This is my last holiday card for 2010 sadly--I didn't even get to use all my beautiful holiday papers all up so they'll go in my holiday paper bin for next year's projects! I have been wanting to use these beautiful holiday papers from BoBunny and this Magnolia stamp to do an all green card -- so I took time out yesterday to make this Christmas card. I love the way it turned out and it may just be my holiday card to myself this year, hee hee!
I've entered this project in a few fun challenges including "Anything Goes" (to use the letter C for something--so C is for Christmas in my project), Papertake Weekly Challenge (anything goes), 365 Cards (something cute), Paper Playtime (anything Christmas) AND
Moxie Fab World's Trigger Challenge--so my interpretation is a wintry card of course below--except my Magnolia's mittens are just green & not striped :)
"Tilda in Winter Light" (she's out of stock right now) but the MINI version is in stock HERE! But I have one to give away, so see the bottom of the this post for some Holiday Candy! The papers are from Bo Bunny HERE and I used cs from PTI. The pearl swirls are Prima and the sentiment is from PTI. The holly punch-outs are from a MS Jumbo punch, then I inked the edges of the holly with white ink and then coated them with Stickles (stardust). Do you love those embossing layers? They are both done with Sizzix's NEW Basic Grey embossing folders which I adore--they emboss nice & deeply and ink up great (I inked them with SU River Rock ink).
I colored this cutie with Copics (G29,G24,G21,G20/E43,E42,E41,E40) and then I added Diamond Glaze to her boots. To make her sparkly I used my Quickie Glue Pen to dot the fur trim on her coat and hat and then sprinkled Glamour Dust on top--love that stuff! To add just a bit more dimension to the image I double-stamped the lantern and colored it twice. Then I cut out the 2nd one and popped it up for dimension--the glass windows on it have diamond glaze and while wet I sprinkled more diamond glaze on top for extra sparkle!
Blog Candy: I've got an extra Magnolia "Tilda in Winter Light" stamp, a Lacey Circles Nestability set (like I used above), and a pack of Basic Grey "Marjolaine" paper! You can enter by leaving a comment telling me--
