Hi Everyone, Thank you for joining me today to make this super fun interactive Christmas Card using Joset’s Santa’s Sleigh and florals #12. So grab a coffee sit back and lets get started.
Step 1: Take your colored cardstock and cut it @ 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score along the 8 1/2″ side @ 2 1/8″ and 5 1/2″, cut your card front 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and set aside.
Step 2: fold up your score lines and add glue as per the picture above and attached your card front, you will want to line the card along the bottom, as per picture below.
Step 3: With your choice of cardstock cut out your sleigh, with silver card stock cut out your sleigh runners. I took a light sanding block and lightly sanded the runners and then inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink. Next I cut out a few flower petals from florals #12 from a coordinating designer paper and created my poinsettia style flower. Next I added green leaves and cut out 2 gold stems from Winter Greens.
Step 4: With the Classic Christmas sentiments set, stamp Be Merry and Season’s Greetings with embossing ink and emboss with gold detailed embossing powder and heat set.
Step 5: Out of White Cardstock cut 3 3/4 x 5 and run it through your choice of 3D embossing folder.
Step 6: Assemble your white dot background to your choice of designer paper and attached to your card base, next I attached my sleigh and Be Merry Quote. I pop dotted my florals #12 flower, leaves and gold branches. Once my card is assembled I speckled my card front cover with heavy body white paint and a metallic gold paint to give my card some shimmer.
Step 7: Attach your designer paper to the inside of your card and your Season’s Greetings quote and speckle the inside of your card with gold and white heavy body paint.
