When I found out that the challenge this week was Christmas I had to make a card!
Anything that gets me started so I am not doing the last minute rush is a good thing!
So here is the card I made...
My scrappy mojo seems to come and go these days and yesterday it went out!
It just about took me all day to do this card!
I chose the background and I had the digi stamp that I got from
(it was a freebie)
that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I have to say that adding the polka dots after I was all done coloring in the image was one of my favorite parts.
I used the blender pen to dot the skirt, sleeves, collar and bow's, then went over them with a pale green.
Nothing I did seemed to come together for me!
I decided to take another approach.
I went smaller and made a tag!
I used my pearl dabber on a couple of snowflake stamps for the background of the card.
Added barn door and peeled paint distress inks on top and a little bit of vintage photo distress ink on the edges.
Mounted my little cutie image on a piece of scrap green cardstock,
a couple of pop dots,
a couple of circle pearl sprays, that kinda look like wings, on her back
my tag was done!
Then I was back to "what do I do now"!
The light bulb went on and it was shining on the vellum sheets that I bought years ago and never touched,
I made a slide pocket for the front of the card and slid the tag in!
I added a couple of square blingy pieces, from my stash, around the vellum
and I was done!
One card, to wish a Merry Christmas
one tag for the recipient to hang on their tree!
Here is a peek at the inside of the card...
