Handmade Christmas Scene Greetings Card

Designed by Trudie Howard

Items used:
1x 6”x6” (15cm x 15cm) card blank










Step 1: Mark a 6cm by 13cm rectangle with a score tool. Do not use pencil as this will smudge along with the crayon.




















Step 2:Scribble Chipped Sapphire on the outside of the rectangle and, using a clean finger, smudge to the inside to create a soft halo of colour.

Using a scrap of card, cut away 'hill shapes' and, using the same technique, create some hills.








Step 3: Once you're happy with your hills, choose your stamps. (I used a selection from Lisa Horton’s Winter Woodland and Winter Scene sets.)
Because the stamps are polymer, they can be bent slightly to follow the line of the hills where necessary.




 


  



                           








Step 4: Trim excess and mount on to Midnight Blue foundation card and trim again leaving the desired amount of boarder. Mount to the left side of the card blank and stamp sentiment.
