Quick and Easy Christmas card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Compliments Season CAS

 

Good morning. This is a quick and easy Christmas card make – great when you have big batches of cards to get ready. I think that the sentiment might be better stamped directly onto the card front – quicker too.

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Stamp the trees with Versafine and extend the base of the scene by drawing with the pen. Edge the card with black marker and a little Distress Ink. Glue to the card front.
  2. Stamp the sentiment with Versamark and emboss with the sparkly gold powder. Note: I combined 2 sentiments using the separate ‘and’ stamp to join them. Tip: Use a gridded acrylic block to help align the text level and straight.
  3. Trim and edge with black marker. Glue to the card front.
  4. Finish with a bow and with dots of 3D glaze pen.

Sparkling Star card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Sparkling Star

 

Good evening. Today I am sharing some of my Christmas makes made for the recent shows on Hochanda from Chocolate Baroque. Sorry if Christmas makes are too early for you but hopefully they will give you a bit of inspiration x.

Although I stamped the Christmas trees onto vellum and cut it out to build the star/flower petals for the embellishment, it doesn’t necessarily have to be for Christmas. White on white would make a lovely wedding card.

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Stamp the corners onto the card blank and emboss with sparkle powder.
  2. Stamp the stripy trees 6 times onto vellum and emboss with the sparkly powder. Cut out the medium and small tree to make the petals. Glue onto the card and add the gem to the centre.
  3. Draw on the faux stitching and dot onto the background (groups of 3 dots).
