Last Tree Cards - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 7th of December, 2018

Hi All!

It is the last challenge of the year at Winter Wonderland!

And the end of year theme is:


Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

This challenge will go until the 3rd of January next year and from next year we are changing to monthly instead of fortnightly challenges. We will be posting a new challenge on the first Friday of every month.

So back to this challenge, we are sponsored by...

The prize for the winner of the challenge is 2 digis of their choice.

Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. Here you will find monsters, aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many more.

So on to my card this challenge - I have used the Last Tree in the Shop and I have digitally printed it on to X-Press It Blending Card and then had my Silhouette Cameo cut out the image. He actually behaved this week! :) I printed and cut a few images of the same size with the intention of making a pack of six little cards and envelopes.
I have only had time to finish two of them:

I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:

  • tree - E71, E74, E77
  • star - Y32, YR15, clear Wink of Stella
  • baubles - Y28, BV000, BV01, BV04, V12, V15, V17, clear Wink of Stella
  • "soil" - E99
  • base - R22, R24, R27, G02, G05, G07, clear Wink of Stella
  • background - BG0000, BG000, BG10
I have adhered the coloured image to small square Kraft cards from Envelope Solutions.

Then I have used my behaving Silhouette Cameo to cut out some small envelopes from Metallic Red Canson Messages paper.

Here is a close-up of the colouring - you can actually see the sparkle!

I will add these cards to the following challenges:
