Home for Christmas is the new range of goodies from DoCrafts - and i have fell head over heels in love with their papers. The range is firm and sturdy but not too thick to score and fold or even emboss. so it was a natural choice to make some easel cards using this beautiful range of papers and matching stamps. I love how easel cards can display themselves without any issues and they always look good no matter what.
i combined a variety of the patterned papers with kraft cardstock for an earthy Christmas look. to bring in some green i used the beautiful holly stamp and added colour using the new range of DoCrafts Artiste Dual Tip Brush Markers. i love the artistic look i am able to achieve using these markers. and they come in 3 different sets for a huge range of colours.
the baubles were cut from a sheet of patterned paper and popped up using pop dots.
stunning sentiment tags are available in the range making it a complete a-z option for quick and convenient Christmas crafting.
for my second card i matted a piece of kraft cardstock onto patterned paper and added some sewing for texture. I used a scalloped circle Couture Creations die underneath my Boofle printed accent.
some red gliztin glamour glitter glue used on the berries adds a nice touch of shine.
and a couple of diamante to finish it all off.
to see how i used the Artiste Brush Markers head on over here for a sxs tutorial.
with the weekend here maybe you will have some time to get a few Christmas cards done. remember there's only about 13 weeks left. here's to a creative weekend filled with peace and beauty!
