Handmade Cards, Holiday Themed

‘Tis the Season Challenge Card 3

fullsizeoutput_52a

In the last 2 posts I focused on using holiday items for non-holiday cards. This one is doing just the opposite, can you guess the non holiday item? It’s easy to see that the paper is the item in question and it comes from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper pack (146284).

To start make a standard base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) with Whisper White Cardstock (100730). Next cover the about 2/3 of the base with the designer series paper. Don’t be afraid, the next bit gets a little tricky. Using Versa Mark Ink (102283), Stampin’ Emboss White Powder (109132) and the Lovely as a Tree stamp set (127793) stamp BOTH the stary paper and a 5 1/2 wide piece of Whisper White (100730) making sure the images will line up on the card base. The height of the whisper white cardstock doesn’t really matter as you only need the from the “ground” down. Heat emboss both. Trim the whisper white cardstock to remove the upper portion of the trees. Cover the bottom 1/3 with the trimmed piece. ~Whew the hard part is over.~ Paint the whisper white cardstock with Wink of Stella (141897) to give the card extra shimmer. Next once the wink of Stella is dry, stamp the sentiment ‘Tis the Season from the Christmas Pines stamp set (142049) in Night of Navy Ink (147110). For the final touch add some snowflake embellishments from  Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes (147811).

Having made only 1 of these it didn’t dawn on me how much easier it would be to make multiple of this card with the Stamparatus (146276). In fact holiday cards was my reason to purchase my Stamparatus.
