 and cut two sets of leaves to add to the card.

I assembled the front of the card as you see in the picture above, I left the leaves white to give some contrast, I was able to insert them under the plaided card by using some scrapbook doubled adhesive squares which I got from SimonSaysStamp, fantastic products over there too.

Above you can see I chose some of the Tim Holtz cutouts to add to the inside of the card as a collage.

This is the inside of the card, collaging and glueing the four pieces together.

Above, you can see the assembled front of the card and I added few dew drops to give it depth and dimension ! Below you ca find the slideshow of step by step and also the the material I used. Thanks for visiting my blog, I’m truly grateful.
