Holiday Card Collection (5 lessons, $9.90)

Lydia shows you how to make a beautiful and unique Christmas tree card using a white-on-red color scheme. The darker shade of red and the intricate tree in white ink really make this card stand out. For this project, you will need 2 pieces of a pomegranate, or darker red, colored card stock-one for the card base, and also a smaller piece mounted on white card stock for the image base. You will also need a white craft ink pad, an intricate Christmas tree stamp, a white gel pen, a white colored pencil, and a coordinating red satin ribbon.
