Hi crafty friends! It’s Lien here with a fun Christmas card and matching envelope using some new and old confetti cuts.

One of my favorite products from the latest release is the Tree Confetti Cuts, it’s such a great abstract piece that can easily fill up an entire card front for a quick beautiful Christmas card. But I wanted to try and use it a little differently to stretch my supplies. The easiest ways to do that for me is: 1) pair it with a different product and 2) try a different technique with it.

So I came up with this snowy scene using the Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts. I die cut that from Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm white cardstock (any white cardstock that works well for ink blending will do!), and I colored every "wave" with Reverse Confetti inks. I used Mist for the snowy hills and Iced Aqua, Baby Blue and Navy Blue for the sky. I then also added some splatter with silver metallic paint by Finetec for a sparkly snow effect. I taped all the "waves" together on the back so they'd be easier to handle.

For the trees I used only the very top piece cut with the Tree Confetti Cuts. I again cut these small trees from white cardstock and colored them with inks. I used Lime Green, RC Aqua and Avocado. I added some details to the trees with a white gel pen and made some of the trees shorter with scissors. I adhered everything on a circle card base with foam tape and foam squares. I finished it up with some gems.

For the matching envelope I used the same red cardstock I used as a matting layer on my circle card and folded an envelope from that using the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board. I then die cut 3 more of these tiny trees from post it tape (just put the tape over cardstock and then die cut, peel apart like a sticker). I adhered those onto my envelope then used some of the pieces from the Circle Waves die as stencils to blend on some snowy hills in white pigment ink. I finished it with some snowfall in white gel pen.

That finished up today's project! You can find the video below! I'd love for you to check it out. Thank you so much for stopping by!
