Christmas Card Tutorial

There was snow here on Halloween, so to get in the spirit and get a head start on your holiday card making I wanted to share with you a simple card that you can make.  First of all gather your supplies, including the Lots of Dots stamp set.

Next start by placing your letters on your acrylic block to spell Merry Christmas in the shape of a tree.  I tried to do these line by line so I could get the look I wanted for the shape when I was stamping.

Once you have finished stamping your tree should look similar to the one below.

To make the tree stand out from your background paper cut out around the edges.

To give my tree some dimension, I stamped 5 of the letters and cut them out and adhered them with Helmar Zap Dots, a fabulous product from one of our product partners.

Adhere tree to your card base and embelish as you like!  I added some red Core’dinations cardstock to my background to give it some pop!  And here is the finished card:

I hope that you found this tutorial helpful and will get a start on those Christmas cards!

Happy Scrappin’!
