Hello! It’s Jill from Jill Cameron Creations. I’m sharing a super cute slimline Christmas card using the Bah Humbug Stamp by Jess Fancisco for Maker Forte. This super cute stamp set needed a super cute card to show it off so let’s jump in and see how to create this slimline Christmas card.
All of the products used in this slimline Christmas card is listed at the bottom of the post.
Slimline Christmas Card
First, I started with a 3 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used four different shades of blue ink to create a gradient color covering about three-quarters of the panel. Ink blend the colors from lightest to darkest and then darkest to lightest. Expect some paper warping because the paper is going to get saturated.
To blend out the lightest color of blue into the white, I used a little bit of white pigment ink to soften the lightest blue line.
Next, I used the BEAUTIFUL Kaleidoscope Powder in the color Pluto to create splatters all over the background. I highly recommend a splatter box so you don’t coat your entire work area with blue dots.
I set the panel aside to dry while I stamped and colored the Christmas tree.
The size of the tree in the Bah Humbug stamp set is the perfect fit for a slimline Christmas card. I used Copic markers to color the tree. Color the edges and under each layer in the darkest color the move in closer and closer with lighter colors.
I also colored dark around the lighting bug and the garland to create a little bit of a shadow. Then, I fussy cut the tree out with scissors. Be sure to color the edge with a black water based marker.
Once the background was dry, I ran the panel through my die cutting machine to flatten it out. When I looked at the panel I thought it needed a little bit of something else. I used the Sending Wishes background stamp and stamped it in white pigment ink. I used my heat tool to dry the pigment ink. Mainly so I didn’t smear it everywhere which I’m prone to do. 🙂
Lastly, I stamped the large Bah Humbug in black pigment ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. This slimline Christmas card is large enough to support a large sentiment with a shadow behind it. I did this with my Silhouette Cameo PixScan mat.
The slimline panel is glued down to a card base and then I used liquid glue to adhere the tree flat to the panel and popped up the sentiment with foam tape.
