Here’s a lovely Christmas cards made during our workshops.
This card uses Phill’s Triple Layering Stencils and Christmas DL Silhouette Stamps with either inks or embossing powders. We have also used The Stately Double Debossed Squares and Sue Wilson Poinsettia Dies.
The Full Card
Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cuts needed as below:
- Base Card is 19cm x 19cm
- Top/Bottom Inked Panel – 18.5cm x 5.5cm (x2)
- Top/Bottom Stenciled Panel – 18cm x 5cm (x2)
- Stately Double Debossed Squares – x2 on front and x2 inside
- Image Piece – 9cm x 9cm
- Poinsettia and Holly
TIP – We cut the card at 6cm down from the top and used the offcut to create some of the other panels to save card!
Stage 2 – Choose 1, 2 or 3 stencils to create your stenciled panels and the same number of coordinatng inks. Decide if you want to layer the pattern or offset the pattern – it looks stunning either way! Working with largest stencil first create your own unique background on both panel pieces.
TIP – Start with the lightest colour, especially if you are layering the patterns on top of each other.
Stage 3 – Choose your DL Silhouette stamp and either ink or one of the stunning embossing powders to create the main image.
TIP – don’t forget these are long stamps, so choose which part of the stamp you want to use and make sure it fits securely on your stamping platform so you can stamp the image a few times for full coverage.
Stage 4 – Ink up the Double Debossed Squares for the front and inside. Colour the Poinsettias if you wish.
stage 5 – Assemble the layers, using foam tape where you wish. Finish with glitter or pearls!
