Easy slimline Christmas card in rainbow colors

Hello everyone and happy November! It´ s again my turn to share another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest team project with you today. 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,

Happy Holidays

Hello and happy Monday! I have now officially started on my yearly Christmas cards. Late, like every year ;-). I have quite a few to do, so I will be sharing them here from time to time, sometimes maybe even in bulk, so you don´ t get bored :). Here is today´ s share:

The papers are by Canvas Corp Brands, from my DT time there and I´ ve added a half pearl from my junk drawer and a precut glitter snowflake as a focal point. A Christmas card always can use some glitter, if you as me.

I really, really like the simplicity of this particular card. Also the colours. Too bad I don´ t have more of this gorgeous paper in my stash. It makes fab xmas card backgrounds!

Hoping your week will be a good one! See you on Wednesday with a Xmas card tutorial share and also stop by later this week for more card shares :).
