My project today was made using the new Christmas Morning paired with the Pine Branch. I love this precious silhouette with the Christmas tree scene. My goal was to create a lit backdrop in contrast with the girl.


Christmas Morning

I started by stamping the the image twice on watercolor paper with black versafine. I wanted one to be the base for the scene. I used my craft knife and snips to cut out the arch opening and girl of the second to pop up over the base to create dimension and interest.

I watercolored the images using my waterbrush and Distress reinkers. I colored the red ornaments with a red marker. I attached the image base layer to the card base with ATG adhesive. I attached the arch/girl layer to the base with mounting tape.

I cut a double matted frame using Classic Ovals and attached over the scene with mounting tape creating another layer of dimension.  I added the bright red multi loop bow and pine branches for the finishing touch.
