Hi everyone, Mou here with a Holiday card Sizzix Tutorial for you today.
The collection of Holiday Tim Holtz dies and embossing folders by Sizzix are great to start your handmade holiday cards this year. Let me walk you through the steps of how I made my card. As you'll see that it's very easy to work on several cards at the same time which is very important during a busy season.
I started by die cutting my sentiments. Here you can have some fun combining dies from different sets. I picked certain Label Sizzix Thinlits dies and placed some of the block Holiday Words Sizzix Thinlits in them on a Standard Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform. Be sure to put the dies blade side up. The strong magnets of the Magnetic Platform hold the dies securely in place allowing you to get precision cuts. Layer card stock on top of the dies and top it off with another Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Big Shot machine.
Trim white card stock to 4.25" x 5.5" pieces. Place them inside Holiday Knits Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders. Place the folder between two Cutting Pads and lay it on the embossing tab, tab 1, of the Multipurpose Platform. Pass the sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine.
Lay Layered Snowflake die blade side up. Place card stock on top. Put them between two standard Cutting Pads and run the sandwich through the Big Shot machine. To add beautiful embossed details, place the di ecut snowflake inside the accompanying Texture Fade embossing folder. Put the folder between two Cutting Pads and place it on the embossing tab, tab 1, of the Multipurpose Platform. Pass the sandwich through the Big Shot machine.
With an ink blending tool, apply Barn Door Distress ink to the Holiday Knit embossed piece. This is going to be the base layer of the card.
Similarly, apply Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the die cut embossed snowflake.
Color the sentiment label with Adirondack Metallic Gold Acrylic paint.
Mount the sentiment to a block of patterned paper with foam tape and outline the letters with black pen.
Attach the Holiday Knit background piece to card front. With foam tape attach the snowflake on the top part of the card.
Attach the sentiment below the snowflake.
Add some details by coloring on the snowflake and the sentiment with Metallic Silver Fluid Acrylic paint. Splatter some gold and silver paints across the card to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would be using some of these fun dies for your holiday crafting this year.
