Bethlehem Skyline Card Tutorial

All images © 1990-2017 Stampin’ Up!®

  • Card Stock – Basic Black (121045); Whisper White (100730); Gold Glimmer Paper (133719)
  • Stamp Pads – Flirty Flamingo (141397); Rich Razzleberry (126950); Fresh Fig (144082); Basic Black Archival (140931)
  • Misc. – Big Shot (143263); Precision Base Plate (139684); Magnetic Platform (130658); Bethlehem Edgelits Dies (144676); Stamping Sponges (141337); Mini Dimensionals (144108)
  • Basic Black (base): 5 ½” x 8 ½”, folded in half
  • Basic Black: 4 ¼” x 5 ½”
  • Whisper White: 3 ½” x 5 ¼”
  • Gold Glimmer Paper: ½” x 5 ¼” plus scrap

  1. Cut the sponge into wedges so you have a minimum of 4 different pieces. You will use a different wedge for each color. You will need to allow each layer of ink to dry before moving on to the next color. If you own a Heat Tool you can speed up the drying process by using it on the lowest temperature (speed 1).
  2. Sponge Flirty Flamingo ink over the entire Whisper White layer. Sponge Rich Razzleberry over the top of most areas of the Flirty Flamingo. I left a lighter area of color over the center of the card where the skyline will lay. Sponge Flirty Flamingo over the upper ¼ portion of the layer. Sponge Basic Black Archival ink over the top edge and ¼ of the way down the sides of the layer. Use the picture as a guide.
  3. Adhere the sponged layer to the card base.
  4. Die cut both the large and small cityscape using the Edgelits on the Basic Black 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of cardstock. You can die cut both images at one time by placing them along opposite edges of the paper.
  5. Adhere the shorter cityscape to the larger cityscape using Mini Dimensionals. You will need to cut some of the Mini Dimensionals in half to cover some of the areas. Adhere the layered skyline to the base of the card.
  6. Die cut the star using Gold Glimmer Paper scraps. Adhere to the upper left corner of the card using Dimensionals.
  7. Adhere the strip of Gold Glimmer Paper along the right edge of the card base as shown.
