Hello! Good to see you, I hope your weekend is off to a great start. This card features a stamp set from Colourific’s Christmas release and I wanted to show you how versatile the stamps are. You can easily stretch your Christmas stamps and make them go further with a variety of designs and occasions. Today I created a beautiful birthday card using the present stamp from the Babys 1st Christmas stamp set.

To start off, I applied Tonic Nuvo embellishment mousse through a striped stencil. This is one I created myself with my Silhouette Cameo (you can find the blog post about it at the end of the post), but you could use any stencil you have to hand. Whilst you set the panel one side to dry, stamp the stacked presents onto white card in alcohol friendly ink – for example Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Using a selection of alcohol markers in a variety of colours, colour in the presents. For additional detail, I used a white gel pen for added lines and dotes along the bows. Then fussy cut this out and foam-mount onto the front of the card panel once dry.
The panel was adhered to a white card base. For the sentiment I a heat embossed this on black card using WOW! Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder and foam mounted the sentiment onto the card. Lastly, a few sequins were added for embellishments.
