Christmas Cards on Grafix Opaque White & Black Film

Project Description: A tutorial on how to create Christmas cards using Grafix art plastics and alcohol inks.

Designed by: Anne Roos Smink

Difficulty: Easy


Steps to Make This:

  1. Cut the Grafix Opaque Craft Plastic Film White/Black in four pieces. Two pieces will be used for the Christmas ornaments, the other two can be used as card stock (cut more pieces if needed).
  2. On two of the pieces, use different colors of alcohol inks diluted with isopropyl or blending solution and blow it around with a heat tool, straw, or a brush. Make sure the inks have dried completely before moving to the next step. For this example, I used beige and red colors in combination with gold on the white plastic film and solely gold ink on the black plastic film.
  3. Then, draw various Christmas ornament shapes on the stencil film and cut them out with a Stanley knife.
  4. Apply the stencil film on the alcohol ink pieces and trace them with a pencil.
  5. Use a Stanley knife or scissors to cut out the ornaments.
  6. Place the ornaments on the other two pieces of craft plastic or other card stock and create a composition you like.
  7. Use Grafix Artist-tac dry adhesive or glue to stick the ornaments to the cards.
  8. Use a black or gold pen to draw lines from the ornaments to make them look like they are hanging.
  9. Write a Christmas message on your cards and have a merry Christmas!
