Art Impressions Christmas Slimline Card

Watch the video tutorial here!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

It’s a great day!!! Art Impressions has another brand new holiday stamp and die set available now! It is called the Christmas Slimline Set (5461) and it is specifically designed to work perfectly on the ever popular slimline cards!

I am personally so addicted to any of the slimline designs now…from the mini to the large size! Today we will create a large slimline card and to set the scene we will be creating a beautiful snowy background using our Distress Oxide Inks. We will be creating a night sky with a lighted area for our lantern. I’ll show you how easy it is to create this look.

This fantastic set includes the tall snowman and a few cute birds and an adorable little bunny! We will be coloring in these images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. Then we will add a few snowy borders, a sentiment, and a few little hearts to complete the scene.

We will also add some dimension with some Crystal Glaze as well as some flocking for even more texture and dimension!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

This is just such a beautiful wreath set which includes a lovely bow, sentiment and holly/berry sprig! We will be using all of the elements of this stamp set for this card today!

I will show you how to easily create this archway shaped card! To add some dimension we will be using a 3-D Textured Embossing Folder and we will stack up several of the bows for some nice visual interest!

To give this card a vintage vibe, we will add some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. For even more dimension we will add some Crystal Glaze to the little berries in our wreath!
