I have a sweet tutorial on the papermilldirect blog today.
If you haven’t seen Papermilldirect’s Materica card range I really recommend you take a look this cardstock is absolutely beautiful. Its so lovely and I have used some for this Christmas card.
To make this card you will need:
You will also need:
- Christmas stamps
- Copic markers or any colouring medium of your choice
- Clear embossing powder
- White embossing powder
- Heat gun
- Versamark ink
- Grid background stamp
- Enamel dots
To make your card base you will need a sheet of Clay Materica Card 250gsm. I cut this down to 4 1/4 inches and scored along the middle at 5 1/2 inches. Fold in half and you now have your card base.
I then stamped my Christmas images onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and I coloured them in with my copic markers and cut them out.
I then cut down a piece of vellum and stamped the grid background stamp onto the vellum using versamark ink, I then added some clear embossing powder and melted this with my heat gun. Once this is done I added some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm to the back of the vellum and adhered this onto my card front. I then adhered down the bear onto the vellum.
For the sentiment I used a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment down using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
To finish the card off I added some white enamel dots.
I love how simple this card looks and you can also make a few in bulk to save you time.
I hope you have fun making some Christmas cards and you will be spoiled for choice with the gorgeous Materica range.
Thank you so much for reading
