Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Exciting Moment – D18035. This image reminds me so much of me and my brothers opening our gifts together every year in front of the Christmas tree.
To create this card I began by making a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. Recollections – Journey To The North Pole was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied around the outside edges of the card with a sponge dauber. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut Recollections – Burgundy and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of each of them and they were both popped up onto the centre of the card. Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image and frame was cut out with Lea’bilities – Star Christmas Frame. TCW – Stardust Butter – Champagne was applied to the star frame and I set it aside to dry.
With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the centre frame die cut using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured it in with Copics and then with Scotch tape applied to the back of the image, rejoined it to the star frame. U-Line double-sided tape was added and the finished piece was popped up onto the centre of the card. YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops and YNS Gumdrops – Firecracker Sparkly were added to the coloured image. Lastly, I placed the sentiment and 3 poinsettias to the card using Holiday Trendz – Foil Stickers – Seasonal Icons.
