Christmas Carol Inspiration

Hello and thanks for visiting.


Just sharing with you my card and the details of our new challenge at Holly Jolly.


Our theme is Inspired by Christmas Carol.



I have used one of our sponsor’s images which is from Lacy Sunshine and is called Rory with Christmas Tree.


So my carol is Oh Christmas Tree.


Here is my card:

And I used this wonderful sentiment from Lily of the Valley Sentiment “Oh Christmas Tree” – perfect.


The papers used are Couture Creations Vintage Christmas and Carta Bella Christmas “Cheer Santa is Coming”.


The dies used were from SU Ovals Collection and Nestabilities Beaded Ovals.


Here is a close up of the this sweet image and I have created the white snowflakes with a White Gel pen.

It is not until you go to write down what markers you used to colour the image that you realise some times how many you have used.


This is what I used today:


Face: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R21, 30, 20, B00, 01, 2, 4

Hair: E51, 53, 55, 50, 57

Others used: BG0000, 000, 78, 75, 72, 11, 10

W00, 5, 3, 1

N0, 2, 4

G24, 21, 00
