Hi There, it’s Stephanie here today.
Welcome to Day 1 of our Blog Hop with Penny Black Stamps!
I want to show you my first christmas card I made this year using a beautiful stamp of Poinsettia from Festive Florals and a script stamp “Merry Christmas” from Joy Filled set from Penny Black and E-Z Dots® Permanent – Refillable and Crafty Foam Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.
Here we go, I have a tutorial for you.
1 – I love to create my own backgrounds for cards and layouts. If you also love to create with paint, cut a piece of watercolor paper in 11,7×17,2 cm and use some blue and beige acrylic paint with a sponge to give the background of the card a little bit texture. Splash a little bit with red paint.
2 – Stamp the motife of the Poinsettia twice with a Big Brush Pen.
3 – Cut out a hole motife and only one flower and some leaves and give the middle point some Stickles glitter.
4 – Use red Neocolor II (or other watercolor paint) to give the flower red color. I only colored one flower.
5 – Make three lines with Washi Tape at the upper right corner in matching colors.
6 – Stamp your text or wish on a white piece of paper and cut it out.
7 – Use Crafty Foam Tape to adhere the text over the washi tape. It gives a nicely 3D effect.
8 – Distress the edges of the text stripe.
9 – Cut out a piece of chipboard twice as large as the card and gives 1mm more on each side. Then use your cutting pad to make a cut at the middle. The chipboard is thick enough not to cut. It will be like a book cover.
10 – Now use washi tape to enclose the folded edge.
11 – Adhere all together with E-Z Dots® Permanent – Refillable.
12 – Punch holes through the chipboards and use a ribbon to close the card. Distress the edges with blue color.
