Christmas cards

Hey everyone! I've been trying to get all my Christmas cards done and thought I'd post a few of them. I never make more than three alike....to me it gets a bit tedious.

This stamp is from Great Impressions. I stamped the image twice, cut out the holly and popped it up with dimensionals. The holly is colored with Copic Ciao markers in Go5,R29 and C1. I added some sparkles using the stardust gel pen on the snowflakes. The red berries have a bit of red sparklets glitter by Denami Design on them. The plaid designer paper is from last year and I have no idea who makes it. Red brads are added to the corner to finish off the card.


The deer image is from The Angel Company and I colored him with Copic Ciao markers in R29, E37, E33 and C1. I decided to color his nose red and make him Rudolph. The reindeer back ground stamp is from Auntie Amy's that I bought at a stamp show and is stamped in Impress Emerald green. Bazzill scarlet paper is used to layer both images.

The snow on this one is done with white craft paint and a dots stamp from Stamps by Judith. The tree is from The Angel Company and is stamped in Palette Jardin Moss. The sky is daubered on with sky blue chalk ink from colorbox. The sentiment is Holiday Script from Lizzie Anne Designs.


Have a great day!
