I printed the image out onto ordinary white card that I'm finding I can paint with my Distress inks. Watercolour card at 300gsm is far too heavy for my printer. I keep promising myself a new printer to print heavy card, but have seen varying reviews about them.
I went looking for Christmas papers and found what I liked in amongst my files. I printed and cut them with dies and also printed out some sentiments in the files. I then cut the image and as I had printed it too big for the die, I cut it with Santa's boot outside the frame. The image and sentiments were added and 3d'd. I love the happy image. After finishing the card I decided that some 3D gloss would be good on the sentiments, boots and eyes. Well, Santa would polish his boots and his eyes would be sparkly don't you think?
