Copic Colored Boy with Ornament Christmas Card

Made for the Oak Tree Stamps Design Team

This is my last card for the Oak Tree Stamps design team. I'm a bit sad to say goodbye but I'm excited to be moving on to my new new design team at Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko. I found this cute tree background paper in my stash and decided to color the boy in the same colors.

Making the Card

1. Cut dark brown cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches; fold in half for a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base. Cut red cardstock with the 5 inch stitched rectangle die (long side dimensions used). Cut the tree patterned paper with the 4 1/2 inch stitched rectangle die. Adhere as shown.

2. Stamp sentiment and boy on alcohol friendly cardstock with alcohol friendly black ink. Optional: draw line for ground on each side of boy's feet. Color boy with alcohol markers.

3. Die cut boy using 3 1/4 inch stitched rectangle die. Cut red cardstock 1/8 inch larger in each dimension (1/16 inch will show around). Adhere together. Die cut sentiment with 2 1/2 inch stitched rectangle. Cut red cardstock 1/8 inch larger. Adhere together. Adhere these to card as shown.

4. Tie bow with red ribbon. Adhere buttons and bow where shown.

  1. Cute card. (I'll pretend you sent it to me).

    1. Funny you should say that; I had a similar card ready to send to you but you didn't give me your address (I asked for it on FB) so it's still sitting here.
