I have a quick and easy Christmas topper technique to share as I managed to make all these toppers from an A4 sheet of smooth cartridge paper and it only took me around 20 minutes to make the background colours.
I cut my A4 sheet into 8 roughly equal pieces and then used my 3x5 Gelli Plate with Fossilised Amber and Twisted Citron Distress inks which I applied lightly and misted with water before pressing the paper on, repeating this with all the paper then leaving to dry.
I then used the Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas stamp set to stamp the trees and greetings on with Archival Fern Green ink. I then applied a random pattern with the Amber Distress ink and the That's Crafty Distressed Harlequin Dinky Stencil. You'll see there's a sneaky one with trees stencilled which I did first and then decided was a bit much! I ran the green ink round the edges of each piece to make them stand out a little.
Here's a very simple card I made with one of the toppers - it's fairly flat to be post friendly.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
