Get a Jump Start On Your Christmas Cards!

Here's a fun idea for your Christmas cards this year -- use dimensional paint!  You can apply the paint free-hand, or with stencils.  Here are a couple of examples I made using these paints:

Snow is free-hand, trees were a stencil

Snow freehand

Used stencil for trees & title

 You can get a Christmas selection of dimensional paints from Paper Wishes here.  (NOTE: This is NOT the product for the Blog Hop. That you will find in the post titled "World Cardmaking Day is October 2".) Other products used on these cards include:
  • "White Christmas" Card - base card from Paper Wishes (may have been discontinued, I can't find it listed anymore); white dimensional paint from Christmas set; white ribbon and blue ribbon for bow; "White Christmas" greeting from either "Pop-ups for Christmas Cards" or "Punch-outs for Christmas Cards" - not sure which (got both from PW).
  • "Let It Snow" Card - base card Holly Christmas Card; white dimensional paint from Christmas set; letter and mailbox from "Punchouts for Christmas Cards" (PW - discontinued?); snowflakes are a mini-punch, and the words are a stamped image.
  • "Peace On Earth" Card - base card from green cardstock; focal done using a stencil with green & red dimensional paint from the Christmas set
