Christmas Classics

This is the last day of this month’s Christmas releases.  Today we have another great set of images designed by Marcella Hawley so raise the curtain on Christmas Classics.

I chose to use just the swag image for my card.  Again I have kept my cards straight forward and easy for the multiples that need to be made for the season.  Here is my card :

 I used the Flourishes Classic white card stock for the base and the oval onto which I stamped my swag image.  I colored the image using Holly, Evergreen, and Poppy collections of Copics.  The copper tone to the jingle bells was done using Copics E33, E37, E39 and then a touch of gold Spica glitter pen. Some slight shadowing was done around the image using B00 from the Robin’s Egg collection.  The scalloped oval was done using the Nestabilities  Big Scallop Oval Large and was cut from mirrored gold cardstock.  I also used a layer of this mirrored cardstock behind the green and dark red both from Basic Grey Jovial paper pad.  The four corners were punched with Fiskars large corner punch.  The red velvet ribbon and Finishing Touch ribbon slide completed the card.

Here is the set for you to view.


I hope this has inspired you to start on your Christmas cards and projects.
