Tutorial Fisrt Chrismas Card

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!

Sharing today a tutorial for a card using First Christmas image by LeighSBDesigns

Pop on over to LeighSBDesigns for full details on how I made this card



Firstly I printed out First Christmas image and 2 of the Fall Roses image (this image can be used for all seasons)



I cut out the baby from the First Christmas image


I coloured the image using Promarker, Ruby Red, Gold, Satin, Dusty Pink, Forrest Green.  I also used a white gel pen, quickie glue pen and Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Glitter


Using the Fall Roses image I die cut the circle 2.5 inch in diameter 


I coloured the image with propmakers, Artic Blue, Colbalt Blue, Meadow Green, Apple 


With the second image I cut out the roses and leaves


I attached the image I cut out to the first image


Attaching baby image through the circle of the card, 4.5 inch x 4 inch then adhered to the base card which I cut slightly larger.

I coloured the Snowflakes with Artic Blue and Colbalt Blue and added Stickles. To the edges of the sentiment I coloured with Distress Oxide, Broken China
