Season's Greetings

Hello Everyone,

Happy Morning. So after celebrating the big festival i.e. "Diwali", We are so excited to celebrate for "Christmas" and "New Year". So I have planned some Christmas Cards to share with you all.

Before starting, I would like to tell you about our new release for the month, if you have not checked clicked below link for new products.



I have made five different cards with different techniques and interactive elements. This post is picture heavy so take your cup of coffee/tea and enjoy today's post.

So, let's get started

1. Heat Embossed Note Cards

Brief info about cards:

  1. I have started cutting a base i.e. of 10" x 5" kraft CS and scored it at 5" to make a 5" x 5" folding card.
  2.  Then I have took one water-colored CS and another a red CS. Rub anti-static powder on both CS so that there won't be any extra sticking embossing powder.
  3. Then on water-color CS, I have stamped smallest snowflakes with versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder. For another red CS, I have stamped bells with versamark and heat embossed using gold embossing powder.
  4. Now will do some blending using distress oxides to create background on water-color CS. And on red CS, I have stamped sentiment and did heat embossing. 
  5. I have cut brown bakers twine, charm and attached to the panels. 
  6. Next I have die-cut fluffy cloud and stamped sentiment. And To stamp reindeer, I have took impresso tool (because I want to stamp some bottom of image on cloud and top image on background, so with normal acrylic block you won't be able to achieve crisp image) and stamped 2-3 times, till I didn't get crisp image.  
  7. I have gave some shimmery effect on reindeer stamped image, some gold sequins and then attached over gold CS.
  8. Now both panels are ready to attach on folding card.

2. Wild Rose Shaker Card

Brief info about card:

  1. I have started with 5" x 7" cream texture CS and stamping big rose and leaves from stamp set and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
  2. Colored it with red and green combination pencils from Steadler Luna.
  3. Heat embossed sentiment with gold embossing powder.
  4. Die-cut a frame and made a shaker window. 
  5. For shaker elements, I have used clear sequins and completed the shaker card.
  6. Adhered it to landscape top folding card.

3. Slider Card Using Cut3 Dies
