Easy Holly Christmas Cards



Hi everyone, today I would like to show you this set of holly Christmas cards: in real life they have a gorgeous metallic shine to them, which is really hard to capture in the pictures.


Step 1:

I started each card by die cutting a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base, from crème coloured linen textured card stock.

I placed my stencil of choice, this one is by The Crafter’s Workshop (TCW718s), one of my favourite Christmas stencils of all time, over the panel and temporarily adhered.

Than I started applying some Spectrum Noir Metallic Midas ink in the colour “Gold” over the stencil using a foam applicator tool. I used a more heavy hand on the right hand side and faded out the ink on the left hand side.


For the second card I did the same but used the Spectrum Noir Metallic Midas ink in the colour “Bronze”.



Step 2:

Directly after taking of the stencil I applied some JudiKins Embossing Powder in “Iridescent Sparkle” over about half of the stencilled design and melted the powder with my heat tool. It creates some fun texture and gives extra shimmer to my project.


Step 3:

Next I stamped my sentiments which are from the Lili of the Valley “Christmas Handwritten Phrases” stamp set, using black ink.





Step 4:

Time to put my cards together: I die a slightly larger rectangle panel, one from gold and one from rose gold mirror card stock and adhered the previously created panels on top using liquid glue. And to finish these cards I now only have to adhere each of these combined panels onto a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s quick and easy card project! I wish you a creative day!
