Ten Minute Christmas Card with Prima Modelling Paste.5:51:00 AM
Each year I try and make a quick Christmas card in the hopes of re-producing it into mass and sending it out to family and friends – well each year the task just seems bigger and bigger and in the end I am happy with nothing and just leave it all together!
But this year I think I may have a winning formula with some of my favourite products! I think we have a winner people (shouting voice)!
And the bonus this really is a ten minute card if you work in batches creating all the bits and pieces. Here’s how I am tackling this card design to make a quick production line…
Step 1Use your modelling paste and palette knife and create a textured background. Simple lift some paste with your palette and sweep it across the background cardstock until you are happy with the look. TIP: you want to leave some uncovered areas for the next step – so don’t cover the entire piece of cardstock with paste.
Step 2Once the paste is dry, mist your cardstock with 2 different colours of Color Bloom – I used Tea Stain and Storm Cloud in that order. Leave the mist to dry or dry with your heat gun.
Step 3Cut your background piece so that it fits onto the front of your folded card base and adhere it using double sided tape. Add sewing around the edge if so desired.
Step 4Cut Christmas trees using your Silhouette machine in smooth black cardstock to the size that will fit on the front of your folded card. Adhere the tree and add diamanté as decorations.
Step 5Add a punched circle from Teresa Collins paper as well as a sticker. Add scrunched up gold thread under sticker and finish off with an additional diamond to complete the grouping.
