Trying to Get Started with Christmas Cards

OK - I know the thought of Christmas for some is completely unacceptable, but I am trying to get myself ready for the season. :)

In saying that, I have created a couple cards based on the Freshly Made Sketches, Sketch #204.

I actually really liked this sketch, because my mojo was lacking pretty hard... But this simple sketch allowed me a starting point to whip something up relatively easily. :) I actually ended up making a few different cards with the same sketch, using Graphic 45's 12 days of Christmas collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Add seed bead gel as desired
  5. Paint with another couple coats of gesso

  • Prima Finnabair stencil
  • Prima color bloom sprays
  • Liquitex Modelling Paste (not pictured)
  • Many other sprays, at least 3 others (not pictured)

    colouring is achieved. :)

  4. Add chipboard pieces to the back of the wooden
    polaroid frame to add dimension

  6. Use all the same sprays and stickles on the frame
  7. Adhere frame to the canvas :)
  8. Add lettering as desired
  9. Add all the other embellishments your heart desires
No filter - This is genuinely how bright the canvas is while hanging on my fence. :)
I clustered my flowers along the side of the canvas as well. :)

More photos because I love this project and felt a different background could help some people, maybe? :)
