This is truly my last Christmas card and I figured I may as well make it fit a challenge before I go on to other things so I’m adding it to the Caffeinated Christmas challenge. I couldn’t resist this digi stamp by Sassy Stamps and have to say that the owner of this little store is wonderful to deal with. I had some downloading issues and she kindly resent them in a format that was less challenging for me to access.
I resized the image using CorelDraw and then printed it ready for colouring. I used a combination of pencils and a bit of watercolour shimmer paint to add the colour. I also added a bit of glitter to the hat bell and the tiny heart underneath the sentiment, as well some Sakura glaze to the buttons and shoes. Sentiment came with the image. I used a leftover piece of frosty looking CS for underneath the focal image and chopped the corners using a small punch. Did the same to the focal panel and then added it all to the card front. A few dew drop gems and it was complete.
I hope you are all ready for Christmas and having fun in the preparation. I finished adding some greenery to our front porch and a couple of red bows and consider everything now set for the season. Thanks for taking a look.
