Christmas Note Cards – Merry Mice and Totally Trees

By | September 15, 2016

Hi there

Last weekend I held a workshop for 13 lovely ladies and showcased products from the new Holiday Catalogue.  As this was a big group and they were seated at two tables I decided is would be easier to teach two projects – one per table then swap.  I picked two stamps sets from the Holiday Catalogue – Merry Mice and Totally Trees – to create two Christmas cards.  I’ve used the Note Cards and Envelopes for these cards – Whisper White and Crumb Cake.  They come in a pack of 20 and are already cut and scored 🙂 Here is what they made:

The Merry Mice set has three line images so they could choose which image they wanted to colour in.

The backgrounds are created with the new Seasonal Masks – you get four designs for $12.  The colour is sponged over the mask creating the design.

The images are stamped onto Shimmery White Card Stock which is great from watercolouring.  You could also use Watercolour Paper.

In New Zealand we have a tree called the Pohutukawa Tree which flowers at Christmas – it is known as the New Zealand Christmas Tree and was my inspiration for this card.

I have fallen in love with this stamp set – it has 27 stamps and allows for heaps of creativity with different overlays for the branch images.  I used Soft Suede for the tree trunk/branches and then Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive for the ‘greenery’.
