Quick Christmas Card (by Jodie)

Hello everyone, our Guest Design Team member Jodie is making her final appearance here this month, and she has created another fabulous Christmas card for your inspiration.

Jodie writes:

Good morning everyone, this is my final project as Chocolate Baroque's latest Guest Designer. November has gone by so quickly and I've thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
Even though this card looks quite complicated, using these wonderful stamps and a few dies and a few dies I have in my stash, the card came together rather quickly.

Stamps- A Tomte Christmas
Ink- Versafine Vintage Sepia
Paper- A4 Luxury Smooth White Paper
Cosmic Shimmer PVA Glue
Alcohol Ink Markers
Die Cuts

First cut out a mat for the front of the card, measuring 4" x 5 1/4" (10.16cm x 13.36cm).
Next I cut the trees out from the ivory cardstock using a tree die that I had on hand. I lightly inked them up using Versafine Vintage Sepia.
Attach these with PVA glue to the card mat.
Next I cut the deer and the bird, using dies I had on hand. I drew a slope on the ivory cardstock and glued that onto the card base, then I attached the deer and the bird.
Next, ink up the gnome with the sled using Versafine and stamp onto ivory cardstock.
Next colour in the image. I used alcohol ink markers, but you can certainly use any colouring medium you have on hand.
Once done colouring, cut out the image, and attach to the card mat.

I then stamped a saying from the stamp set onto the same paper that I cut the deer out with and attached it to the mat.
Finally I cut a piece of cardstock for my card base, measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (13.97cm x 21.59cm). I folded it in half, then attached my card front.
I have enjoyed my time here these past weeks and hope that I've inspired some of you to start your Christmas cards early, or for those of you who have already started, maybe I've given you some ideas to help add to your collection.
Thank you for checking out my latest project and don't hesitate to hop on over to my blog at

Take care - Jodie
