A Festive Card by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, It's Julie here today. Thank you so much to everyone for their kind comments and 'likes' on our Facebook page with my Mixed Media Tutorial last week, I really appreciated it. I have made a Christmas card this week to share with you all. Let me take you through the steps of making this card.

I first of all stamped my image in black onto Kraft card and heat embossed with clear ink. Shading my image with Copics and adding Stickles to the berries.

I next paper pieced my large Snowflakes and Pine Branches to the reverse of my card layers to form frames.

You will have noticed on the green foliage I also cut out the top of the branch and layered on to form a corner point.

My Poinsettia's were made by colouring strips of white paper with Distress Spray Stains. I used Aged Mahogany, Festive Berries and Brushed Pewter and dried with my heat gun before adding a touch of gold mica spray. I then die cut out my Poinsettia Strip.

You get beautiful different shades on your flowers which gives a realistic look. I added some stamens and built them up.

I paper pieced my Holly and my Pine Branches onto my card, checking my Poinsettia would hide the joins before I finally glued on top. finally adding Stickles around the Perimeter.
