IIC #116 - Christmas in July
Good morning everyone. I know what many of your are thinking -- a Christmas card already? In our part of the world, the weather has just turned warm (ok, HOT), and few of us are ready to begin thinking Christmas. We are thinking more in terms of beaches and swim wear, flip-flop shoes and shorts. None the less, the holiday will arrive all too soon and many of us will be scurrying around trying to get our cards ready for mailing, so we at Inky Impressions would like to give you a nudge to get started early.
For my card, I have used Nickie's Winter Wishes digital stamp which you can find HERE in the Inky store. I have colored Nickie with Copic markers on X-Press It brand card. My card base is white. All of my DP are by Echo Park from the Very Merry Christmas 6 x 6" pad. I matted the green piece, the stripy piece and the dotty piece with black card, and I matted my image with green. The snowflakes were punched using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and then coated with Stickle's crystal glitter. I tied my gold ribbon by Offray into a double bow and added a pewter colored Christmas tree charm. Lastly, I cut out my round sentiment and colored around it with my red Copic marker.
Please visit our Inky Impressions challenge blog and have a look at what the other team members have made to inspire you. Then, we'd love to have you join us this week in our Christmas challenge -- hey, you know its coming, so you might as well get started (smile).
