Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in kraft cardstock. For this project I used a pre-made card base, but if you want to make your own, here’s what you’ll do. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – White, cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″

Start by stamping the sentiment at the base of the card in purple ink. Then, ink up the jar, but don’t ink the lid or logo. You can mask this out with tape. Ink it with blue ink and stamp it right above the sentiment in the center of the card.

Now, stamp the Mini Poinsettia in purple, pink, and red, cleaning in between ink colors. Stamp the Mini Leaf in green, rotating the stems toward the flowers. Stamp again without re-inking (or stamping the first impression on a scrap sheet of paper). Next, stamp the Tiny Pinecone in brown and the Mini Pine Branch in green, rotating the base of the pinecone and the bough branch toward the flowers.

Draw in stems for the flowers and leaves if you like with a green colored pencil. Color in the jar with a blue colored pencil.

With a waterbrush spread a bit of blue toward the right base of the jar to create a shadow. Brush on yellow ink along the card edge.

Glue to the kraft card base. Add black Nuvo Drops to the center of the flowers – three drops each.

For the envelope, stamp the poinsettia, leaf, pinecone, and pine branch along the edge of the envelope flap in the colors you stamped the card.

  1. Enjoyed this one too. I like the grouping of the smaller stamps. It gives me a chance to put my own twist on the artwork while still not being an artist. I think it makes me feel more creative than using a single stamp that is clearly someone else’s “vision”.

    1. I’m so glad that you liked it. Yes, that is the beauty of peg stamps – you get to make every card or project your very own.
