Merry Little Christmas

Hi again!  It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  Karen is hosting this week and has chosen the lovely combination of Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Old Olive, with a "dessert" option to add a touch of silver.  Although we use Stampin' Up colors for reference, participants may use any products you have on hand.

I'm also joining Kathy Rac's 30 Day Coloring Challenge that is going on all during the month of November and the current Anything Goes Challenge at the SSS Wednesday Challenge.

Since this week's colors lend themselves so well to a Christmas card, that is what I made!  I used a cute set from Avery Elle to make a fun little card.

I started with the background panel, blending Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks on Bristol paper, then spraying it with shimmer spray.  When dry, the sentiment, stars and snowflakes were heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  Next, I used Copic markers to color the cute little deer and packages, adding dots to the package and stripes to the ribbon with a silver pen, then die cut the images with companion dies.

The hills were die cut from some Hero Arts specialty paper resembling snow and the scene was assembled on the Bristol panel and adhered to the white card base.  This was a card that will be easy to replicate for the holidays.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great week! And be sure to check out the challenges linked above!
