Hello everyone… I hope you all had a fabulous and joyful Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones yesterday. We had a great time with my family here in USA, though I always miss my family back in Indonesia, too. So… Thanksgiving has passed and now… Christmas is 1 month from today!
I still have more Christmas cards to share with you all 🙂 Today, I am sharing 2 cards I made with Our Daily Bread Designs November New Release stamps, custom dies, and paper collections.
My first card is clean and simple. I simply cut the stripe patterned paper from ODBD – Snowflake Season Collection 6×6 paper pad into 3.25″ x 5.5″ and added it in the middle of the A2 White card base.
For the sentiment, I cut a rectangle black cardstock (2.75″ x 1.25″). On the black label, I stamped the sentiment from ODBD – Jingle Bell Time stamp set and then I added some of the Super Fine White Embossing Powder. I heat it up with my Craft Heater. Adter that, I added the sentiment label on the card with adhesive runner.
I embellished the card with some snowflakes that I die cut some of the snowflakes from White heavy cardstock with ODBD Custom Die – Snow Crystals. I added light blue watercolor paint on one of it. When the colored snowflake dried well, I added them on the card with Liquid Glass glue. Then I added some Silver sequins with Liquid Glass glue.
My second card is no-bulky shaker card. Basically, the shaker window is not bulky because I do not use any 3D foam tape. I saw a tutorial on YouTube. Jennifer showed how to make this card so easy 🙂
I die cut A2 White card base with ODBD Custom Die – Rectangles to create a window on the card base. And then I die cut the holly leaves patterned paper from ODBD – Holly Jolly Collection 6×6 paper pad to create the front panel window with ODBD Custom Die – Double Stiched Rectangles. I added the patterned paper on top of the card base with adhesive runner. The window on the card base is smaller so it show a white trim, I colored the white trim edges with Moss Green – Spectrum Aqua Marker fine tip.
On a piece of acetate paper, I stamped the sentiment from ODBD Merry & Bright clear stamp set with StazOn black ink pad. I set it aside to dry while I was working on the Christmas Light strings. Stamping on non-porous surface like acetate, StazOn is the best ink to use.
On White heavy weight cardstock, I stamped the Christmas light strings with Versamark ink pad with MISTI stamping tool, added some Ranger Gold embossing powder, and heat it up with my Craft Heater. I did it twice to get the thick embossed image. It is easy to do double-stamping with MISTI tool 🙂 After I did the embossing, I colored them with Specteum Noir Blendable pencil colors. I picked the red and green that match with the patterned paper colors. Then I die cut the string lights with the matching ODBD Custom Die – Christmas Light.
I added the stamped acetate on the card to cover the window from inside of the card with Liquid Glass Glue. Then I added some color mixed sequins on it, not too much, or it will be too tight. I cut out a piece of white cardstock that slightly bigger than the shaker window, and then I added it on card to cover the window. I used 0.5″ Scor-pal tape for this. And the shaker card is done 🙂
