Deck The Halls
Ho, Ho, Ho...Merry Christmas!!! We originally had planned to spend the day with my in-laws in the traditional holiday fashion... snacking on yummy food and playing lots of card games but the winter storm we are getting sure changed that in a hurry. So, we are languishing away at home today watching the beautiful snow fall!!! We are thinking to go outside this afternoon and see how big of a snowman we can make. At the moment my husband and the cats are napping so I thought I would pop in and share the Christmas card I sent to the family this year!
The card base is a half sheet of Riding Hood Red cardstock folded in half. I punched the corners of a slightly smaller piece of Starlight patterned paper from the BasicGrey Dasher collection before adhering it to the card base. The shadow layer is a strip of Snowfall Ice Blue patterned paper layered on to a slightly larger piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Fluffles Garland Cling Rubber stamp and was colored in using Tombow N75, 076, Copic R29 and Baja Breeze Ink with a Blender Pen then layered on to a slightly larger piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock. The image was attached to the card base with Scotch Foam Mounting Tape.
To embellish the card I stamped pieces of garland in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the x stamp set then cut them out using paper snips and adhered them to the shadow layer. I added a bow made with dotted red organdy ribbon and to finish off the card I added a small silver brad in each corner of the card base.
Wishing you a joyous holiday season!
