Hi, and welcome back! It seems as if time as stood still and slipped right by all at once. It's been two weeks since my last card tutorial, what? It's just a very busy time of year for us all, right? None the less, here I am with a new video sharing a few last-minute Christmas cards and tips on using a step by step method to mass-produce them.

I have a quick video tutorial and a step by step tutorials below.

I received these Pebbles Inc. Foiled Foam Letter Stickers in a 2019 Grab Box from Simon Says Stamp, you can watch my video on that here. When I saw them I knew they would great for sentiments, they make for a great focal point on cards.

Okay, let's get started with this step by step tutorial.

  • Start by creating 4.25" x 5.5" card bases using colored cardstock of your choice

  • Create a subtle tone on tone directly on the card base with stencils, inks, and blender brushes

  • Set card bases aside, quick clean up, and move onto the next step

  • Stamp background image with VersaMark Ink

  • Add embossing powder

  • Heat Set

  • You can add color to the embossed background with colored pencils optional

  • Ink blend edges of the cardstock using a blender brush, remove excess ink from embossing with a rag

  • Use a T-ruler and gold gel pen to create a frame directly on the card base around the embossed panel

  • Add mounting foam to the back of the embossed panel, center on the front of the card base

  • Center gold foil letters to create sentiments using T Ruler

  • Create a sentiment strip by stamping the rest of sentiment onto cardstock, add mounting foam and center under the gold sentiment

  • Finish cards by adding sequins or enamel dots

Pretty easy, right?
