Hello Friends its Karan Gerber here with you today on the Creative Scrapbooker blog sharing a Christmas card with you using Heartfelt Creations paper, stamps and coordinating dies.
What i love about the collections from Heartfelt Creations is how easy it is to create gorgeous cards by just adding a few die cut images.
I am working with the papers from the Festive Holly Collection
Stamps and dies also from the Festive Holly Collection and the small poinsettias are from Celebrate the Season
Today I am using distress inks from Ranger and Zig Clean Color Brush Markers from Kuretake to color my images.
Lets get started; stamp out your images on canson water color paper using Archival Coffee Ink. Begin to color with the zig makers. I used the following colors.Next die cut outthe above images, then stamp poinsettias from Celebrate the Season on canson watercolor paper using Archival Coffee Ink. Using a finger dauber; color using Aged Mahogany and Peeled paint from Ranger! Pierce holes in center using a piercing tool, turn over and mist from back.Lightlymold from the back.Insert stamens by adding a drop of dries clear adhesive in center pull stamen through and let dry.For my background pattern paper; I chose this image from the papers and cut to 5.75 x 5.75 and used the Fleur borders on the bottom; and cut out again on the white card which is 6×7.Layer the die cut images on top using foam adhesive.Attach the mini poinsettias to the holly leaves; be sure to cut off the wire from the stamens. Wrap some gold ribbon around the right side of the card; add some gold thread and a couple trinket pins. Detail with Glue gloss and crystal clear.Final detail is to add Nuvo Morning Dew to the berries on the patterned paper image. Nuvo will dry with some added dimension and make those berries pop.Stamp the Merry Christmas on a coordinating paper, and lightly ink edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
Enjoy creating Christmas cards for your friends and family using the papers, stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.
