Christmas again?

I keep making Christmas cards. No wonder with the weather we’re having. Not exactly summer temperatures to brag about..

This one is made with patterned papers from Inkido; “Noter Röd” and “Flinga Röd”. The cardstock is Bazzill Vanilla and the image is “Carol Singing” from Lili of the Valley, colored with Copics (photo of the Copics I’ve used at the bottom of the post).

I’ve turned it into a shaker card using Doodlebug sugar coating lily white glitter and a leaf of gelatine. I’ve put crackle accents on the glass of the light post (I know it’s invisible in the photos, but trust me, it’s there). I’ve also put stickles star dust on the kids’ hats.

I’ve put dark red and cream roses from WOC on the entire right side of the image, along with a tag I’ve made that reads “Merry Christmas” in Norwegian (stamp from Kort & Godt). The branch punch I’ve used is from Martha Stewart. The lace is one that I’ve had for ages.

I’ve used the same setup on the insides as I’ve done on the front. The snowflake stamp is “Kristall stor” from Inkido, the text is a stamp from Stempelglede of the Norwegian lyrics to “Silent Night” (“Glade jul”).

 I traded the roses on the front for snowflake punches from MS (Himalayan, Alpine and Glacial). The red pearls on the snowflakes are from Inkido.

The back is also made very simple with a mistletoe stamp from Stempelglede and the same snowflakes as the insides. The entire card has been doused with Glimmer mist dazzling diamonds. The sparkle doesn’t seem that apparent in the photos, though.

I’m participating in this week’s Lili of the Valley challenge with this card (#101 – Bring on the music). Between the sheet music, a carol singing “choir” and lyrics, I think I’ve met the criteria with this one.

Before I forget, as promised; a photo of the Copics I’ve used to color my image.

I made “Top 3” at Lili of the Valley Challenge with this card.
