Another Christmas Card!
I keep on trying this Christmas card making phenom and am finally getting into it a bit. After watching countless videos (mostly Pamellia) and reading different tutorials, I had a go at making a layered card with lots of textures. Enjoy!
I started by watering down DecoArt Metallic gold and silver acrylic paint. Then I swiped some glossy paper through it and slowly heat dried it. It started to look like hills! Yippee!
I then took a stencil and applied DecoArt Titanium white acrylic paint through a stencil to create a snow texture. My rolling hill is a piece of scrap paper that has numerous layers of paints on it. I finished the hill with DecoArt texture paste stippled with my palette knife. When it was dry I added some DecoArt Snow-Tex randomly and some glitter.
DecoArt Crystal sprinkle on glitter. The white trees were painted with a thin layer of DecoArt Liquid Glass and the crystal glitter was sprinkled onto that. When it was dry I added some Snow Tex just like I did for the gold trees and the same glitter.
The base behind the tree layer is painted with DecoArt Metallic Gold paint. I only went around the edge that would show though.
The base of the card is embossed and hand painted with the gold metallic paint as well.
