Warmest Wishes Stepper Card

A vintage style Christmas card for you today.


The base of the card is a piece of Foundations Milk Card, which has been stamped using the new Heartfelt Creations Delicate Holly Swirls Pre Cut stamp set and a clear Perfect Medium pad. Cosmic Shimmer Detail Gold Embossing Powder was added and heat set. 

The leaves were coloured in using a Forest Moss Distress Ink Pad and a water brush. Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red Pearlescent PVA was then added to the stamped berries. The card base was then left overnight for the "berries" to dry. The next day the card was scored to form the steps and Forest Moss Distress Ink was blended around all of the edges.



The two circular elements were made by stamping some of the stamps in the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Sentiment Circles Pre Cut stamp set (gosh, that was a bit of a mouthful!). The same Milk card was used as before and the Forest Moss Distress Ink was blended through circle dies used to cut out the stamped images. The two circle toppers were then mounted onto the decorative red mats, which were die cut using the Spellbinders Picot Edge die set. 


The die cut tree was made using the Heartfelt Creations Banner & Trees die set.


The bow was tied using a piece of two-tone red ribbon. The holly swirl was cut using the Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Add On die set. The poinsettias were stamped using the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Poinsettia Pre Cut stamp set and die cut using the Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur die. 


Happy crafting!
