I Think I'm Done!
I think this is the last of my Christmas cards for this year! I love making them, though,
so I may make a few more just for fun!
The first three are done with images from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Isn't this little Elf adorable? I just love her!
I was going to paper-piece the ornament, but messed up when I tried to print the image on the digital DP. All was not lost," as I decided to cut out the ball using an Xacto knife and mount the DP behind it. Before I did, I coated the paper with VersaMark and clear embossing powder to make it shiny.
Tools: Copics, MS Lace border punch and Snowflake punch, Real Red stamp pad, VersaMark pad, Clear embossing powder
Papers: SU! Real Red, Green Galore, Neenah white, PTI White, Digital DP
Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Pearl cabochons
Here's another elf from Mo with a completely different look, but just as cute!
Tools: Copics, MS Snowflake border punch and Branch Punch, Tacky tape
Papers: SU! Real Red, Garden Green, Neenah white, PTI white, Basic Grey DP
Embellishments: Candy canes, Tiny Brads, Square brad, Grosgrain ribbon
I think this is my favorite! The sentiment came from my facebook teamie, Jo Ann Sinclair.
She comes up with such clever sayings for images.
Inside: Hope you're stirring up some holiday fun, too!
Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, White gel pen, Mounting tape, Tacky tape
Papers: SU! Real Red and Kiwi Kiss, Neenah white, Digital DP
Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Button brad
I really like traditional Christmas colors for cards. I'm never satisfied with cards I make
that use unusual colors.
This is a public domain image of a bookplate. The toys were difficult to color because it was hard to distinguish what some of them were!
I layered several ribbons of differing widths for the trim.
Images: Digital vintage bookplate, Computer-generated sentiment
Tools: Cuttlebug with embossing folders, MS Snowflake border punch,
Mounting tape, Glue dots
papers: SU! Real Red, Garden Green, Neenah white, PTI white
Here's an example of the non-traditional colors I mentioned! I liked the image, but couldn't get past the colors I used! Would have liked him better as a red-suited Santa!
Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with embossing folder and Marianne die, Star punch, mounting tape, Tacky tape, Oval punches, Blue ink pad
Papers: Neenah white, PTI white, Bazzill blue
Embellishments: Pearl sprays, Satin ribbon
I do love making Christmas cards and love sharing them with family and friends!
Thanks for looking!
