Christmas in June!

Hello everyone!

After all the masculine cards, I thought it was about time for something cute! And since my goal is to have loads and loads of Christmas cards ready before December, I decided to share with you a “Season to be Happy” card! Hope you enjoy it!


Quick Instructions:

I started by heat embossing the sentiment in the bottom right corner of my panel. This way I didn’t have to worry in case I didn’t have enough white space later. Then I applied Oxide inks over my Create a Smile stencil. I splashed a bit of water and dabbed it off to create the watercolored effect. Next I die cut a star shape out of my panel and I also die cut the same star out of white cardstock. I stamped the little reindeer and the stars on the white die cut and colored them using watercolors. To finish off my card I added a bit of Wink of Stella on the little yellow stars and parts of my reindeer and adhered everything down on a white cardbase (I adhered the diecut with double sided foam tape to make it pop a bit!). Job done!

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
