I started by cutting 2 sheets of cardstock into quarters – one white and one kraft. Then I inked them up with the ornamental pines stamp with Lawn Fawn jalapeno and artichoke inks. I did 2 of each color on each color of cardstock for variety and contrast to see what I liked best. In the end, they are all super fun and sparkly! I love them all!
I took half of them and spread transfer gel Blanco through the coordinating stencil and set them aside to dry. I couldn’t wait to try out this new foil! It’s so gorgeous in the package, I could only imagine the next level it would take these fun trees to!
Then for the other half of my backgrounds, I used the stencil and spread glitz glitter gel through it. I did half gold and half silver. I paired the gold with the artichoke ink and silver with the jalapeno. I felt like the tones matched really well that way. Side note, I use the same thought process with the foiling.
While everything was drying I die cut the sentiments from the coordinating die set from white and red cardstock. Half of my cards have Happy Holidays and the other half have Merry Christmas. For each card, I cut the sentiment from red once and white twice. Then I used my ultra bond liquid pen to adhere all the layers together.
Woohoo! With everything dry and my laminator heated up, I ran the set for foiling through my laminator. I seriously sat and played with them in the light for a minute after removing the foil. They are gorgeous!!!
Next, I used the second-to-largest Pink & Main layered rectangle die to cut all of my card fronts down. Then I lined the back of each one with foam tape and adhered them to white card bases.
Finally, I used my Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen to adhere the sentiments to the center of each card front and my set of cards is all finished. Here is a look at the kraft to white background comparison. I love them both and couldn’t really choose a favorite.
That new glitter foil is absolutely stunning and a perfect match for these fun trees too!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and are inspired to create something wonderful to share with someone!
