Hello & Welcome to my post today! Samantha here and today I wanted to share this Christmas card using the Elegant Christmas Tree die. This is one of my favourite Christmas themed dies, and while I love paper piecing I often find it overwhelming with intricate dies like this. Colouring is a perfect way to get a similar effect – it’s also much more quicker and less messy!
Step 1: Using alcohol ink friendly cardstock die cut both parts of the Elegant Christmas tree die. Place the detailed Christmas tree onto the Christmas tree base. Use a pencil to trace the details on to the Christmas tree base.
Step 2: Select your Copic markers (RV00/RV02/RV04/RV06/RV09) to colour each individual detail traced onto the Christmas tree. Use as eraser to rub out the pencil lines.
Step 3: Continue to colour until all the details are coloured in.
TIP: No need to colour within the lines – it is best to colour slightly out side of each lines.
Step 4: Adhere the die cut detailed Christmas tree onto the coloured in Christmas tree base. Next adhere the Christmas tree onto a pink card base (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm).
Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die.
Adhere the larger star to the top of the tree and embellish the tree with the rest of the smaller stars.
Step 6: Die cut a circle using pattern paper, stamp the sentiment – trim to create a half circle. Adhere the sentiment onto the card base.
Step 7: Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
A fun, bright Christmas card without the mess! Hope this inspires you to try it out yourself.-
