christmas tree in a truck christmas card

Handmaking your Christmas cards has never been so easy (and cute)! Use watercolor to bring the scene to life and then finish it off with a little glitter!
Step 1

Stamp your image with StazOn® ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. Allow the ink to dry for a few minutes.

Step 2
Fill your aqua brush with water and add color to your design with watercolor.
Step 3
Repeat Step in another area on your watercolor paper. Use watercolor to paint the dog and his hat. Let watercolor dry completely.
Step 4
Cut out your first colored image with your paper trimmer. The image should make about a 3"x4" rectangle.
Step 5
Run your jet black ink pad along the edges of your watercolor paper.
Step 6
Cut a piece of red cardstock to 3¼"x5". Attach the watercolor rectangle to the right side of the cut red cardstock.
Step 7
Cut out the dog and his hat.
Step 8
Place two small dimensional squares on the back of your dog and place him over the dog in the colored design.
Step 9
Use the two-way glue pen to over the bows on the gifts in your image and your dog’s hat. Sprinkle glitter over the glue and shake off the excess. Set aside to dry.
Step 10
Wrap a long piece of jute around the left edge of the red rectangle and tie a bow. Trim the ends to desired length.
Step 11
Attach to the front of a kraft folded card.
TIP: Don’t forget to add a sentiment to the inside the card!
