Tip: When stamping on acrylic, the stamp has a tendency to slide on the smooth surface. Stamp firmly, hold it very still as you press around on the stamp so the ink is transferred well. Then hold the acrylic in place on your work surface as you lift straight up. Don’t allow the stamp to move sideways or your design might become smudged. It’s really simple once you get the hang of securing everything and lifting straight up.
- For the card front: With the card fold at the top, trim 1 1/4” off just the lower front edge. Cut a piece of the teal stars paper to cover the front. Ink the edges, but don’t glue it yet.
- Stamp “Merry Christmas” onto the acrylic sheet. Cut it to 6 1/2” x 1 3/4”. Glue the strip to the front of the card, making sure the lower edge is even with the lower edge of the card back.
- Cut nine 3 1/2” long strips from coordinating papers, varying the widths from 1/2”- 1”. Starting at the left side, allowing ½” to extend above the top edge, begin placing the strips on the stars piece extending downward from the top edge. Tear the ends to vary the lengths, gradually making them shorter as you move right. Don’t glue anything down until you’re happy with the layout and color combination.
- When you like it, start gluing them in place, again moving left to right, and overlapping the side edges slightly. Turn the piece over and score across the strips at the edge of the stars piece. Fold the ends to the back and glue in place. Glue the constructed front to the blank card front.
- Punch out white snowflakes and place them across the strips, using the glue stick to secure them. Add a glitter dome to the center of each snowflake.
- For the inside: Cut a piece of the blue dots paper to fit the inside back and ink the edges. Glue it in place. Cut out the sentiments and ink the edges. Mat them on green glimmer paper then glue them to the inside back so they’re hidden when the card is closed. Add three snowflakes with glitter dome centers around the sentiments.
