Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let Your Voice Sing – D15205 for the main image and Sentiment – Holiday Sentiments 003 – DS163003. Growing up we always had so much fun gathering with friends and family and singing Christmas carols.
To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I embossed the music design with a Cuttlebug – ProvoCraft – Allegro embossing folder. I cut it down to the size of 5.25″ x 4″ and adhered it directly to the base card.
Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image was cut out with Spellbinders – Elegant Ovals. With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the die cut. It was coloured in and then a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen was used to colour in the fancy border surrounding the image. The sentiment was stamped with my MISTI and VersaMark ink. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the card. To finish the card off, I applied Dress It Up – Glitter Holly buttons with liquid glue from their Holiday Collection.
