Christmas in July

Technique Tuesday 

July 20, 2019

Put on some Christmas music, because we are Celebrating Christmas in July at Technique Tuesday. I have to admit, it was fun to create a few Christmas cards...even in July.

For my first card, I started by die cutting the Wonderful Wreath Die from cardstock to make a stencil. I also die cut the Essential Stitched Label from kraft cardstock.

Next, I inlaid my die cut back into the negative piece and created a stencil. I attached this to my craft label and taped off the bow. 

I then added Glitz Glitter Gel in Grass Green by Gina K Designs onto my wreath.

I let this dry for a bit and then I removed the stencil.

I attached the stencil again, this time adding Glitz Glitter Gel in Red Velvet to the bow area.

I once again removed the stencil and let the Glitz Glitter Gel dry.

Next, I attached another die cut Wreath back over my glitter to define my lines and to help the wreath stand out.

To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set at the bottom of my card panel. 

For my next card, I die cut my wreath from a piece of white cardstock and inlaid it back into my card panel.

Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Set onto my white panel. I then die cut the bow from red cardstock and inlaid the pieces back into my wreath.

To finish my card, I attached everything to my card base. This card really came together quickly. I think it would be a perfect card to make a few of to have ready at Christmas time.
