Vintage Style Christmas Cards featuring Scrapbook.com Exclusive Stencils, Stamps, Dies and Ink by Juliana MIchaels

Let's take a look at how this card came together.

Believe In The Magic Vintage Style Christmas Card featuring Scrapbook.com Exclusive Stencils, Stamps, Dies and Ink by Juliana MIchaels

To create the background, I placed the Little Boxes Stencil on top of a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Neenah Flat Card Front in Solar White. To hold the paper in place, I add a little adhesive to the backside of the paper and stick it down onto my crafting surface. I then position the stencil on top and use Therm O Web Purple Tape to hold it in place. I then applied Cardinal Red ink through the stencil using the awesome Scrapook.com Exclusive Ink Blending Tool with Domed Foam Applicator!

I wanted to add a bit more interest to the background, so I took the Dotted Stencil, tilted it slightly and applied Scrapbook.com's Exclusive Embossing Ink using the ink blending tool. I removed the stencil, sprinkled the paper with gold embossing powder and heat set it with a heat gun. Once I was finished with the stenciling, I trimmed the paper to 4 x 5.25 inches and inked the edges with Scrapbook.com Hybrid Ink in Leather.  To finish off the background, I added some machine stitching with brown thread.

For the deer die cut, I inked it up using Scrapbook.com Hybrid Ink in Dark Chocolate and Leather for the body. Black was added to the hooves and Sugar Cookie to the antlers.

The sentiment on this card is from the Big Bold Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped it using the Embossing Ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The sentiments in this set are just that...big and bold and perfect as the focal point of your card.

To add more interest to the card, I stamped a music note image onto a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Neenah Flat Card Front using Dark Chocolate Ink. I then die cut 2 stars using the Nested Star Die Set. I inked them with Pine Ink and added a bit of Leather Ink to the edges for a more distressed look.

For the final touch I tied a length of jute twine around the side of the card.

Now let's take a look at how I created my second card.

Santa Looks Attractive Vintage Style Christmas Card featuring Scrapbook.com Exclusive Stencils, Stamps, Dies and Ink by Juliana MIchaels

I knew I wanted to use the funny sentiment about Santa from the Christmas Fun Card Sentiments Stamp Set so I grabbed a Santa image and stamped it using Dark Chocolate Ink. I then used the Sponge Daubers to color the image using Cardinal Red for the suit, Pine for the gloves, and Black for the boots. This is a rather unconventional way to color and image, but I knew I was going to fussy cut it so I didn't mind if the ink went outside the lines. This technique made for a quick and easy way to color a stamped image. After I fussy cut the Santa, I inked the edges with an Ink Blending Tool and Leather Ink.

The stars on this card are created just like the stars I used on the first card.

For the background on this card, I used the Bold Stripes Stencil and tilted it to make diagonal stripes. It didn't quite cover the card front, so I just slide it up and down to get full coverage. Here I used Cardinal Red Ink with the Ink Blending Tool.

To continue with the background, I used the Little Boxes Stencil with Pine Ink and I also added the same gold embossed dots using the Dotted Stencil. Once all the stenciling was complete, I inked the edges with Leather Ink and added the same machine stitching to the edge.

  7. I am now going to have to try layering stencils. I thought the cards created were unique and fun without being bright and over the top. I love the Christmas light turn on and night market we have in our town to officially being the season.

  30. Your use of paper and colors are amazing! Love the old time feel of those cards!! Christmas for me is filled with so many memories. My favorite memory is being with my Grama and seeing what color her tree was each year … either traditional (multi color w/ silver icicles), or a Chrismon tree with white/gold ornaments (all of which were hand-made). This will be our 2nd Christmas without her. I would give anything to see her tree again (she was 102 the last time she put her tree up ... She would have been 104 on Dec. 3rd.) I miss her and all her traditions! (a.k.a. Corrie Hanson @ cozycorner1902@gmail.com)
