Free Online Card Making Tutorial

Top Footer

Hello and welcome to another free online card tutorial from – this project is made using the Lots of Cheer stampset from Stampin’ Up! for which I am a demonstrator for.

I decided to use the colour combination of real red and shaded spruce and made my own card background in a tartan plaid pattern.  Not bad for a first attempt I must admit – and being Scottish – I can’t believe I’ve never hand drawn tartan before lol


This card is a 4 x 6 card (inches) with two separate layers measuring 5 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ each.


The bottom layer I embossed with the tufted dynamic embossing folder and the top layer I hand drew my tartan pattern on to whisper white.

I added some real red ribbon to join the two layers together then hand stamped and punched the three tree images.

I added a layered sentiment section and adhered the trees behind this section.

Overall a lovely traditionally coloured Christmas Card.
