Christmas Tree Card using Shaped Background Stamping with May Park
Posted on 27 November 2017
Happy Monday! It's May here with a fun Christmas card that I created using a couple of my favorite stamping techniques: background stamping and shaped stamping.
I also used some non-holiday stamps and non-traditional holiday colors for a unique look.
I started by drawing a triangle shape with a pencil and ruler on an A2 size white panel. Then I stamped the images from the following stamp sets: Playful Animal Friends 2, Festive Llama, and Merry & Bright using 5 different ink colors.
When you create a background by mixing images, it's important to stamp larger images first and fill in the gaps with smaller images later. After stamping is done, I added some dots using the fine tip of the markers in 4 different colors.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the December Days Stamp Set at the bottom of my Christmas tree with grey ink.
Next, I mounted my stamped panel on an A2 size green top folding card base with 3M foam tape to give dimension. I finished off my card with adding some gemstones in the center of each snowflake image.
That's all for today. Hope my card inspired you to create a Christmas card with non-holiday stamps and non-traditional holiday colors.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Happy crafting!
