Ivy Christmas Tree (by Julie)

Hi Crafty friends, today I'm sharing a card I made with you. 

Step 1. Take an 8" x 8" white card blank

Step 2. Add a layer of deep red card 7 1/2" x 7 1/2"

Step 3. Take a 7 1/4" x 7 1/4" white card square, ink up the Christmas word strip from Slim Word Strip 2. Ink it up in shades of Red Distress inks: Barn Door, Crackling Campfire, Aged Mahogany

Step 4. Taking the slim dotty stamp from the same stamp set, ink it up in Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink, do this twice so that you have done two strips of blue. 

Step 5. Ink up the Positivity word strip in the same shades of red as the top stamping 

Step 6. Ink onto white paper all three sizes of Ivy leaf from the From Nature 2 stamp set in a mixture of colours. Gold Dewdrop Ink, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss Distress Ink, Green Oasis Versafine Clair Ink.

Step 7. Cut out the ivy leaves, curl tips upwards, them glue one by one using the largest at the base and working upwards to form a fir tree shape. Tuck a spare ivy leaf behind top word strip.

Step 8. Glue mini baubles from stash onto the tree.

Step 9. Take single Tomte Gnome from A Tomte Christmas stamp set using Twighlight Versafine Clair Ink. Cut out and colour with alcohol pens.Use White Puffy Stuff for hem, hat and beard.


May I thank you for dropping by,

Regards, Jules x
