Pink Christmas Card using Home For The Holidays SOA

posted in: Blog, Jeni 1

Hi, it’s Jeni with a pink Christmas Card for the WCMD Challenge Inspiration.  You can enter your card HERE for a chance to win a gift voucher for The Little Paper Tree.  I didn’t have any plan when I started making this card I just wanted to use the stamps and dies in the Home For The Holidays Stamp Of Approval box and pink inks!


Video Tutorial

The video tutorial also shows my bloop/craft accident and you can see how I fixed it below.  The video is up on YouTube.  You can see it HERE. Now onto the card…



Stamping Background

I took a piece of Catherine Pooler white card and used one of the stamps from the Cozy Borders stamp set and stamped with Party Dress, Be Mine and It’s A Girl ink colours going up the card to create an ombre look.



I diecut two tags from the Concord & 9thHoliday Cheer Tags die set and used a Nuvo Blending Brush and It’s A Girl ink to add some soft colour.  For some more interest I stamped half the snowflake from the Tiny Wishes stamp set along one side.  The sentiment is one of the bauble dies from Tiny Tags die set with a Warm Wishes stamp in Midnight ink.  I adhered everything to my card panel and wanted to add some sparkle – since this is for Christmas.  This is where my bloop happens.


Using Nuvo Drops

I haven’t used my bottle of Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops in ages – and I think some glitter has dried inside the nozzle.  Using a needle to try I tried to unclog it and I SHOULD have taken it to the sink and let some hot water run over the nozzle – but I didn’t.  What I did was squeezed the bottle hard, and all the medium still in the bottle popped out over my scrap piece of card (Luckily my card front was fine).

I used a stylus to add the drops to the card – and my pink Christmas Card is finished!


Bonus Card

As promised on the video I have the finished glitter card here.  I scrapped as much of the “paste” as I could and used a palette knife to cover another card front with the Turkish Delight stencil and let this dry overnight.

Paste Through Stencil

Because the scrap card I was using had some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide on it, I used the same colour on one of the word die cuts. I diecut two of the Merry and Bright dies and used a Nuvo Blending Sponge with Picked Raspberry on one of them.  I left this to dry then adhered the white one slightly off set, then adhered them to my card.
