Hi crafty friends, Lieschen here excited to share with you a fun card tutorial for a Christmas card. Today's card features Sizzix Stars and Light embossing folder and Variety Sentiments # 2 Dies.
I started by making an A2 card base then I trimmed a piece to use as my front panel. On this piece, I used the Stars and Lights embossing folder.
I used an embossing pen on the embossing folder to ink wires and the outlines of all the light bulbs. Then, when I ran it through my die cut machine I used a platinum embossing powder to emboss them.
Then, I used Copic marker B93 to color the inside of each light bulb.
Once I was done coloring, I die cut one of the sentiments from the Variety Sentiments #2. I wanted glitter card stock to be my main focus so I glued some Scor-Tape sheet behind the glitter card stock, this way it will be easy to die cut the thin sentiments and glued them into place.
I used a colored card stock for shadow effect, glitter card stock for glimmer effect, and white, which was glued behind the glitter card stock for dimension.
Next, it was time to glue the sentiment on the embossed background. I used the Make Art Station and the magnets to hold the front panel in place while I decided and then glued the sentiment where I wanted it.
Once I had glued my sentiment on the front panel piece, I used some foam adhesive to tape it to the card base.
I used another colored card stock, which I glued to the card base, that would compliment the front panel piece. Once the card was assembled and the front panel was taped to the card base, I added some Stickles on the letter "I" since I misplaced the small die cut for it.
Now this card is ready to be mailed to a loved one this holiday season! I hope you have enjoyed today's card as much as I did making it! Have an amazing crafty day, until next time!
