Hi cardmaking friends. Today I have a Buffalo Check Tartan Video and 4 completed cards to share with you. I’m using this quick and easy background technique. The video is super short, but it’s the easiest way to show you the technique.
All you need is the Buffalo Check background stamp from Hero Arts, a black and red Tombow Marker and a White Gel Pen to make these fabulous backgrounds. I needed some masculine Christmas cards which caused all this, haha All of my previous pink cards are just not going to cut it.
Using White and Sand card stock from Hero Arts the Buffalo Check is stamped using a Misti stamping tool and then the tartan is applied with the markers.
Watch the video over on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL with detailed instructions on how to create this masculine and very easy background effect. Then use the tutorials below to create these awesome Masculine Christmas Cards with the backgrounds.
Buffalo Check Tartan Card #1
Use the Buffalo Check background stamp, the Christmas Robins stamp and die set and Nesting Oval Dies.
Next, color the images with copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies
Finally, add them to the Buffalo Check Tartan background.
NOTE – All of the Buffalo Check Tartan backgrounds are cut as follows:
Tartan: 3-1/2 x 4-3/4
Mat: 3-5/8 x 4-/78
Card Bases A2 sized, either top folding 4-1/2 x 11, or 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
Buffalo Check Tartan Card #2
Use the black tartan background for this one.
Next, cut the sentiment using the Hero Arts Christmas Holidays Stamp and Cut set. Please note, the Merry Christmas in this set, is a bit too wide for these cuts.
Finally, embellish with a bird and flora created with the Christmas Robins Stamp and Die set.
Cards 3 and 4
Use the black and red tartans stamped onto white for the bases.
Next, do the two layer stamping with the Color Layering Merry Christmas stamp set from Hero arts to create the decorative Christmas balls.
Finally, gold emboss the topper, and add to the card before attaching it to the card base.
