Hi Eveyone, it’s Tina here today. I have a Holiday card to share with you using the new Merry Critters Stamp Set and the Double Stitched Rectangles Die. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card.
Step 1 – Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim White Cardstock to 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Apply Distress Oxide Ink using an ink applicator to create a sky. I used Tumbled Glass starting from 1 1/2″ from the bottom and working up to Stormy Sky. I sprayed it with water to create some droplets. I sprayed som Shimmer Spritz for some added sparkle. Once dry I placed the Snowed In Stencil and applied Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone. Let dry.
Step 3 – Stamp Merry Critters images using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Color in the images with medium of your choice. I used Winsor and Newton Promarkers. Fussy cut the images or use a scan n cut.
Step 4 – Dry Emboss the scene from Step 2 using the 2 largest dies. Spray a little water to help prevent cracking of the paper. Adhere to the card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Glue.
Step 5 – Optional – Create hills – Stamp sentiment in bottom right corner using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive Glue and foam tape for the last layer.
Step 6 – Adhere the images from Step 3 using collage medium and foam squares for the tree. Using a white gel pen add some snow to the tree.
Step 7 – For added interest and sparkle adhere Dark Blue Jewels using a Crystal Katana Tool and collage medium.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. The Merry Critters Stamp set is a fun way to create your holiday cards. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
