Holly Leaves Joy Christmas Card

Here are traditional Christmas colors mixed in with a trendy card style.


Sentiment:  Joy

For the holly leaves, I layered shades of Copic markers.  Then, I fussy cut one side of the leaves to create a dimensional card border.  Adding the Joy sentiment on vellum with a few adhesive gems finished out the look.

My quick video tutorial shows the process.


Here is another look.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Border of Holly and A Christmas Hello; Copic markers G21, YG03, R35, R02, BG10; Misti, adhesive gems and My Creative Time dies.

Wishing you a great day.

Soft vellum orchids thank you card.

Here is a floral card with a soft look to the orchid flowers.
 

Sentiment:  Thanks 

I used a layer of vellum along with a background of the same florals.  To get the softness, I colored the opposite side of the vellum stamping using Copics.  Then I added the vellum to the background florals.  To get the duplicate floral look, I used the Misti stamp positioning tool.

My quick video tutorial shows the process.


Here is another look.
