Hello Everyone! I am super excited to share my first solo post with you on the Studio Katia Blog.
I’m not sure about you but no matter how much I plan I always seem to not have enough Christmas cards and end up having to make more. This year I have been looking for ways to create some easy cards that I can create in bulk. The new Friends Of Winter Stamp set is perfect for this, especially the cute little snowman.
I have created these cards using minimal supplies and time.
To start off I stamped the snowmen onto some Bristol Smooth paper and coloured them using Prismacolor pencils, I used only one pencil per colour for quickness. I die cut them out using the coordinating dies and added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and buttons.
Whilst I waited for them to dry I die cut some more Bristol Smooth using the rectangle from the Dotted Patterns Set 1 and using a blending tool I did some basic inking using Distress Oxide in Broken China. I made some sparkle spray by adding some Perfect Pearls to water and spraying the pieces and blotting them off. Once dry I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Origami Winter set and stamped it on all 3 panels.
I created some A2 top folding notecards from some Neenah and using some Simple Stories paper in coordinating colours I trimmed them down to A2 and adhered them to the note cards. I added some dimension by popping them up with foam tape and adhered the rest of the card together.
I still thought the cards needed something and the new Snow Crystals are perfect for this type of card to just add that little something, and of course they make the perfect snowflakes 🙂
The 3 cards took me very little time to create and you can cut the time down even further by not using glossy accents, I know these will be my cards for bulk making this holiday season.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a great day.
