{Spotlight Project} Deepti Creates A Christmas Card Set

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Deepti here and welcome to my sixth spotlight feature. With Christmas right around the corner, I am sure you must be is a rush to create as many Christmas cards as possible. So, today I decided to show you how to make some quick Christmas cards.

I have used the October Stamp set JoyfulHoliday Sketches: Christmas Bells, and Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles. For the sentiment, I used Oh! Christmas Tree.

So here's a look into all the finished cards together... The idea is to keep the color scheme simple and use patterned paper to add to the design.

Here's a step-by-step photo tutorial to showcase the process of making this card set...

Cut the patterned paper in various shapes for the card design. For example, I cut out a circle in one, and in another I used a scalloped border die.

 Heat emboss all the images on a white card stock in gold embossing powder and fussy cut.

Adhere all these pieces together with the patterned paper on card base using glue stick and some foam adhesives.

Stamp the sentiment and cut it into banners. Adhere the sentiment banners on the cards, and dress the cards with some red gemstones.

Here's the finished look once again :) This time I will showcase every card individually.

That finishes my sixth spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy crafting!
