It’s never too early…

IMG_1475…to begin making your holiday cards!  I’ve been making all my holiday cards for the last several years.  After individualizing each one last year I thought I’d make it a little easier on myself this year by creating several cards of the same design.  Yeah…best intentions.  These next several cards you will note that the sweet little Neat & Tangled images from ‘Lumberjack Love’ are colored exactly the same but each card is different.  So, first up…

 

IMG_1478To color the boy and girl I used the following Copic markers:

  • Girl – hair: E43, E47, E49; skin: BV00, E000, E00
  • Boy – hair: E31, Y28, YR24; skin: V12, E11, E33
  • Trees – E39, E29, YG06, G05, G07, G29

After coloring in my images I traced the hillside in pencil and then cut it out.  I cut an A2 panel out of navy card stock and used masking tape to cover the edges.  I taped down the Simon Says Stamp ‘snow’ stencil and covered it in embossing paste.  After placing foam tape on my fussy cut winter scene I attached it to the snow covered panel. 
Finally I cut stars and my sentiment (from Lawn Fawn) out of gold card stock.  I added some Glaze pen to the eyes of my boy and girl to finish the card.  That’s it!
