Dear Santa…. by Mandy C


‘tis the start of all  things festive. Here’s my first Christmas inspired card for this year.


Mandy’s Must-haves ~ these are the items I always use in my projects


Card Blank
White Card to make the background on
Christmas Washi Tape


·       Cut your background white card very slightly smaller than your card blank.

·       Spray the Pure Sunshine and Lime Green inks onto the background. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Using the clock stencil and the Vintage Photo Distress paints, stencil half the clock onto the right hand side of the card. I went on to add some of the cream acrylic through the stencil after moving it very slightly down the background. Add a bit of the cream acrylic to the background using some Cut and Dry. The paint blends the ink sprays together to create a lovely vintage background.

·       Leave to one side to completely dry.

·       Meanwhile, stamp your images out of the ‘Christmas Wish’ set of stamps. I chose to use the santa, the Dec 25th  calendar page, the candy cane and the ticket. I stamped these out in black Archival ink. Blast with the heat tool and then colour with watercolours and your waterbrush.

·       Cut out your images once dry.

·       Take your background card and stamp the large ‘calop’ label onto the middle of your card using the grey StazOn.

·       Add your washi tape to the bottom of the card then position your stamped images onto the card, where you would like them to go and then glue with your Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

·       Add some stamping with the holly from the ‘Sleigh Bells’ set of stamps, around the edge of the card using the grey StazOn.

·       Edge the card with Distress paint in vintage photo and then with the grey StazOn. Once dry adhere to the card blank.

·       Stamp out the ‘Dear Santa’ words and glue onto your card.
