Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron here with a colorful Mixed Media Holiday Card to send peace, love and joy to anyone on your list.

Step 1: To create my card, I gathered my supplies together including a piece of vintage book paper from my stash, Scribbly Small Birds stamps, Scribbly Small Bird Cousins stamps, Just What to Say stamps and some Picket Fence Distress Paint.

Step 2: I cut my book paper down to size then used a Splatter Brush to add some Picket Fence Distress Paint for a snowy effect.

Step 3: Then I stamped the images I was going to use in Jet Black Archival Ink.

Step 4: To color the images, I used both of my sets of Scribble Sticks and I colored in the flowers and leaves in different shades of blues and greens by wetting a paintbrush and picking up the color directly by touching the wet brush to the Scribble Stick. Once they were dry, I fussy cut all the images out.

Step 5: I wanted to have something to ground all my pieces on, so I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Branches die, and placed my birds on top of the branch. Then I added the flowers and the sentiment that I also fussy cut.

Step 6: Once the main panel was done, I cut and sanded the edges of two pieces of Metallic Confections Kraft Stock to mount it onto. Then I mounted it all onto a kraft note card.
