Yesterday I started working on this card for as gift to a family member. I started with this wonderful Santa image from Mo’s Digital Pencil called And I Want A… and Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge Sketch 53 (MTSC53).
I used this image not to long ago on a card for our babysitter. I love how both of them turned out. This maybe me favorite Christmas image… well at least this year.
I used the gorgeous My Mind’s Eye paper The Merry Days of Christmas and Java Bazzill Cardstock (pretty much my favorite when it comes to brown cardstock).
I modified the sketch just a little and made the main panel square because I didn’t have a large enough circle die for this image.
Here’s a look at the inside:
I needed to make the inside a gift card holder so I glued down the sentiment panel with the top open so I can slide the gift card right in.
Here’s a closer look at the details:
I embossed both sentiments (I’m getting better at it) and sponged everything with Walnut Distress Ink. And added two little taggie buttons and it’s done. 😀 And the main image is colored with Copics… a ton of Copics, lol.
I’m not sure if I’ll be posting again before Christmas, I’ve got a LOT of cooking and cleaning to do in the next day and a half so if I can’t get back to the computer I hope you have a fantastic holiday!!!
