Tree Dress Avery



I recently won a challenge at The Outlawz Monday Greetings challenge and have been invited to be a Guest Designer for the next 2 challenges. 


The sponsor for December is Paper Nest Dolls
They have some really sweet images in their store and they are lovely to work with.



The challenge for the next 2 weeks is to use the colours Red, Green & Silver. 
As I am still in Christmas card mode that is very easy to achieve.

The image I have used is Tree Dress Avery. I have coloured it with Promarkers, a silver gel pen & a red glitter pen. I have used some red glitter glue and added some iridescent glitter to the baubles to make them more sparkly. The image has been matted onto some silver mirror card.

I used the latest Stella Says Sketch 820 for the basic layout of the card. The papers are offcuts from other cards I have made. The glittery red snowflake strip has been recycled from an old card I have received and is the perfect accent for the red glittery baubles.


The tree is a die from The Works. I have cut from green card and then matted onto silver so the sentiment shows through from underneath. I fussy cut around this to give a contrasting border around the edge. There is also a star that you can cut separately but as Avery is holding the star in her hand I didn't cut this. The little red gems cover holes that are cut in the die. As a final touch I added some green star shaped gems to the top corner.

There are lots of challenges The Outlawz with many prizes up for grabs every month. If you are not already a member I would highly recommend you take a look. It is a great community to be a part of and there is a fabulous gallery full of inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the members.

  1. Isn't she just the cutest! I'm a bit of a paper hoarder, and always find myself drawn to paper choices on a card. Yours are perfect for the image! Love your little sentiment tree, and the balance you've added with your little stars. Thanks for sharing this with us at Passion for Promarkers!
