{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Makes A Jolly Christmas Card

Hi, Cornelia here today, making a jolly Christmas card.

Lets get started:

I masked a triangle with Post-it notes to create a tree

Sponged two different shades of green. Don't worry about getting it perfect - a tree is not all the same color.

I masked with fresh post it notes

...and sprinkled water onto my tree. This is necessary, as water drops will fall onto the stained areas on the post it note and the color will seep trough (guess how I know this?)

I then die cut the "be jolly" twice - first from the card and again using fun foam.

I put the card into my Misti and masked and stamped the funny deer.

Colored it with markers.

  ...and that was that.

Hope you liked this.
