Plaid Flocked Christmas Cards

I started things off today with a piece of red cardstock, the Newton’s Nook gingham stencil, some transfer gel, and black velvet flock transfer sheets. I adhered the stencil to the red cardstock and spread the transfer gel through the stencil with my palette knife and stencil pal. Once it was dry and my laminator was heated up I ran it through.

Here’s a look at the flocked red cardstock and the negative that you are left with. I had never tried this before but I couldn’t resist taking the negative and placing one of the layers from the Newton’s Nook Plaid stencil set on it and spreading silver glitz glitter gel through that! So cool!!!

While that was drying, I cut the main tag shape from white cardstock and vellum, twice each. I heat embossed the Reindeer Rollcall image and some snowflakes on the vellum and attached the layers together with ribbon and baker’s twine through the hole in the top.

With my plaid layers dry and ready to go, I die-cut them from the largest Frameworks die and popped them up on green card bases with 3D foam tape. Then I adhere the tags to those with the same foam.

Aren’t these fantastic! Seriously, flocking is one of my most favorite products! I love the texture and especially the reaction when I give cards that are fuzzy to touch. It’s fabulous!

Another way you can use your flock transfer sheets is to die-cut them directly without transferring them with gel. For this pair of cards, I used the Pink & Main plaid layering dies.

There are two dies in the set so I cut each one from the flock, one red and one green. Then I cut the opposite from cardstock. So I have two cards with red and green plaid but different layers are flocked.

Next. I cut kraft cardstock and inked it up lightly with gathered twigs of distress oxide ink. Then I spritzed the panels with water and flicked watered down ground espresso distress oxide on them.

Then I used Ultra Bond Liquid Glue pen and XL tape runner to adhere the layers together. I die-cut sentiments from Pink & Main as well and adhered them down.

Then I finished this design off with a scattering of white pearls from Pink & Main across the designs. Notice how the plaid layers are opposite on each card. I put the flocked layer on top for both cards so you get the full fuzzy effect and also a slightly different look from the plaid.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
