Another 'Sneaky Peek' Christmas Trees card.

Good evening Lovelies,

Just a quick post tonight lol!   Hoping to have an early night for a change !   My card tonight is another 'Sneaky Peek' at a card I have made for the Imagination Craft's T.V. shows on HOCHANDA tomorrow at 10am.   1pm.   and 5pm.   Please remember to tune in, or set your recorders,  sounds like they are going to be good shows, lots of demos by our lovely Sue, which we all like.

Fold the cream card down the ready creased line, making a 7"x7" base card.   Matt a smaller piece of red card onto the base card.

Take another piece of cream card, cut slightly smaller than the red and lay the 'Holly' embossable stencil onto it and dab the mowed lawn distress ink through the design.   Remove the stencil and  dot some 'Red Berries' Detail Sparkle onto the holly berries and leave to dry.   Matt onto the red card.

In the meantime, die-cut the poinsettia, using the Marianne Design die.   Colour this with the red Starlight Paint and when dry, which will only take a few minutes, rub over the veins on the leaves with some Inca Gold Alchemy wax.   3D the flower and glue to the centre of the base card.   Add some Forest Green Sparkle Medium to the stamen in the centre of the flower.

Take another piece of cream card and spread the Forest Green Sparkle Medium through the Christmas tree stencil, using the metal spatula.   Remove stencil and leave to dry.   Do this a further 5 times.   When they are dry, trim around each tree leaving a tiny border of cream showing.   Glue thes around the poinsettia, using silicone glue, to give some dimension to the card.

Cut out the tree bases and colour with the red Starlight paint, then glue them below each of the trees.   Well that's it finished.   Hope you like it,   I sat thinking, what can I do with this tree stencil,  maybe  use it in a different way lol   and this is what came to mind.    Hope you like it.

See you all again soon.   Enjoy the shows tomorrow.   I'll be sitting comfortably, a cup of tea in hand and possibly a choccy biscuit !!   naughty naughty me !
