2 Easy Holiday Cards with Festive Tree Stamp and Die Set
I found the best way to make the most of this Festive Tree Stamp Set was to carefully select your colors. You could choose coordinating colors from the same color family as I did with my first card or contrasting colors like my second.
I love how, in some places, the stem is lighter than the leaf itself.
As I knew I would be die-cutting out this tree, I wanted to ensure I lined it up properly as it is multi-layered.
I, therefore, took an A2 panel of white cardstock, die cut out the tree from the center, and then placed the cut out back into the cardstock again before placing it in my MISTI, ready for stamping. This way, I know the die-cut will perfectly align with the stamped image.
For my background, I used another panel of white cardstock and ink blended Pastel Sunrise, Canyon Clay, and Burnt Red Crisp Dye Ink using a Large Ink Blending Brush. I added a few splatters of Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray, then overlaid the tree on top with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
To tie in with the gold splatters, I heat embossed the ‘Warmest Wishes' in Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and die cut it out, popping it on top of the tree with more tape. I finished with a few Antique Gold Sequins for a holiday decor look.
The stamp set also has several additional stamps that you use to stamp and die cut your own baubles too!
I used the leftover die-cut from the first card, and overlaid it onto another panel of white cardstock, and placed them in my MISTI. I stamped the tree again through the ‘window', this time using contrasting colors – Mountain Mist Crisp Dye Ink and Wisteria Crisp Dye Ink.
Once I removed the window, I ink blended it with Wisteria around the edge of the window, fading out towards the edge of the panel. I also added several splatters of Sea Glass Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray. I added lots of foam tape and placed it over the top of the stamped panel for a little dimension (TIP! You could also create a shaker card this way!).
The sentiment was heat embossed in Antique Silver Crisp Embossing Powder, die cut, and popped up over the tree in the window area. I finished with a few iridescent crystals here and there.
Not visible in the picture – I stamped some of those sub-sentiments from the set inside the card. You can check out the full video as part of my Stylish Cardmaking Techniques with Jenny video.
