Make A Cute Christmas Card in Front of the TV

You might make the entire card in front of the screen. But I thought if you cut all your cardstock, then stamped all your images, you could cozy up and catch your favourite flick while colouring up a storm!

Here are all the measurements, supplies and steps to make it today.

Cuttin’ It Up!

  • Basic White Thick cardstock – 6″ x 6″, scored at 3″, 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Balmy Blue DSP – 2 3/4″ x 5 3/4″

Let’s Make It!

1.Fold Basic White card and crisp up fold line with your bone folder.

2. Stamp the Basic White panel with the mouse and lamp standard with Memento Ink. Stamp words along top of panel. TIP: If you have the Stamparatus, put all your stamps onto the plates and stamp several card fronts at the same time. Colour with the following Stampin’ Blends colours:

  • coat – Balmy Blue
  • scarf and bow – Real Red
  • lamp standard – So Saffron, Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green
  • mouse – Gray Granite and Flirty Flamingo TIP: Put the pink on first, then colour over it with the Light Gray Granite

3. Shade along the left side of the lamp and mouse with Light Pool Party. Add “snow” along bottom with little marks then go over the marks with the Color Lifter so they fade and blend a little bit.

4. Glue coloured panel to the Balmy Blue DSP then to the front of the folded card.

And just like that, you’re done!

The really important thing to remember when you’re colouring with the Stampin’ Blends is to use the Basic White Thick cardstock. We all like to economize every once in awhile, but it makes the difference between great and AMAZING!
