Nutcracker card with Prismacolor colored pencils ~ tutorial.

 Hello.  It is early holiday card making for me.  Here is my nutcracker card using Prismacolor pencils and hardware embellishment.


Sentiment:  Wishing you a magical Christmas & a crackin' New Year!

For this nutcracker, I was going for a rustic wood grain look using color pencils.  But for a smoother look and brighter color, brush on gamsol fluid after coloring.

Here are tips for making this card.  First, stamp the nutcracker and the sentiment onto kraft color cardstock.  Then trim or die-cut frames and background accent details.  Next, color in the nutcracker using colored pencils or other color mediums.  Adding gamsol fluid to the pencil coloring is another step that is optional when using color pencils.  Then, to accent further, add a sentiment frame.  I used hardware for the frame.  However, if using hardware in card making, I recommend hand delivering the card or packaging it safely for mailing.

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