Hello crafty friends! I have two Holiday-themed projects to share with you today featuring a mix of items from Pretty Pink Posh. I have always loved combining different stamp sets when creating cards because it helps you to design something that is totally different each time, therefore stretching your crafty stash.
The first project that I created was an A2 sized shadow box card. When upright, this card measures at 4″ across and 4.25″ tall. When folded, it measures at 4.25″ x 5.5″ and fits perfectly into an A2 sized envelope for mailing. This type of card is super easy to make!
- Create your box base by trimming two pieces of card stock to 7″ x 4.25″ and scoring them both at 1.5″ and 5.5″ on the long side.
- Next, die cut a shaped-window (I used a circle here) into one of the pieces, fold both pieces along the score lines and attach together.
- Add shelves on the inside (4.75″ long at whatever height you choose). Score at 3/8″ from each side to form tabs.
- Attach your images
I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers. For my images, I stamped some adorable penguins from the Penguin Pals Stamp Set, and some birds and a wintery branch from the Winter Woodland Stamp Set. I then used the coordinating Penguin Pals and Winter Woodland Die Sets to cut them out.
I added a snow drift to the front of my card, making sure to stamp my sentiment prior to attaching this piece. For my background, I blended some Pinkfresh Studio Seaside Ink onto a piece of 3 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of smooth white card stock.
For my second card, I created a one-layer card using the Mouse Friends Stamp Set combined with the adorable little Santa hats from the Penguin Pals Stamp Set. I used some Gina K. Designs Magic Masking Paper to mask my images while I stamped so that some images appeared as if they were in front of other objects. With my masking paper still in place, I blended a quick and easy background with some Salvaged Patina Distress Ink.
I love how cute these little mice look with their Christmas hats! Once again, I used Copic Markers to color my images. (Grays: W00, W1, W3, W5; Reds: R14, R46, R89).
Once I was done coloring, I trimmed my card down so that I could layer it with both some teal and white card stock pieces. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! If you liked these cards and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed! Wishing you all a lovely day!
