Holiday cheer #2

Written by:



Handmade card with Santa Claus and a snowman, colored with alcohol markers.

Materials and tools


How to

First I cut the shape with the cutting die “Sewn rectangles” using the largest one available.

Next, I cut the rounded circle in the top-middle of the rectangular shape. Subsequently, I applied the embossing folder “Ornaments hung design” to the rectangular shape without the circle.

Then, using first the “tumbled glass” ink and then the “blueprint sketch” I started shading over the circle. Then, using the “starts” from the Sizzix die “Star gift bag” I cut the stars on the circle.

In the meantime, I printed Stanta Claus, the snowman and the pines of the clear stamp “‘Tis the Season”. Once printed, I started coloring them with alcohol markers.

Once the molds were colored, I cut them with the matching cutting dies.

Then I printed the writing “Sending holiday cheer” and cut it using the “Stitched rect word wind”.

I also cut one little house from the “landscape border”.

In the final stage I assembled the card putting in popup the rectangular background with the circle in the middle glued. Santa, the snowman and the pines are put on the card using the 3d foam tape. Then I added 3 stars in the sky, the little house and the banner with the wish in popup.

I completed the postcard with a round stamp on the back saying “Handmade with ”.
