Handmade Holiday Cards Part 2

The holidays are a great time to get creative. For this card I used the Christmas tree stamp from Stampabilities #OR1059 and Hero Arts stamp H5267 Santa. It was colored using Tombow Water Color Markers and metallic Gelly Roll pens. I gave the card depth by using foam dimensional on the back of Santa.
Glue scrapbook printed paper to the front of a 5” x 6.5” card base.
Stamp tree on watercolor paper using jet black, Stazon Solvent Ink.
Use Tombow Watercolor Markers to color green areas, followed by red on the ribbons and bows. I use a waterbrush to drag color on the ribbons.
Color ornaments in assorted colors.
Use Metalic Gelly Roll pens for the star and some embellishments of ornaments.
Cut out tree leaving a white edge around the tree and gifts.
Glue tree to the print paper on the upper left.

 Print and color Santa on watercolor paper.
Cut out Santa leaving a white edge.
Add red glitter to hat and stockings.
Place foam dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card.
