Christmas Cards and Copics

Hello there

Finally I can blog some cards I made a while ago, but the purchaser had not given them to the person who was receiving them, so I was unable to blog them.  It was a family of three so made three matching but different and individual cards and I also made a lovely card for another friend yesterday, but needed to wait to photograph as the light at this time of the year causes so much shadow on our images.

Anyway hope your all organised for the big day and getting excited....................... I know I am but I do enjoy the excitement of xmas and giving presents and cooking for the family.

Anyway enough of that................ here is a card that I am entering in the
Creative Card Crew Challenge - with the theme of "Anything Goes"
and the Just Magnolia Challenge - Anything Christmassy

Just love these "Basic Grey" papers and decided to change my normal layout to something different.  I joined to cards together, diagonally cut them down the front.  Layered up the card using a lovely leather effect paper as the base, used this lovely image from magnolia, coloured her with copic and added just a little liquid applique.  The lace covers both the edges of the diaganol back and front on both sides.  Added little pearls on either side and used liquid pearls for the centre of each of the pale snowflakes.  MSE for the sentiment stamped on cream card and edges distressed.  Ribbon carefully placed around the whole card. Burgundy and white roses to compliment with a little gold/clear button (hobbyhouse) and some pine branches to set it all off.  I added a small touch of red stickles to the edges of the petals on the burgundy roses.

Here are some close ups
The image using copics

The right floral embelishments


The left floral embelishments


The inside - the insert which lifts out without undoing the bow.

Now some images of the set of three cards I made for the family of three
I used my justrite stamps for these for the extra special sentiments.

These I am entering into the La-La Land Crafts Challenge 16  -  Pink and Green

For the parents
