Christmas cards...

Hi! I am back today with some more inspiration for our current challenge



Card 1:

For my first card I combined some stencils with heat embossing.


  • Take a panel of red card stock and stamp the sentiment with embossing ink. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Place the Splash stencil in the desired position and apply embossing ink through it. Heat emboss with red glitter embossing powder.
  • Run the embossing ink pad over the edges of the card panel, dip into gold embossing powder and heat set.
  • To make the stripy background, take a red card base and simply draw diagonal lines with two different gold markers. Turn the ruler upside down while using the markers so that the ink doesn't smear.
  • Pop up the card panel on some foam tape and adhere to the card base.

Here is a closer look at the card:

Card 2:
For my second card I used a combination of techniques.




  • Take a panel of silver shimmer paper and ink with distress oxide inks Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean.
  • Stamp the snowflakes from the Christmas Decors stamp set with silver pigment ink.
  • Die cut the panel and also a window. Place the panel of shimmer card base and stamp the stag image from the Christmas Decors stamp set. I inked the body of the stag with Peacock Feathers and the horns with Salty Ocean.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas stamp set on a strip of shimmer paper with both the inks again.
  • Mount the inked panel and the sentiment on foam tape.

Card 3:

I went for nontraditional colors for this card. I also couldn't resist using the Arabic Pattern stencil which is the first stencil I have designed for Mudra. I love how it turned out!





  • Take a piece of shimmer paper and ink it with distress oxide inks Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans.
  • Die cut a rectangle out of the center.
  • Stamp the tree from the Christmas stamp set and the sentiment from the Christmas Decor stamp set with embossing ink and heat set with gold embossing powder.
  • Tape the Arabic Patterns stencil to the remaining panel. This is a pattern that can be extended easily so the paper size doesn't matter.
  • Apply gold pigment ink through the stencil.
  • Adhere the center panel to a kraft card base and pop up the frame with foam tape.

Here is a closer look.
