Merry Creepmas by Mandy C



Tim Holtz Seasonal Silhouettes ~ Background and Holly
Watercolour pencils
Card blank
Co-ordinating backing paper


·       Take a piece of white card and using the sprays and the stencil, make a background. Once dry, cut out a 11cm square out.

·       Take the silhouette background and mask off all the words except Christmas and 25. Using Olive, stamp the image at the top of the card.

·       Using the holly stamp opposite corners using the Black Cherry StazOn.

·       Stamp the Nutcracker on a piece of card, colour him in…. I wanted him to have a wonky neck so I cut off the head and made a false neck using a little piece of card that I coloured the same colour as his face. Position onto card and glue into place.

·       Stamp the cat from the mini Halloween set and the merry Christmas from the mini holidays set.

·       Edge with chalk ink, adhere to a piece of backing paper, I’ve used red as this seemed to co-ordinate nicely. Edge the backing paper and then glue to a card blank.



  1. Love your alternative Christmas card - would be really good for a teenager.

  2. A brilliant card, I love the Nutcracker.
