A Christmas Card Tutorial by Steph Ackerman

by | December 17th, 2013 | 1

Hi everyone, Steph here today with a Christmas Card tutorial featuring a plethora of Clearsnap products.


I love the new ColorBox™ Art Screens.  They can be used to create amazing backgrounds on cards, layouts, canvases, and more.  I used our ColorBox™ Art Daubers with the Swirldot ColorBox™ Art Screen,  Top Boss® Watermark Ink and Clear embossing Powder to create a subtle background on a tag.  Then I used the Stripes ColorBox™ Art Screen with Warm Red Chalk Ink as the second layer.   Using assorted ColorBox™ Art Screens, you can create layers of color without the added bulk.


Funky Forest Design Adhesives were then layered on top of the tag – you can see areas where the tag resisted the foils because of the embossing.   Jolly Greetings Design Adhesives finished the tag.


Now just add cardstock and pattern paper to the card front and place the tag on top with foam adhesives.  Used as the focal point of a card, the tag truly stands out.
