Christmas Card Head Start 2021 | Stencils & Die Cuts

It's August and yes, I'm still working on my Christmas cards! Today, I'm sharing a slimline card featuring a stenciled background and die cuts. This design came together easily using some exclusive slimline products combined with a new favorite die by Tim Holtz called Wise Men.

I began with a piece of the lighter blue paper from the Slimline Jewels Paper Pad. I placed the Slimline Stripes onto the paper and used Mint Tape to hold the stencil in place while applied Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide with a Domed Foam Ink Blending Tool. Next I added a little bit of stamping using some sentiments from the Tiny Text Christmas Stamp Set with Black Soot Archival Ink. I then finished it off with some ink splatters created using the Metallic Gold Re-inker.

Next I took the darkest blue paper from the Slimline Jewels Paper Pad and die cut it using the Wise Men Thinlits Die. I placed the die off to one side on the paper and then used scissors to cut the paper so that it fit across the background. Using my finger, I applied a bit of Sizzix Luster Wax in Gold to the edges of the die cut.

I wanted to add a little more shimmer so I took a piece of gold glitter cardstock and die cut the star from the Wise Men Thinlits and the letters from the Tall Skinny Alphabet Dies. To finish off the card, I adhered all of the layers onto a piece of gold glitter cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed another round of Christmas card inspiration featuring stencils and die cuts.
