Today is Christmas Card Camp Sneak Peek #3 and we are sticking with the clean and simple, red and green with a touch of bling theme.
Today’s card features one of the Reverse Confetti Vintage Ornaments stamps. This set includes 5 ornament stamps each with a different sentiment that can be used interchangeably with this card design. I stamped the ornament in Stampin’ Up! Emerald Envy and cut it out with the coordinating Vintage Ornament die.
TIP: To get a nice clean, clear image with a solid stamp: Before inking the stamp up with colored ink, ink it up with Versa Ink and then stamp it off a few times on a piece of scrap paper to remove most of the Versa Ink. You will get a nice clean image every time.
I also find it helpful to stamp on a foam piercing mat like the Sizzix Stampers Secret Weapon. It provides a little bit of cush that helps avoid those little empty sections that can sometimes happen.
Add a little Sparkle:
To add a little sparkle, I’ve added some glittery gold garland. I cut the garland out of gold glitter cardstock using the Reverse Confetti Circle Garland die. I also cut the top of the ornament from the glitter cardstock.
Sneak Peak Line-Up:
Here are the Christmas Card Camp cards I’ve revealed so far. Check back tomorrow for the final card. (We will be making 5 each of 4 designs for a total of 20 cards.) On Friday I will post a PDF with complete instructions and measurements for all 4 cards along with a supply list.
