A Christmas Card Tutorial

Time flies! It's been almost a year since the last time I visited my blog! I've been playing a lot more with paper and a lot less with fabric over the past year!  I still plan to make bears, but it's been over a year since I finished my last bear...time to start a new one!

I was recently asked by a lady from the facebook group "Tim Holtz Addicts" if I could provide a tutorial for a Christmas card that I shared on the site.  Tonight, I did my best (albeit lacks the professionalism of most tutorials), I'm hoping it helps the lady who asked!

The supplies I used were:
* Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
* 90 lb. watercolor paper for the flowers and leaves
* 140 lb. watercolor paper for the background and folded card base
* Tim Holtz Sizzix dies used:  Seasonal Scroll (664216), Tattered Poinsettia (658261), Holiday   Greens (658759) and Skeleton Leaves (663094)
* Recollections Clear Stamp and Die Set: Christmas Words
* Distress Oxide Sprays in various blues and greens
* Distress Spray Stain and Distress Mica Spray/Distress Oxides
* Distress Sprayer with water
* Distress Splatter Brush
* Fondant Steel Ball Tools (they can be purchased on eBay or Amazon)
* Mini Prills for the Stamens (they can be purchased on eBay or Amazon)
* Art Glitter Glue
* Glossy Accents
* Hot Glue
* Nuvo/Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Pen Brush

Here is my photo tutorial ...

Sorry there are so many photos!  Maybe one day I will learn how to make a short video!
