Theodore is super easy to assemble and looks great in traditional browns, but also makes for a great Panda when made out of black and white cardstock. This festive version of Theo is simple, clean and fun!

Winter Wardrobe die set for the win!

Theo with a top hat and scarf… are you kidding me?! I love him!

This simple Holly die is undeniably one of my absolute favourite dies!

I wanted to create an inked background that worked with the cut out windows of the holly die. So I started off inked a small section of hot pressed watercolour paper with my favourite Christmas red… Candied Apple

Then I added Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover around the outside of the red

I decided I wanted to fade the red out a little into more of an orange, so I added some Mustard Seed between the red and green

And lastly I added some Pine Needles, positioning this darker green towards the tips of the leaves (use your die cut piece to place your ink colours)

I adhered the white die cut holly cardstock over the inked background and then matted that onto a piece of red cardstock.
Seriously… how effective is that?

I stamped falalalala in the bottom right hand corner of the card using my Stamp Press and Archival Ink Pad Jet Black

Using my Mini Wendy Vecchi Make Art Stay-tion, I positioned Theo and stuck him down using double sided foam tape so he was slightly raised

Easy peasy! But honestly one of my favourite card toppers to date
