Joy of Christmas

Joy of Christmas 2011

Hope everyone had a nice week end. Mine was very nice. Their was 8 of us all girls friends that got together on Sunday at 11:00am and we made Christmas card all day long, I did not get home until about 11:30pm we had a great time. It was a great day and had lots of fun.
This is my card I made for the Card For Man challenge. I used Whimsie Doodles images called “reindeer range” and “deer friend”. The stamped sentiment “Merry Christmas” I used is from Rubbernecker. The challenge is FANCY FOLDS. I did for my card what is called “Stair Step Fold Card” and you can fine the tutorial here.

Start Date: 21 November 2011
End Date: 5 December 2011

In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online.

Joy of Christmas side I cut out a couple of tree’s from my Spellbinder die cut. I was inspired by some of my stickers that I found and thought they are so perfect for this card. The Penguins and the candy canes are from Recollections Dimensional. Diamond Dust for some snow from Flora Craft. Punch is called Linked Trim from Martha Steward. I burnish the edges with Brilliance with Brilliance sky blue and stamped the sentiment with Brilliance Mediterranean Blue.

I did color my images with copic markers. I also found some ribbon I had that had some Penguins on it so I woven it in and out on the punched linked trim and that is how it turned out (Not sure if I said that right).

Have a super week.

Hugs, Patricia
