Mini Christmas Cards

In a bid to get cracking on with my Christmas cards I needed to design a Mini Christmas card. Of course I had to use my first ever Christmas stamp set......love love love!!!

The set is called Ice Skater and although she was designed with Christmas cards in mind, I think she is quite versatile. Try changing the colour pallet for a winter birthday card perhaps in shades of blue?

Here's my mini card

Here's a little step by step tutorial......quick and easy!

1 - Create a mat using the red card stock. Adhere double sided tape to the back and stick it to the white card blank.

2 -  Stamp the Ice Skater and the icicles directly onto the white card and cut to size.

3 - Colour the Iceskater with your Promarkers.

4 - Next add glitter to your images using the glue pen.

5 - Adhere foam pads to the back of the stamped images and place directly on top of the red mat layer.

6 - Stamp the banner image onto white card, cut it out then adhere it to the card using double sided tape.

7 - Punch out a snowflake and glue in place.

8 - Add a sparkly gem to the centre of the snowflake

Ta Da!! you now have completed a mini Christmas Card.
