A Christmas Card

by Sharon Jeffs

A Christmas Card


  • Paper and Cardstock
  • Stamps
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
    • Tim Holtz Distress ink pad, Barn Door     ( RAN-DP-Barn   $5.00)
    • Tim Holtz Distress ink refill, Peeled Paint     ( RAN-DR-Paint   $4.00)
  • Embellishments
    • Kaisercraft Round Rhinestones, Silver     ( KAI-RH-750   $2.49)
  • Tools
  • Adhesives


  • From the white card cut out the following pieces ...
    • 5 inch by 5 inch
    • 4 inch by 4 inch
    • 3 inch by 3 inch
    • 10 inch by 5 inch
  • Fold the 10 inch by 5 inch in half to create the card base.

  • Punch the corners and borders of the 5 inch square piece of card.

  • Place a drop of the green ink onto a non-porous surface (I use my acrylic block for this).
    Use a water filled brush, water down the ink droplet and paint along the holly leaves on the border.
    Put aside to dry.

  • Place the 4 inch square piece of card into the embossing folder run through a cuttlebug machine to emboss.

  • Use the corner rounder to round off the corners of the 3 inch square piece.
    Ink up the stamp with the Barn Door inkpad and stamp onto the centre of this card piece.

  • Adhere four rhinestones to the centres of the four large snowflakes that border the stamp.

  • Attach the stamped layer to the centre of the embossed piece using foam squares.

  • Attach the embossed piece to the centre of the Holly Border piece of card using an adhesive of your choice.

  • Gently fold up the Holly leaves along the border then attach to the front of the card base.
