Easy slimline Christmas card in rainbow colors

November 3, 2021

Hello everyone and happy November! It´s Sanna here again with another card tutorial share. This time I´ve got something fun to share: a clean and simple card that originated from last months card project´s leftover pieces. This is a fun way to use up paper strips and create cool looking cards. Hope you like the idea!

Here is how I created this card:

Step 1: I had some colored paper strip (see my October card tutorial share) leftovers from the previous cards, so I took the Classic Christmas Special Kit snowflake die and arranged the snowflakes on a slimline card sized piece of white cardstock and die cut them with my die cutting machine.
Step 2: I placed the die cut snowflakes aside and adhered the colored paper strips behind the negative snowflake areas to create the striped-snowflake-look.
Step 3: Next I took some pearlescent blue watercolor and added random color splatters onto the white area of the background for additional detail. You could also use regular watercolors here or add ink spray splatters, for example. Whatever you have available.
Step 4: Next arrange the die cut snowflake pieces into the center of the card in a row and adhere them on place.
Step 5: Take a kraft cardstock piece and stamp a Christmas sentiment – stamp comes with the kit – and heat emboss it with white embossing ink. Adhere on place with 3D foam for additional dimension.

This is such a fun way to make a cheerful card. By the way, you could also replace the inked paper strips with leftover patterned papers. That would also create a fun look! For additional information, I´ve recorded a short video to give you a better idea of the steps. Hope you enjoy it!

I don´t know about you, but I just love playing with this Classic Christmas Special Kit so much! See you again next month with another card tutorial.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna

CAS slimline Christmas cards in bold colors

October 3, 2021

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest team member card tutorial. For today’s card share I wanted to create a set of slimline Christmas cards in bold colors. I did that by using actually very little supplies, so these cards are easy to replicate and do plenty of at once.

I have again used the gorgeous Classic Christmas Special Kit for creating these cards and the only thing I added to the kit was Brusho´s, metallic watercolours, embossing powders and ink. If you don´t have Brusho´s, you can replace them with spray inks, watercolour palettes or even patterned papers. Here is how I did the cards:

Step 1: Take white plain cardstock and apply the Brusho powders onto the surface. Spray water mist on top and let the colors spread on paper. You can also help a little with a paint brush and then dry with a heat tool. Once you are at it, create several different toned ones, so you can create a series of cards in the end.
Step 2: Next apply metallic or pearlescent watercolor splatters with a paint brush on top of the bold colored pieces and let dry.


Step 3: Now die cut the same amount of backgrounds using the background die from the Classic Christmas Special Kit and adhere it on top of the colorful piece.
Step 4: Next stamp and heat emboss sentiments using the stamp set from the kit. I used white, red, blue and black embossing color tones for my cards, but you can take any colour you prefer.
Step 5: Finally, fussy cut the sentiment pieces into right size and adhere them onto the card bases using 3D-foam. This adds nice dimension to the cards.

Now you have a fun set of Christmas cards, that are still flat enough to be mailed in an envelope, but will for sure cheer up the recipient with their strong colours.

I have again recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea of each and every step. Enjoy!

I created a total of six cards using the same basic technique, but just changing the color combinations. I love how happy and bright there cards turned out.

I hope I could inspire you to give this idea a try and create a few clean and simple Christmas cards yourself. You can also divede the stept into several days. One day all you need to do is make the backgrounds, the next you die cut the white pieces and the day after you stamp and emboss the sentiments and on the final day you just adhere everything together. That way you could do a bigger batch of cards, too.

See you again next month with another card tutorial!
xxx, Sanna
