Who doesn’t love Christmas? And who doesn’t love making Christmas cards? There are several really nice Christmas stamps and dies in the 2019-20 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog for you to use right now! Who needs to wait until Christmas?
Last week, I made two Christmas cards for my Christmas in July stamp class. And I’m going to share one of those cards with you today.
Pretty Peacock sets the stage for all of the white elements in this card. It provides a great contrast for the various shades of white. We start with a Whisper White card stock base. The snowy hill was created from Shimmery White Cardstock, and the rolling hill was cut from the In The Woods die. There is a line of trees in the background that were stamped very lightly with white craft ink using the Winter Woods stamp set. The focal point, that gorgeous tree, was cropped from Whisper White cardstock and the In The Woods dies. A Bone Folder was used to fold up the boughs and create dimension. Then the entire tree was spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with a little rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. That tree was finished with a few Rhinestones. The sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink.
Let’s take a close-up look at that tree! Do you see the shimmer?
This card would be very easy to recreate. I am planning on making several of these and get a jump start on my Christmas cards now, because, let’s be honest, who has lots of extra time during the holidays? Better to get a head start now, right?
