It’s the time of the year again, holidays crafting has officially started! I’m here to share a water-colored Christmas card with you all. The color scheme this month is red, green and white so here is what I came up with…
I colored the image and background with Gansai Tambi watercolors – love it!
Step 1: Die-cut a holly leaf shape and use the negative as masking on a pre-cut watercolor paper card base. Trace around the inner shape with a pencil.
Step 2: Water-color the background with blue and leaf with green colors. Play around the colors to get desired color tone. Let dry.
Step 3: Using the cutout holly leaf outline shape from Step 1 and adhere it on top of the water-colored image. Adhere carefully on the traced lines so it would not be visible.
Step 4: Die-cut the same holly leaf die on a red cardstock, extract the red holly berries cutouts and insert/glue to the missing puzzle on the card.
Step 5: Die-cut a stitched frame and Merry Christmas sentiment and glue on to the card.
That’s it, simple and lovely handmade Christmas card for the season! Hope you like the card, have fun creating!
