Today’s tutorial will feature several Imagine products, Delicata, StazOn, and Vertigo. Using silhouette style die cut creates a stunning yet quick and easy Christmas Card.
Time: 30 Minutes
Trim black cardstock to 6 ½” x 9” and fold in half. Center die on the front panel of the card base and die cut.
Leave the die in place and stamp the starry background with Delicata Golden Glitz.
Use a Fantastix Brush Tip to brush in details left open in the die. Photo shows the die removed after this step.
Trim a section of Taffeta Vertigo to 2” x 6 3/8”. Use an Ink Blusher to build layers of color in StazOn Blazing Red and Midnight Blue. As the color layers blend, the red, purple, and blue along with the Taffeta Vertigo creates a stunning night sky.
Adhere Vertigo behind the opening in the die with small dots of On Point Glue. I glued around the edge and behind each small portion of the die scene. Trim white cardstock to 6 3/8” x 8 ¾” and fold in half. Adhere to the inside back of the card with Tear It! Tape.
Apply Tear It! Tape to the front inside of the card and fold card closed. This allows the card to compensate for the two layers of cardstock.
Stamp Oh Holy Night sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder.
