Christmas cards are super fun to make…there are so many designs, stamp sets and colours that you can use! For this card, I used Night of Navy Cardstock with Whisper White Ink and I’ve always loved that combination!
How To Make This Hand Stamped Christmas Card:
For this card, I started with Night of Navy Cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and then folded at 4 1/4″. I used the splatter stamp from the Every Good Wish stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink.
Tip: As the Whisper White ink is sponge-like, you will want to just tap on the ink pad a few times. DO NOT PRESS HARD as you will get thick white ink all over.
Cut 2 pieces of White Cardstock; one will be 4 1/4″ x 2″ and the other 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Take your Paper Snips and cut “hills” on your cardstock and then take the side of the scissors to rough up the edges. Adhere them to the bottom of the card and stamp your greeting in Night of Navy Ink.
Stamp the Trunk/Branches of your tree in Chocolate Chip Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use Wild Wasabi Ink to stamp the first layer of your tree on top of the branches. Stamp with Old Olive Ink the next layer of your tree. The best part is that the stamp set is photopolymer…which means that you can see through your stamps! I stamped two trees and then…here comes the fun part! Cut out the trees using Paper Snips! 🙂 Add your trees to the card using Dimensionals.
Next, you’ll add dots of glue with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and then sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Let dry before touching.
