Simple Painted Holiday Cards with Daisie Scraps

 

Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing a set of cards that I created using my Shimmerz Paints.  I had so 

much fun just painting!  These are simple designs that you can either free-hand or even trace and paint. 

Supplies Used:



I started by dividing my 12x12 Kraft cardstock into 6- 4x6 bases.  I started with the darkest color I was 

using, Penny 4 Your Thoughts, and added some base elements to a few spaces.  This was a great 

shimmery color that was perfect for a tree branch and some pine cones.


 





Next I went in with the greens.  I just added designs that I thought would look good.  A few sprigs and 

some leaves.  I used Buddy’s Favorite color to create poinsettias.  The Blingz were perfect for some shiny 

baubles on a wreath and more pine cones (that ended up looking like leaves).  I had one base left so I 

painted a super easy tree using the Blue Lagoon.  It turned out so sparkly and pretty!


After everything was dry, I went in and added some doodle elements to each card using my Pitt Artist pen.  
I outlined the pine cones, added a trunk to the tree, outlined the poinsettias and just added detail where I 
thought it was needed. 

After I was happy with the cards, I sent the whole sheet through my silhouette.  I used various fonts from 
my computer to embellish my sentiments.  I had the Silhouette cut out the cards for me and had it shave 
¼ of an inch off so that it would fit on the base with a nice border. The only thing left was adhering everything
 to the 4x6 base.  

I created a process video to show how the cards were created.  I would love to have you check it out!
