May Your Holiday Shine

May Your Holiday Shine, a Christmas CardThe first card (click on the image to see a larger version) in my 25 Holiday Cards Challenge pulls together techniques that I’ve learned in the last month or so. I incorporated both the homemade glitter paper that I made and I used the watercolor technique to fill in the tree.

Here are the details:

  • Background: Homemade white glitter paper
  • Main image background: Curly Label Punch in Baja Breeze, with a drop shadow centered at 0,0.
  • Trees: Row of Trees from the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Brush Set, in Basic Black
  • Middle Tree: Watercolor technique with the Splatter from the Extreme Elements Stamp Brush Set, in Handsome Hunter, with opacity adjusted in a few stamps to create the look of depth.
  • Decorations: Circle Punches, resized, in various shades. Star from A Holly, Jolly Christmas Stamp Brush Set in Whisper White
  • Gift: Gift from Jolly Bingo Bits in Whisper White with Brilliant Blue Square and Circle Punches behind.
  • Sentiment: Typed in the Lucida Calligraphy font.
