Hello, it’s Gaylynn. Today, I am sharing a tropical Christmas card with Copic marker coloring. Most markers or color mediums are fine to use with compatible ink for stamping.
This is a great holiday card for those of us who live in tropical climates year-round. We don’t have snow but still enjoy the holiday season and traditions.

In summary, here are helpful tips for making this tropical Christmas card with Copic marker coloring. To begin, prepare an A2 sized card base in white. Then, die-cut a cover background or emboss a background panel. Next, stamp the hibiscus flower using alcohol friendly ink onto white cardstock. Then, begin coloring in the flowers and the leaves using blended shades of the same color family. I used tropical colors for a clean and bright look. Next, fussy cut (cut out) the flower and the sentiment. Finally, using foam tape, layer the background, the flower, the sentiment and gems over the background, to finish.
Here is another look.
