Holly & Jolly

Hi All,

Thanks for stopping by today - I have one last Christmas card to show you for the month, as our theme this month was holidays! 

My card base is Whisper White, then a layer of Basic Black, then Marigold Morning, then white again, and that was embossed with my Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder.  I added a strip of Close to Cocoa CS, punched with my Martha Stewart gingerbread man edge punch.  The sentiment is an SU rub-on, put onto Basic Black CS, and punched out with my 1 3/4" circle punch.

The image is one of the A Day In The Life series (love those images!), called Santa's Knee.  I printed that onto PTI White CS - I like to use that cardstock for images with a lot of small details so that my Copics are less likely to bleed all over the place. I coloured the image with Copics, and it was matted onto Basic Black. 

Don't forget - there are always a few challenges running over on the ISS blog - so get your creations in for a chance to win some digis!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
