DT Teresa - Christmas

Hello Everyone!

December is here and you guessed it! Yes, we are sharing projects to celebrate the Christmas season.

I am not organised enough to have Christmas cards well underway, so I usually choose one or two (or a few!) designs and create them production-line style. I keep mostly to a simple design to speed up the process and it is a simple card design I have for you today.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110# Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".




I used the WPlus9 Holiday Trimmings stamp set and coordinating dies and each christmas tree was stamped with three Altenew inks. To create an ombre affect I inked up the stamp with the lightest tone and then covered the bottom of the image with a medium tone, then added the dark tone to the base of the image before stamping. 

The decorative element of the tree was stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with Hero Arts silver embossing powder after swiping the cardstock with EK Tools Powder Tool to prep the surface. The sentiment was also stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder, White was then diecut with the coordinating die with a Sizzix Sidekick Machine. I adhered the sentiment with foam tape to complete the card.





Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.


Happy crafting and have a great day!


Teresa
