I signed up for a swap using products from the new July to January mini catalog – I chose the Christmas Lights set as my focus. This set can be ordered by itself or as part of the larger Lights Aglow collection:
My initial thought was to go straight for traditional holiday colors for my swap but I was sort of spinning my wheels – everything I went to go try just didn’t do it for me. So I decided to go black and white for something different!
To make this card, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Christmas Lights and Brightest Glow Bundles
- Color & Contour Stamp set
- Basic White Thick card stock, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ along the long side
- Basic Black card stock cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1 /8″ and piece for tree stamp
- Basic White card stock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and scrap
- Versamark ink
- Silver and Black embossing powders
- Simply Elegant Trim and Iridescent Rhinestones
- Basic Tools (snips, trimmer, adhesives, clear blocks)
- Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Mini or Regular)
- Heat Tool
To make this card, follow these steps:
- Adhere the Basic Black cardstock to the cardfront
- Using Versamark, stamp the ‘splotchy’ stamp from the Color & Contour stamp set in the upper left and bottom right of the Basic White panel. Cover in Black embossing powder and heat set with Heat Tool.
- Using Versamark, stamp Christmas tree on Basic Black card stock scrap and cover in Silver embossing powder. Heat set with Heat Tool. Cut out using die from Christmas Lights bundle
- Adhere Christmas tree to Basic White panel using glue
- Wrap length of silver twine from Simply Elegant Trim around white panel towards the bottom of the tree. Secure to the back using tape
- Adhere white panel to black panel on card front
- Stamp sentiment in Versamark on a scrap of Basic White and crop using die from Bright Glow bundle. Adhere over twine using Adhesive Foam Strips
- Tie a bow from silver twine and adhere to edge of sentiment
- Place a few Iridescent Rhinestones on card front to finish
I love how this came out!
