ChristmaTini

This week is winding down so quickly and I hadn't done my Christmas card of the week yet, so I decided today was the day.

I reached for my ChristmaTini image from Stamping Bella (love all the 'tini images...they're so fun!) for this card. I used this week's Mojo123 sketch for the layout and flipped it to work with the image.


The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I used my rectangle Nestabilities to cut it out then layered it onto night of navy. The tree is cut out and popped for dimension and I added sparkle to both the ornament and the tree with my blue Spica glitter pen. Once I was done colouring everything I gave the glass three coats with my clear Glaze pen.

I ran the baja blue background throught my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder before layering it onto kiwi kiss. The patterned paper is from the SEI Glitzma line. I added lots of buttons from my stash and of course one of my beloved ghost snowflakes. I have a really good stash of them but I couldn't resist picking up a few more packs while I was at CHA last weekend.  :)

Have you made your card yet for this week's Bellarific Friday challenge? The theme is Birthdays and we all need plenty of birthday cards every year so there's no excuse not to play along. Submit your card to Em by the end of the day today and you just might win $20 Bella Bucks. Then we get to see everyone's creativity tomorrow on Bloggabella.

Thanks for stopping by!
