Hi there 🙂 With all the Christmas in July activity, it gave me just the push to double down on my Christmas card making! I printed off this adorable digi stamp from Lili of the Valley, then took the time to look through the smaller pieces of Christmas papers to establish a color scheme.
I keep telling myself that things go a lot easier when I pick my papers before starting to color, but seldom do it!! Sucker for punishment, I guess!! I colored up James Christmas Tree with my Copics, then added a bit of Stickles on the snowflakes and star for some sparkle.
Since the papers were already picked out, the card went together fairly quickly and easily. I layered the printed pieces and the image, matting everything in a dark blue, then added a layered die cut sentiment and some home made enamel dots (made with paper dots with Nuvo clear coating them) to finish things off. Love how coordinated everything is in the finished product!!
