Cindy is hosting this week’s challenge at Holly Jolly.
Our Theme is: Reason for the Season
To me Christmas is a time to celebrate and get in touch with family and friends. So one way we all get in touch with family and friends is to create our Christmas cards and send a Christmas Wish.
Our challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and I have used an image called Mail Girl.
She is sending all those Christmas cards for us all to celebrate the season.
I have coloured the image in using my Copic Markers and I have used a number of dies including SU Ovals Framelits, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Venetian Motifs, Spellbinders Nestabilities Beaded Ovals and Memory Box Peaceful Snowflake Frame Dies.
The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Teen Tiny Sentiments stamp set and I have punched it out using the Modern Label Punch.
The papers are from a collection pack by Sullivans and the ribbon is retired Old Olive Satin Ribbon. From my stash I have used a SU Frosted Finishes embellishment and some lace.
I wanted a sort of vintage look and the papers had a sort of distressed look to them plus I have also added extra ink on the beaded oval shape and the snowflake label using a sponge and Baked Brown Sugar ink and the Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
The ink and red cardstock is retired Riding Hood Red. The sparkle in the snow is created using some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. There is also some bling on the snowflakes around the image.
Here is my card:
The Copic markers:
Coat/Hat/Stockings: YG91, 93, 95, 97
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 21
Shoes/Mailbox: W00, 1, 3, 5
Post: E40, 42, 43, 55
Lots of elements but I love the end result.
