Christmas in May

Yes, I’ve made another Christmas card. Why? Seriously, is there a free minute in November/December to sit down and enjoy making Christmas cards? I’ve started early. I entered this card into the KOM challenge at scrapping.no  last week. The idea for a Christmas card came to me as soon as I saw the sketch we were supposed to follow.

As always my image (this time “Star of Wonder” by Lili of the Valley) is stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics.

I’ve used patterned papers from Maja Design’s “Gammaldags Jul” collection (oldfashioned Christmas). The inside stamp is the lyrics to “Silent Night” in Norwegian.

I’ve made the back very simple, a few pearls and a fir tree from Inkido and a “Christmas mail” stamp from Papirloftet.

I’ve used the following Copics to color my image (which was somewhat difficult as Copics don’t have reds that match the patterned papers I’ve used):

PP: “Pyntat och fint” and “Julbak” from Maja Design’s “Gammaldags Jul” collection

CS: Bazzill French Vanilla and brown (don’t remember the exact name of this brown).

Size: 6×6″

Embellies: Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from Bikuben, pearls from Kaisercraft (brown) and Inkido (red)

Stamps: Inkido – “Gran”, Papirloftet – “Julepost”, LOTV – “Star of Wonder”, Stempelglede – “Glade Jul” – “Gledelig Jul”
