Inspired by a Carol

Hi everyone,


Well the count down is on for Christmas!


At Holly Jolly we have a new challenge for everyone and it is to create something that has been inspired by a Christmas Carol.


The little card I have created has been inspired by the Christmas Carol, “Let it Snow” and these cute little penguins almost seem like they are listening to the Carol.


I have gone all sparkly too, I have used the Sponsor’s image coloured it in with Water Coloured Crayons.  I used one of the Labels Collection Framelits to cut out the image, then I applied versamark ink to the whole image added  heat and stick powder, embossed it with the heat tool and then while it was sticky added some Dazzling Diamonds to the whole image.


It looks great in real life - you can see a little in the photo.


The paper is from the Festival of Prints DSP Paper Stack and the sentiment is from the More Merry Messages stamp set.  I also used one of the lovely little brads from the Vintage Trinkets.


Here is my card…




Stamp set: More Merry Messages, Bugaboo Image

Card: Lucky Limeade, Copic Paper, 
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark

Accessories:  Labels Collection Framelits, Festival of Prints DSP Paper Pack, Water Coloured Crayons, Heat & Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Vintage Trinket, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive




Such a cute Christmas card and so sparkly – I love it!
