Here is the card that I made using a stamp set I used in my tutorial bundle project. I’ve used two images from the Labels to Love Stamp Set to create a Christmas card with a rustic handmade flavour.

Using an “oldie but goodie” technique – acrylic block stamping, I added several ink colours to my E block (Bermuda Bay, Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist), spritzed with water and stamped it down over white heat embossed images on watercolour paper. This technique is super easy but the results are quite lovely. I added some wonky red stitching, and trimmed the panel down to 9.5 cm x 11.9 cm, making sure I had enough room for the sentiment which was also white heat embossed.

The panel was adhered with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a Real Red top-folding card base measuring 29.7 cm x 10.5 cm (scored at 14.8 cm). I adhered one of the adorable felt shapes from the Stitched Felt Embellishments to the centre of the watercolour panel with a dimensional, and added some silver stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes for a little sparkle.
