Quick and Easy Holiday Cards

Hello everyone! I’m back with several card videos today featuring quick and easy holiday cards using some of our new stamps from this season. A few of the cards were featured in our recent releases. However, they’re accompanied by videos today(YAY!!)! Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Poinsettia Banner on Kraft

For my first card, I used our Poinsettia Banner stamp set.

I started off by stamping the Poinsettia Banner image and sentiment onto white cardstock using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I colored in the poinsettias, foliage and banner with Tombow Dual Tip markers (#885, 296, 133 and 95). Once I finished coloring, I die cut the image using the coordinating die.

Next I took an A2 kraft card panel and swiped some Warm Hazelnut Dye Ink across the entire card front. Then I added stitching to the panel using the two larges dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) Die set. I adhered the panel onto a side folding cardbase and then popped up my main image onto the panel. Lastly, I embellished the card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Holly Branch Border Card

For my next card I created a festive border using our Holly Branch set.

I stamped the outline holly branch in a border pattern onto an A2 card panel using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I stamped the solid images within the outline image using the outline image as a guide to easily add stamped color onto the holly clusters. The inks that I used to stamp the clusters are Soft Garden Dye, Valentine Red Dye and Warm Hazelnut Dye Inks. Next I stamped the sentiment from the same set in our Noir Dye Ink.

I created a top folding card base and added Yellow Gold Burnished Foil Tape to the top and bottom edges. Next I trimmed my stamped panel at the top and bottom edges and mounted it onto my base. Lastly I embellished my card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Two Folk Art Christmas Tree Cards

For my blue Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I started off by stamping the large tree image onto white cardstock (A2 size) with our True Navy Dye Ink. Then I embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Next I sponged on different shades of ink (Cali Blue Dye, Miami Cool Dye, Italian Denim Dye and Grape Crush Dye) onto the white areas surrounding my tree. Then I added stitching to the edges of the panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched (Large) Rectangles die set. Lastly, I mounted the panel onto a side folding base.

For my red Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I white heat embossed the tree onto a red card panel. Then I clear heat embossed some of the small elements in the areas surrounding the tree. Once my embossing was complete, I added stitching to the edges of my card and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 cardbase.

So that completes my holiday card post featuring four quick and easy cards that you can make last minute if needed. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays, everyone!!
