… until Christmas. Call me crazy, but that won’t make it any less true. I’m doing my best to keep my Christmas card making going all through the year to avoid being swamped come November. I’m happy with how it’s going so far! For today’s card, I colored up the premerged version of Christmased in no lines. There’s also a version where the kid is a separate image from all that wrapping paper.
I colored my image before diecutting it with the largest of the dies in a stitched rectangle set from My Favorite Things.
I glued a fairly large scrap piece of patterned paper to my cardbase, popped my colored rectangle piece onto it using foam tape and added a piece of a paper doily, some diecut scraps of patterned paper in a cluster and a few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Easy peasy, right? Another Christmas card done, I can check it off my to do list and have one less card to make in the fall.
I love the little sentiment that comes with the image. I printed it, along with my image, from Photoshop, making sure that the color would be close my blue Copics. The color of the sentiment is actually B99, which I didn’t end up using to color my little guy.
Lots of little details in this image, requiring the use of lots of colors!
