I am really trying this year to get my Christmas cards done early. Last year I was still making cards at the last minute. Hopefully that won't be the case this year. So here we go again with another Christmas card.
I wanted to make a fun card. Something I might be able to give to one of my nieces or my kids. I recently won this image over at Inky Impressions. I love their images. I colored her with Whisper Strokes, Copics and Stampin' Up markers. I added some Stickles by Ranger and some Liquid Applique on her hat, collar and boots for the fuzzy look. I also used a white gel pen. I popped her up with some 3D dimensionals.
This design is a sketch from Christmas Challenges. I usually don't do 5x5 cards but this needed the size. I used patterned paper from Bearly Mine and Papercraft Inspirations. The sentiment also comes from Papercraft Inspirations. The remaining papers are Bazzill, Core 'dinations and some generic. The wreath is a new one I have from Disney. It has a die cut and then an embossing folder for the design. The other embossing pattern is from Darice. I used it on the die cut from Stampin' Up. I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink to pop up the design. The ribbon I used comes from C&G. The pearls are from Queen & Co. and the flowers from Martha Stewart. Finally the little teddy bear hanging from the wreath is a charm from Inky Impressions.
