To start this glitzy NOEL, you will need my NEW 5075J-Noel Digital Stamp Set. Size the NOEL image 2-7/7"x5-1/2". Place on 1/2 of the page and print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Color as desired: I chose to use Copic® markers.
A full list of the Copic® markers is listed above.
You will need a 5"x7" Gate Fold Cardbase. Cut your parts: Cut a 5"x7" and a 3"x6-1/4" The Paper Studio® Gold Glitter Cardstock rectangles.
Cut a 4-1/2"x6-1/2" rectangle of Neenah® Solid Core Jet Black.
Using a 1" circle punch, punch 1/4 of the corners off of each rectangle and the cardbase.
Cut the image to a 2-5/8"x5-7/8" rectangle and punch all 4 corners using the 1" circle punch. Center and adhere the image to the 3"x6-1/4" The Paper Studio® Gold Glitter Cardstock rectangle.
Center and adhere the 4-1/2"x6-1/2" rectangle of Neenah® Solid Core Jet Black to the 5"x7" Paper Studio® Gold Glitter Cardstock rectangle. Cut this panel in half length-wise and adhere one half to each of the front flaps of the 5"x7" gate fold cardbase. Adhere the image panel to the left front flap of the card front. Careful not to glue shut.
Randomly adhere varying sizes of gold sequin stars to the black.
Outline the NOEL stars using Nuvo® Glitter Drops- Bright Gold. Let Dry. Fill in each of the NOEL stars using Nuvo® Crystal Glace. Let Dry.
Using a small brush, apply Nuvo® Glitter Drops- White Blizzard to the ribbon. Let Dry.
As a special touch to my cards, I add this OPTIONAL... Using some of the leftover paper used to make the card and a name plaque I arrange a design and adhere to the backside of the cardbase as shown.
