I am in the Christmas mood! Can you tell? I love making Christmas projects and gifts. Today I have a really fun and simple Christmas card to share with you and all it took was two stamps! That makes it even better! If you want to learn exactly how I made my card today, you can watch the full tutorial below!
Like I said, on this card I use only two stamps. Both are from Crackerbox and Suzy Stamps. The first is a simple strand of lights called “Christmas Lights”. I used the Midnight ink from Catherine Pooler to repeatedly stamp this strand, connecting each end, and filling up the entire A2 panel. To fill in any gaps from strand to strand that I might’ve missed, I used a Micro pen, but any black pen would do.
To finish the background, I used my alcohol markers to color each light bulb. You can use any color scheme, but I went with rainbow! To see how I centered my sentiment and made a frame to finish the front of the card, be sure to watch the video above! I also did a little stamping on the inside of the card as well!
The final two steps to make this card are all about adding the final little details. With a white gel pen I add a few little highlights to each light bulb then I applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents to each bulb. While both of these tasks are a bit tedious, I think they add a little touch that really adds quite a bit of interest to this simple card!
I hope you all enjoyed today’s video tutorial! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used on my card today, you can find them all linked down below! Happy Crafting Everyone!!
