Christmas Cards

It’s Pink & Main week here on the Therm O Web blog! And today I am super excited to share some woolly adorable holiday projects with you featuring Pink & Main’s Fa La Llama stamps and dies and one of our newest colors of Therm O Web’s Glitz Glitter Gel. First up is a pair of holiday cards with a quick and easy masked stenciled design.

To begin, stamp the images onto Luxury White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then color the images with Copic markers. Die-cut all the images using the coordinating dies.

Cover the front of an A2 card base with plaid patterned paper. Cut a smaller layer from Luxury White cardstock. To create the mask, cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of scrap paper or copy paper. Using a pencil and ruler, mark the center of the paper. Place the middle-sized die from the Large Oval die set so that it is centered on the mask. Hold the die in place with Purple Tape, and then die cut the paper. Remove the center oval.

Pixie Spray

Place the mask down onto the white cardstock, and hold it in place with Purple Tape. Spray the back of the stencil with Pixie Spray, and then let the spray dry for several minutes until it is tacky to the touch.

Place the stencil down onto the masked paper. Spread silver Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil using the Stencil Pal tool.

Remove the stencil immediately and wash it and the tools in warm soapy water. Liftoff the mask. Set the cardstock aside to dry.

Adhere the cardstock panel to the card base. Add a thin strip of patterned paper across the bottom of the oval design. Stamp a sentiment onto a strip of Luxury White cardstock. Add the sentiment strip and the stamped images to the card using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive.

This masked design is so simple, yet really striking with the shine and texture of the Glitz gel.  I love how it adds dimension without adding too much bulk and keeps cards flat for mailing. The gel also looks amazing on colored cardstock, which I’ll show next on a pair of festive holiday tags.

Copic Markers

These gift tags make a great matching set to the cards, and utilize many of the same elements…. fun plaid patterned paper, Copic coloring, simple sentiment strips, and silver stenciled dots.

To make the tags, die-cut the largest tag shape from Red Velvet cardstock. Lay the tags side by side and place the dot stencil down onto them. *The stencil should still be tacky from the Pixie Spray added before. Spread silver Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil using the Stencil Pal. Remove the stencil, and set the tags aside to dry. Wash the stencil and tools with warm soapy water.

Then simply add blocks of leftover patterned papers, stamped images, and sentiment strips. Using the iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive helps when adhering elements to slightly textured surfaces, liked the gelled tags. Add twine to the top of the tags to tie.

Enjoy!
