QUICK CARD TUTORIAL...

A few years back I designed this really quick and simple little crimbo card, it still hangs in the shop today, along with another version, and we still get asked how it was made, so here goes...
Take a small square card blank, I used Craftwork Cards 4" White (love them) !!! and stamp your sentiment  in the centre about 1" up from the bottom
Next, using Glossy Accents, "scribble" a tree direct to the card
Then take your favourite Martha Stewart Iridescent Fine Glitter and sprinkle over the "tree"
Shake off excess glitter, add a little bling and leave to dry
And there you have one of the quickest, simplest little crimbo cards, even the kids can do it... so go on what are you waiting for !!!!

How simple but effective is this. I won't be able to start my Christmas Cards for a week or two so this idea is ideal.
Thanks.

That's a great idea Marion, I'm useless at anything other than decoupage but I think even I could attempt this, simple but really effective! x x x
