Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today sharing a collection of watercoloured Christmas tree cards. I used the Blessings Tree stamp and glitter heat emboss powders to create a variety of different card looks.

 I started by cutting up 9" x 12" Canson XL watercolour paper into 3 strips of 4" x 9" and then scoring and tent folding them. The above trio was watercoloured with Grass Green, Olive and Turquoise Nuance powders after heat embossing. I went with classic colour combos of green, red and gold. Once dry, I added the jewels.

This trio was watercoloured with Mijello Mission Gold watercolours and once dry, I used a Zig 05 marker to add shadowed outlines.

This final one, was watercoloured with Mijello Mission Gold watercolours and once dry the jewels were added on.

Fun, festive and easy to make these are perfect for some quick homemade cards for family and friends. Hope you give them a try.

Thanks Miranda and Mariette! Very relaxing to paint the trees. I stuck to classic green here. Gonna give some fun funky colour combos a try next. :)
