Christmas Night

OK, so Janice said I really should try to post every day until October 3rd as part of the World Card Making Day blog tour. Still not promising but I figured one way to get closer might be not to make something new every day but to show you some things I haven't got round to blogging! So here's the first...

This is created with the same stamp set I used for Monday's project but I haven't used any of the same stamps - gotta love a set that lets you create a variety of looks!

I created a frame for this little scene by stamping the image once and cutting out the middle, then stamping again and colouring the scene. The holly frame is coloured on both pieces. I lined up the cut out frame and mounted on foam tape so there's some dimension going on.

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
Night Before Christmas (Rummage Bin line)

Cryogen White
Simply Smooth
(red is done with a marker on white)

Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Espresso)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Crimson Red)

Copic markers
Copic Spica At You glitter pen (clear)
Pearls (Kaiser)
Foam tape
Detail scissors
Sewing machine and thread

My DH actually commented on this card completely unprompted the other day which is unusual for him so I guess I must have done something right with it!

If you've dropped by as part of the blog tour and would like the discount coupon code for the PaperCrafts/CK store, it's in the side bar on the left of my blog and also in Monday's post of the other project with this stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed the card!

Isn't it nice when a DH notices something we have made without us waving it under their noses??? I can understand him noticing this one too Joanne. It looks so fresh & you can imagine the snow in the picture.....a really lovely card X
