In this card project, I used the Stamparatus.  Because I wanted to set up the Stamparatus to quickly stamp all of the different images of this card, I had to get the Stamparatus ready for this.  Hop on over to read how to set up your stamparatus to stamp multiple images for one card here.  In this blog post, I'm going to walk you through how I assembled the Making Christmas Bright Christmas card.

There are few steps I used to create this card and I'll be going over them here.  You can view the entire video below if you would like.  I also have the dimensions of this card if you would like to recreate this card for yourself. Fill out the form below and I'll get you access to my resource library where I store all of my tutorials.

Don't have a specific color marker? No problem

The paper I used for this project was the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and these are the colors that coordinate with this DSP.

I wanted to use the Mossy Meadow to color in the lights on the top stamped image.  Mossy Meadow is a new color in the current catalog.  (Actually it is a returning color from some time ago).  I didn't have the color yet, so I decided to try something out.  I used my Blender Pen to lift some color off the ink pad and it worked!




 

One I was finished coloring, then I just scribbled on the grid paper to use up the color so the pen would go back to neutral.  So it was a perfect hack!




I used Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler to color in the remaining lights.




Assemble the card

Next you will adhere the DSP to the bottom on your front Very Vanilla card panel.



Give the card some flair

Use mini glue dots to adhere the ribbon to the card.

Then create a knot bow by just tying a knot around the ribbon with a shorter piece.

Be sure to trim your ribbon edges. I like trimming them at an angle.




Adhere the panels and sentiment

Next you will want to adhere the front panel to the cardbase making sure to center it.  Then you can use the dimensional dots to adhere your circle sentiment the the front card panel.

I like to jazz up the insides of my cards and I love using up scrap DSP.  So on this card, you will use the snail glue to adhere the DSP to the bottom of the card panel.

Finally adhere the inside card panel to the inside of the card base.  Make sure to center it.




Final Project

I think this is such a lovely card and can not wait to send it out!  Who will you make this card for?  What would you do different?
