Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with these super simple super fast Christmas Pocket Cards! I also do some foiling without a laminator!
I am so excited to still be doing this series this year, definitely helped me to have my cards ready without having to scramble during the holidays. So join us each month and hopefully it will inspire you to work through them all year!
For the step by step process for creating the pockets check out the video HERE!
I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers I used my Scan N Cut to cut the puppy images out.
I cut a panel of 110lb Neenah white cardstock to 5 1/2 X 4 inches, stamped and masked the scene stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the scene with Copic markers. I was not happy with the coloring at all and ended up cutting the panel down to 5 1/2 X about 3 inches.
If you want to make scene cards but are not sure about drawing your own the “Spring Scenes” stamp set is perfect. There are so many options with this one set for perfect scenes every time.
I used the dies to cut out a border on the top and bottom of a 5 1/2 X 4-inch panel on the 5 1/2 inch side. I ended up making the panel 5 1/2 by about 3 3/4 inches.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a circle I cut out of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. The “& puppy dog kisses” is all one piece and I thought it would be cute to have the sentiment follow the curve of the circle instead of cutting it down. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the entire sentiment positioned and stamp it all at one time.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose, used a white gel pen for their eyes, and added just a little Glossy Accents to the puppy’s bow and nose!
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images super quick with Copic Markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out, I used the dies to cut out ric rac and border the back panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added a few enamel dots and added just a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the puppy’s bow!
I love making all different types of cards my favorite is interactive cards, but sometimes I like to make a few all at one time to have on hand, especially masculine cards and I thought this kit was perfect for that.
I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, and I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color.
I drew in lines for the cabana, horizon, and beach with a pencil before I started ink blending and then colored the images. After I finish coloring and blending I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I added the glossy accents, the Sparkle Pen for the reflection of the sunset on the water. After it dried I adhered the panel to the card base and used a black Zig Marker to outline the wires on the string lights.
Hi Everyone! Luci here with a single layer card using the Brand New Release from SFL “Winter Fairies” and “Fairy House“! How adorable are these sets! I colored the images and created the scene with Copic Markers, and I finished up the card by stamping the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink added a few sequins and you can’t have Fairies without some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen!
I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color. I drew in some hills with a pencil before I started coloring. I colored the panel. Once I finished coloring I adhered the panel to the card base, added a few sequins and used the Sparkle Pen on tops of hills, the roof, the white parts of her hat, and the accents on her dress and shoes.
For all of these cards, I used the Nuvo Drops over the stencils and let it dry about an hour in a half to two hours.
This card is a 5 1/2 inch square card base. I used the largest heart die and cut it out the abstract stencil, then I used the second to the smallest heart for the sentiment that I cut out from white cardstock, I cornered the right edge of the card base. I stamped the sentiment on the small heart. I adhered the heart onto the card base in the center and then popped up the sentiment heart in the middle of the large heart. to finish it up I used some sequins.
This card I made similar to the first except its A2 size or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch card base in pink and I used a piece of pattern paper that I cut down to 4 X 5 1/4 inches for the back panel. I cut out the largest flower from a stenciled piece and then the second smallest one for the sentiment in white. Stamped the sentiment on the smaller flower. Layered it onto the card base and finished it off with a few sequins.
My final card is A2 sized and I used a black card base. I cut down the stenciled piece to 4 X 5 1/2 inch and adhered it to the card base. I used a piece I smeared the stone drops on to cut out the hello sentiment from the die and a piece of black card stock for the shadow. I adhered it to the center of the card. I used some black sequins and I used the sparkle pen all over the sentiment and shadow.
