Season's Greetings - December 12th with Cindy

Hi everyone!  Cindy here to share with you how I like to make cards. I'm sharing a Christmas card, the inside and envelope with you today.

Season's Greetings

 I like stamping on anything I possibly can. So today we are stamping and fussy cutting the image. It's a great way to make an embellishment!

Using fussy-cutting

Hi everyone!  Cindy here to share a Christmas card with you.

I started by stamping my image onto a scrap of white cardstock with my Misti. I knew I wanted to color in my image with markers and I wanted to be able to stamp the image again after coloring.  I made sure to line it the paper up on two sides of the Misti. Here's a quick tip - I like to write how the cardstock goes back in the Misti. I've messed up my fair share of images telling my self that I would remember. If your paper is die cut you can always write on the back of it.

After coloring the image in I put it back into the Misti and stamped it again. I wasn't worried about the berries and branches on the sides of the Poinsettia as I was going to cut them off. 

Once I've fussy cut the image I used a black marker outlining the image to get rid of any white cardstock that is showing.

I added a bit of blue banner under the Poinsettia and a scrap of Christmas paper that is torn on the side to finish my card front. I like to finish the inside of my cards with a white cardstock mat and a piece of the pattern paper from the outside.  

I like to finish the front of my envelopes with some stamping and embossing. This envelope was stamped with black ink and I used clear embossing powder

You know that we LOVE it when you share!

So, if you are inspired to make your own cards, layouts or projects - from Season's Greetings, a previous Christmas special, a Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit that you haven't quite used up or a new kit inspired by any one of our dozens and dozens of inspirational kits - you can share in these places:
See you tomorrow for more CKC inspiration!
