The holidays will be here before you know it, so prep ahead now and make your own homemade Christmas cards! Instead of creating a simple one, check out this project for a super-easy Stamped Christmas Card. It's an easy christmas craft that will take mere minutes to make, and the stamped art is so cool!
- Old Manila File Folder
- Red Acrylic Paint
- Foam Paint Brush or Paint Brush
- Paper Towel
- Embossing Powder & Ink
- Heat Gun
- Donna Salazar's Lacey Goodness Stamp
- Donna Salazar Acrylic Stamp Block
- 2 Diecut Trees from scrap paper
- "Merry Christmas" Stamp ($1 spot at Michael's a couple years ago)
- Black Ink
- 4" x 5.25" piece of White Cardstock for the inside.
- Cut the file folder down to 4.25" wide from the fold. Then cut the folder card to 5.5" tall--you should be able to get two 4.25" x 5.5" finished card bases from one file folder. Reserve the scrap for your sentiment.
- Stamp the Lacey Goodness stamp on the card front using embossing ink. Sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set.
- Once the embossed image cools, paint the entire card (inside and out) with the red paint. It is okay if it is "rustic" -- that is crafty speak for "splotchy".
- Rub the embossed image with the other side of the foam brush or with a paper towel to remove some of the paint so the image will show through.
- Add the trees to the front of the card.
- Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of manila folder and tear one edge. Ink and add to the card using 3D foam adhesive.
