Video: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Sweet & Graphic Holiday Cards

by Lydia Evans

Hello everyone and happy Friday! It's Lydia here. Today, I'm sharing a couple of graphic and sweet one-layer holiday cards.

DSC01490Let's get started!

For the first card, there was no masking involved so I started by stamping a fun cluster of triangles from Sohcahtoa Stamp Set using Pink Pearl, Dew Drops, Minty Mint, and Limestone Inks. As these colors are all very little, I could then stamp over them with darker inks and not have a problem. I then added in some holly using two of the smaller images from Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set. I used just the base layer of the single holly leaf and berry to keep on with the graphic look.

Next, I used Crimson Ink for the berry and Shadow Creek Ink for the leaf. Once these were stamped, I doodled around them using a black fine line pen to give a fun look. To finish, I added a sentiment from the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.

DSC01491The second card took a little more time but I just love the look of the pale holly with the darker triangles. So, to start, I stamped the holly leaves and berries into place using Pink Pearl and Minty Mint Inks. Once these were stamped, I then doodled around these to give the same effect as the first card.

DSC01492I then masked off the images with masks created using masking paper and Peaceful Wreath Coordinating Dies. Once the dies were in place, I then stamped in a cluster of triangles using Silver Lake, Gray Denim, Cloudy Night, and Charcoal Gray Inks. To finish, I added a sentiment from the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.

To see how these two cards came together please watch the video below or over at YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!
