Have you ever tried coloring with die-cut before? It is quite fun and easy.   It also brings the beauty of the die to live.  For my tutorial today, I am sharing a set of 8 die-cut holiday cards colored in Copic.  But you can achieve the same result with any coloring mediums – colored pencils, ink pads, and even watercolor.  For my cards, I used Watching Deer Circle with Snowy Tree Circle die sets from Memory Box.  The yellow background was ink blended with Hero Arts’ Ombre Spring Brights.  The sentiment is from Altenew’s Holiday Wishes.

    This post is also part of my Cards for Little Hearts’ Winter-Theme & Holiday Cards Collection.  We are in the last week of the collection.  The card drive will end promptly this Friday, November 1st.

    2. On a 3.5″x3.5″ white cardstock, cut out the deer circle and color. Copic combo: E42, E55, E57.
    3. Cut out a rectangle frame using white cardstock.
    4. Cut a second rectangle frame and ink blend in a yellow sky.  Adhere to the back of the tree-deer frame with foam tape.  Then, adhere to the card front with double-sided tape.
    5. Pipe on “snow” with white enamel accent to the yellow sky to complete the scene.
