Make your own cards

Christmas Cards

I always make my own cards, this year I choose something simple.
Here are the details.

 I cut fir tree shapes to make a stencil, there are so many ideas to choose from.

I used white emulsion paint and a stencil brush

I used recycled paper shopping bags for the background

and made rows of white trees

Then when they were dry I added the green trees using Acrylic paint.

Ready now to be cut to size

I used white A4 card cut in half lengthwise for the back of the card and folded a piece of it back so that the card would stand up.

Then I stuck the stenciled paper to the card

  Don't forget that both emulsion and acrylic paint dries fast..good on the paper... but not on your brush!
