Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
I feel guilty that I have not make any Christmas card this year. Thus, I made one today. Furthermore, most of the challenges theme are Christmas related.

On a piece of white card stock, the hanging lights are stamped randomly to create a own made pattern paper or background. Then, the light bulbs are colored with various Copic markers. The finish background is then trimmed to size and attached onto a red card base as in sketch. At the bottom of the background, it is attached with a piece of leftover Christmas theme pattern paper.

Close-up: Fishtail banner with sentiment
On a piece of card stock, it is trimmed into a fishtail banner as in sketch. The sentiment is stamped at the upper part of the banner before it is distressed with ink give it ore festive feel. It is attached onto the card as in sketch.

Close-up: Santa's hat
Finally, on a die cut circle, a Santa's hat is stamped and colored using Copic marker. I apply a thin layer of glossy accent to the furry areas of the hat and sprinkle some glitter powder onto it. It create some texture and also a shinny look! As finishing touch, I added some faux stitching to the circle using glitter silver pen. It is attached onto the card as in the sketch using foam tape.
