Christmas decorations with Sandy Art®

You can use Sandy Art® to decorate almost anything. You can use it to make cards, but also on other surfaces such as a candle.
The new double-sided adhesive motifs enable you to create a decoration even faster and easier. As the double-sided motifs have a mildly adhesive layer, they can also be removed from an object.
It is recommended to use the basic materials listed below for all examples:
-    Sandy Art® spoon, no. 1.0105
-    Sandy Art® liner, no. 1.0106
-    Sandy Art® brush, no. 1.0008
-    Sandy Art® hobby knives, no. 1.0101

What you need for the candle and the card with holly sprigs:

   
What you need:
-    Sandy Art® double-sided adhesive motifs no. 1.9990
-    Sandy Art® brilliant sand green no. 5.0010 and brilliant sand red no. 5.0011 and brilliant sand gold no. 5.0001 or, instead of the above:
-    Sandy Art® glitter box no. 1.9945

-    Two-tone paper stars green no. 8.6130 double card size 9.5 x 9.5 cm
-    Red paper, size 6.5 x 6.5 cm
-    White paper, size 6 x 6 cm

Instructions:
For the card:

Stick the cards of the various sizes one on top of the other using glue or strips of double-sided adhesive foil.
Remove the protective layer from the sheet with double-sided adhesive holly sprigs.
Remove the adhesive shape from the sheet carefully using a hobby knife or tweezers and stick it onto the card.
Press it firmly and sprinkle green brilliant sand on it. Press firmly and brush or dust off. Now stick the three little balls to/on it and sprinkle red brilliant sand on them. Press firmly and brush or dust off.  You may put little stars from one of the other sheets with double-sided adhesive motifs all round the picture. Sprinkle gold brilliant sand on them, press firmly and brush off. Now your mini-card is ready.

Instructions: 
For the candle:

In case of a round object such as a candle it is easier to cut the motif you have chosen roughly from the sheet with double-sided adhesive motifs. Remove the protective layer, sprinkle sand on the motif, brush off and only then stick it on the object.

In case of a candle with a diameter of about 6 cm, you stick four holly sprigs on the circumference at intervals of about 3.5 cm. Stick three one below the other and put two holly sprigs in between them.

The motifs are mildly adhesive, so press them firmly on the surface before sprinkling brilliant sand on them or sprinkle sand on them first and then put them on the card pressing firmly. You may press using the protective layer, which prevents the adhesive layer from being damaged by pressing with your fingers.

Card with clog

     What you need:
-    Sandy Art® double-sided adhesive motifs no. 1.9990
-    Sandy Art® brilliant sand Christmas green no. 5.0010 and brilliant red no. 5.0011

Instructions:
Stick the iris foil (iris foil is self-adhesive) onto the red card and stick the white card on top of it using double-sided adhesive foil or tape.
Copy the pattern of the clog on double-sided adhesive foil white.
Cut out the parts and cut in the pattern on the clog using a knife. Only cut through the top layer of the foil.
Now remove the protective layer of the parts of the clog that should become yellow.
Sprinkle sand on them, press firmly using the brush and brush off the superfluous sand.
Now remove the other parts of the protective layer and sprinkle red sand on them.

To make the black lines in the clog we use the Sandy Art® liner with which lines can be drawn in the sand without damaging the adhesive layer. Draw the lines at the proper places and sprinkle black sand in them. For a wider black line you draw an additional line with the liner.

Now take double-sided adhesive holly motifs, apply them and stick them onto the card as in the photograph.
The double-sided adhesive motifs are applied as set out for the candle and the card with holly.
Stick the parts of the clog on the card by removing the second protective layer. You may raise the upper part of the clog a bit with foam tape to make it seem as if you can step into it. Stick a holly sprig in the opening of the clog and stick
another one partly on the clog and partly on the card.Add a suitable text and now you have an original real Dutch Christmas card.
