You can catch my video tutorial down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. I’ll be walking you through the kit and how I created a couple of the cards shown below.
Since most everything is covered in the video, down below I will briefly go over the supplies used.
For my first card, I used the markers included in the kit to color in some of the elements on the image. I have to admit, I absolutely love these tri-blend markers and have already ordered more!
I die cut the Happy Holidays from the gorgeous red holographic cardstock and layered onto the front of the card.
My next card is using the included embossing folder. I embossed it with the red holographic cardstock and WOW! what shine!
I added a thin frame die cut from gold glitter cardstock and the Tiding of Cheer as well.
This next card is included in the video. I used the Partridge die cut matte gold cardstock for the window of my shaker.
Isn’t that just magical!?
This next card is similar to the first except I heat embossed the snowflakes in the background.
After coloring the image and fussy cutting out, I added it to the front with foam squares.
I don’t post projects like this very often but it’s something I’ve always been meaning to do.
Using the Christmas ephemera, I decorated this vignette box.
Some of the elements are popped up with foam squares to separate it from the background.
I even included some mica flakes towards the bottom and lined it with Pine Twine.
I also added a sheet of acetate to the front to keep the mica flakes from spilling out.
This was such fun to make!
Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
