christmas tree in a truck christmas card

Handmaking your Christmas cards has never been so easy (and cute)! Use watercolour 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 watercolour paper. Allow the ink to dry for a few minutes.

Step 2

Fill your aqua brush with water and add colour to your design with watercolour.

Step 3

Repeat step in another area on your watercolour paper. Use watercolour to paint the dog and his hat. Let watercolour dry completely.

Step 4

Cut out your first coloured image with your paper trimmer. The image should make about a 3" x 4" [7.62 cm x 10.16 cm] rectangle.

Step 5

Run your jet black ink pad along the edges of your watercolour paper.

Step 6

Cut a piece of red cardstock to 3¼" x 5" [8.9 cm x 12.7 cm]. Attach the watercolour 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 coloured design.

Step 9

Use the two-way glue pen 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!
