Christmas cards with Valeria

Hello,
It is Valeria - Nilla Crafts here

In my first blog post for Studio Forty  I will focus on creating Christmas cards with stamp set called Merry Xmas. I will show you how to create different kinds of wreath with just one stamp set 



Yes, all you need to create beautiful Christmas card for your family and friends is just tiny stamp of little branch ... and as you can see, this one is very loved :) 



Card No. 1

Use any green ink you have or color you like and stamp a wreath. I didn´t measure anything, just stamp a circle. Start with a base layer and continue by adding more. This time you will need just one ink color 



I have finished this card in my favorite and most loved style of creating called clean and simple


Use red nuvo crystal drops or red enamel dots to create clusters of little berries 



Card No. 2

I wanted to create a landscape card so I focused stamping on upper left side.
My goal was to create illusion of branches.
Start with one row, than fill the space with more branches and use different shades of green



I truly love the sentiments in this stamp set - the font is amazing
 

I have met several polish crafty friends this year so Xmas card with greeting in Polish language is always handy
 



 Little puffy stickers from my stash were great choice as an embellishment for this card



 Card No. 3


If you are not in a mood for freehand stamping and need some guidance, this is the card design for you.
Use your die as a template for tracing the shape. I wanted something different, so I use the oval shape. Please notice I didn´t want the whole wreath shape - just the top and the bottom part 



Follow the pencil lines and stamp the branch over it. It´s better to use dark color. Pencil lines would be visible under the light color of ink and it´s impossible to erase it later 


Continue to stamp more branches in different colors and make it as full as you wish.
Once you´re finished, don´t forget to remove the rest of pencil lines with eraser 



 It´s great to have Christmas greetings in many styles 


I love to use little bells and jingle bells on my cards 
 






Card No. 4
I have created one more wreath on my last card but this time with different shades of green.
Capture the process of creating  was quite difficult. It´s impossible to create 2 same wreaths.
My advice - relax, make a coffee or tea, stamp and enjoy the process of creating :)


 This card is finished a little bit different, let´s say nontraditionally.


I used my Big shot to create circle window on my front panel and stamped the sentiment inside the card 





It´s something different and unexpected 



Few little red gems are more than enough for this card as an embellishment




And that´s all for today my crafty friends
Hope you like my cards I have created for you
Let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite ?
Thank you and see you soon again
