A Festive Card

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone, I can't believe we are now less than 2 weeks away from Christmas and still so much to do LOL.
Thank you so much to everyone for their kind comments with my Mixed Media Tutorial last week, I really appreciated it. For my DT Post at Cheery Lynn Designs this week, I have made a Christmas card to share with you all. Let me take you through the steps of making this card.

I first of all stamped my Crafty Individuals image in black onto Kraft card and heat embossed with clear ink. Shading my image with Copics and adding Stickles to the berries.

I next paper pieced my large Snowflakes and Pine Branches to the reverse of my card layers to form frames.

You will have noticed on the green foliage I also cut out the top of the branch and layered on to form a corner point.

The Poinsettia's were made by colouring strips of white paper with Distress Spray Stains. I used Aged Mahogany, Festive Berries and Brushed Pewter and dried with my heat gun before adding a touch of gold mica spray. I then die cut out my Poinsettia Strip. 

You get beautiful different shades on your flowers which gives a realistic look. I added some stamens and built them up.

I paper pieced my Holly and my Pine Branches onto my card, checking my Poinsettia would hide the joins before I finally glued on top. finally adding Stickles around the Perimeter.

Thanks for stopping by.
