Horsey Christmas

Well, I finally got my first Christmas card for 2022 done 🙂 Usually, I start right off the bat in January, but this year….well…..let’s just say NOTHING has gone to plan 🙁 I used Horsey Holidays, a digital image from Whimsy Stamps. I colored this handsome guy up with my Copics, then added some sparkle to the snowflakes in the image, and some more white snowflakes with a Posca pen.

When I reached into my folder of Christmas theme paper pieces, this was the first one I saw and pulled out, and I couldn’t believe how perfect it was! I used a border snowflake die, as well as a number of small single snowflake dies to cut out the design that I placed on the piece of red CS. After adding a few sparkly touches to the snowflakes, I began layering things. Something was missing, and after a bit, my eyes went to my ribbons…..a very thin green ribbon border on each side of the red strip was just the thing!! I added a stamped sentiment, and a larger snowflake to finish the card off. Aside from the foam used to create a bit of depth with the image and sentiment…this card still meets my flat, easy to mail prerequisite!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
