Christmas card in classic colors


Hi, Vladka here!
On this card I used classic Christmas colors and I have to admit they are still my favorite. Are you interested in how I did it? Let me show you.. 


Basics:

Kraft cardstock for the card base: 4 1/4 x 6 inches (cut 4 1/4 x 12 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of kraft cardstock and some white and red cardstock for die cuts 

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink:  Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
Other: Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, Scor-buddy, Water, White watercolor in tube, piece of  dish sponge

1. First cut the Spruce Stems and Winter Branches out of white cardstock and color it with green and brown distress inks:


2. Put some white watercolor on the piece of dish sponge and drag gentle over the additional piece of paper and all die cuts.


3. Arrange all stems and branches into the flower arrangement and glue all pieces together on the additional piece of paper.


4. With Build a Bow die, make smaller bow and glue it on the top of the arrangement. For finishing touch add also the Holiday Greetings Tree die cut. You can also add piece of brown fun foam between cardbase and additional piece of paper.


Card is now finished.


I hope you like it. Have fun creating. And don't forget, fifth CottageCutz challenge is waiting for you. This time theme is BIRTHDAY CARD. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.
