Twas the night before Christmas

Hello everyone, let me show you my latest make, a Christmas card with Sizzix-Tim Holtz dies. 

And this time I have a tutorial.

First, I cut out a 14x14 cm square card from watercolour paper.

I cut out the trees two times with Sizzix Thinlits die, Tree Line by Tim Holtz from dark green cardstocks using two different shades.

I blended Hickory Smoke ink onto the surface of the trees because it's a night scene so I needed a blackish-greyish tone.

I cut out the Santa with Sizzix Thinlits die, Village Christmastime by Tim Holtz from black cardstock.

I painted the background with acrylic paints.

I inked the edges with Hickory Smoke ink, then I glued the first tree line about a centimetre higher from the bottom.

Then I glued the second tree line.

I adhered the Santa cut-out.

I spattered with diluted white acrylic paint using a brush.

I placed my card on a 14,5x14,5 cm silver glitter paper.

And I cut out the Merry Christmas text from the same glitter paper using the Sizzix Thinlits die, Home for the Holidays by Tim Holtz.

I put this on a white 300gsm square card.

I hope you like it!!! Thank you for stopping by!!!

With my card, I would like to join the:
