Christmas Card


Hello there! I can't believe it's only 9 days to the end of Year 2013! Come 2014, there will be new resolutions to be made (none of which I'm sure I will keep up to LOL) and new beginings..With the holiday season drawing close, I'm sure many of you are busy prepping up cards to send  to your loved ones near and far..

Here's what I came up with for you Mixed Media enthusiasts.


Pick out a stencil of your choice and two Gelatos® 


First, colour on the stencil using the lighter shade of Gelatos®  followed by the darker shade


Spritz some water onto the stencil and using your fingers, gently rub the mixture of Gelatos® + water through the stencil


Once you remove the stencil, this will show through on the cardstock. Leave it to dry and the bubbles to fizzle out



Select some die cuts or Silhouette cut outs and trace the outer lines using  Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK 


Assemble the die cuts together with pre made flowers on top of the cardstock and attach a bow. Your card is ready!

Materials Used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft ProductsGelatos® & Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK

Stencil: Tim Holtz

Flowers: Prima
