People won’t believe that YOU made these cute homemade Christmas cards when they see all the incredible details Lisa has shown us how to pack into them. Follow along with her steps here, though, and you can really show off your mad skillz!
Let’s get started! First, Lisa created the front panel by placing the Winter Trees In Circle inside the largest of the Small Stitch Rectangle dies and used some washi tape to hold them perfectly in place so you can cut both at once with one spin through your die cutting machine. As we’ve mentioned before, this is a handy way to use up washi tape you don’t like!
To make that beautiful starry background, Lisa blended some purple, blue and black ink onto a panel of white card stock. After ensuring the ink was completely dry with a few seconds under her heat tool, she gave it a swipe with an anti-static bag and stamped Field of Stars over the panel in Versamark and heat embossed white powder over the stars.
To add those snowy hills, Lisa cut some clouds using the Slimline Cloud Die from blue glitter paper, trimmed them into two layers and added them behind the bottom of the circle cut out. She fit her inked panel to the back of her die cut panel and then adhered the two together with some dimensional adhesive, then sticking it all down to her card base.
To keep the hilly vibe going Lisa cut more of her blue card stock with the Stitched Rectangle Die and used the Hill Dies to cut some small pieces to layer over her front panel. CUTE detail!
Now it was time to create her little critters! Lisa stamped them all from Wintery Friends, cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored them in. She popped them on her card using varying thicknesses of foam tape so everyone got a good spot to gaze at the stars.
Next she stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versamark on the same blue card stock (use the leftovers from the hill die cutting) and embossed with white. She cut each word out separately and added them with dimensional adhesive in a nice straight line over her circle window.
For just a little more sparkle, Lisa added a few sequins and this adorable handmade card was done!
