Watercolor Christmas light bulbs & garland stamping

  Hi there.  For today, I am using two stamp sets to make a festive Christmas card with watercolor Christmas lights along with pine garland foliage stamping.  

Wishing you a blessed winter, a merry Christmas & a happy New Year.

Here are tips for making this one layer card.  First, die-cut or trim a background layer of watercolor paper.  Next, stamp using waterproof ink.  Also, for the garland foliage, use a portion of the pine stamp to make a hint of garland around the edges.  Then, add a touch of watercolor onto the light bulbs in different colors and dry.  Next, add ink blending all around the edges.  Finally, to finish, adhere the panel to the card base and add embellishments, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
