Welcome to the Maker Forte blog! Kim here from Stamping Imperfection to share a quick Christmas card in traditional colors that would be easy to mass produce!
I’ve used the Nordic Watercolor Builder stamp set and the Holy Christmas Sentiments set to create this card. Additionally, you can see that I’ve also used Palm Tree and Tiptree Jam inks for a traditional Christmas colored card.
I did add some gold details to add a special touch. I’m a firm believer that every card should have some sparkle and shine!
For this card, I chose the small stem of leaves and stamped it twice with each inking. The result is a dark and light set of green leafy fronds along the edge.
I love the look that this gives. It’s relaxed and it doesn’t need to be perfect. It almost has the feel of being along the edge of a Christmas tree or wreath.
I’ve added some red berries using a Q-Tip with the Tiptree Jam ink. The gold berries are actually golden rose paper glaze. You can see that I’ve added some extra gold by heat embossing the sentiment from the Holy Christmas Sentiments set in gold as well.
I finished off the card with 3 Crown Jewel Gems in Roller Skate red. How pretty are these gems? Every time I place an order, I order the gems in a new color!
The metallic red cardstock mat adds a nice finishing touch as well!
