Decorative Stamped Christmas Card

Hello friends, Terri here, and today I’m showing you some of my favorite embellishment tips for decorative stamped Christmas cards.  Get ready to foil, glitter and color!

Finding Your Decorative Focal Points

This Avery Elle mistletoe stamp has lots of berries which is perfect for this project.  This will be the focus for embellishing with the wonderful products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  To begin, add lots of Adhesive Dots Micro to the smallest berries.

Add Glitter For Decorative Sparkle

You can top your adhesives dots in so many ways; embossing powder, glitter and foil to name a few.  Today, we’ll be adding red glitter.  Sprinkle liberally, then press the glitter into the Adhesive Dots Micro to better fuse the glitter to the dots.  Tap off the excess and replace into your glitter jar.

Add Dimension For That Wow Factor

Dimension is always a plus and using the 3D Foam Circles Black Mix is the perfect choice for the larger berries.  Instead of glitter, I’m using the red foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit.  Also, I’m only using the small black foam circles, as opposed to white.  It offers a shadow effect that I love.

Simply lay your red foil, shiny side up, on the foam dots, gently rub, then peel off the lining.  Grab your camera and show your friends how amazing you are!  It’s a great way to Wear Your Adhesives On The Outside!

To finish off my card, I used a white gel pen and dotted my berries, my leaves and added stripes to my colored ribbon.  Use whatever coloring tools that suit your needs for the leaves and ribbon.

Additionally, my mixed media paper panel was popped up with Crafty Foam Tape White and applied to a 5.5 x 4.5 inch top fold white card. I also added watercolor splatters and drew a faux frame along the edges with a black glitter pen.
