This sure looked a lot better before I posted it so somewhere in the transition it lost its clarity but I think it will be okay. This is for the challenge at Lili of the Valley this week of red. green, and white. I love this color combo for Christmas as it's so traditional. Of course, this adorable new image from LOTV, Under The Mistletoe, is what really makes the card so cute. It's just one of many new releases for Christmas this year.
My first attempt at a center step card, and as easy as it looks, I really struggled with the dimensions so made a template and cut it with an Xacto knife. Oh how I wish measurements given were a little more exact as math and fractions have NEVER been one my strong points. I did finally get 8ths figured out on the ruler though....lol
The DP is from Bo Bunny Father Christmas Pack and SU Cherry Cobbler, stamped and colored on Neenah card stock with Copics. G28, 24, 21, 20 - YR24, 23, Y15, 11, 00 - R39, 37, 35 - E74, 71, 70 - E55, 57 - E00, 000, R20 - C5, 3, 1, 00. Viva Decor Cream Pearl was added for the mistletoe berries, stardust stickles for the snow and on the poinsettia's from WOC, velvet white flock for the fur on the coat and polar white FS for the snow on the ground.
I had planned to enter this in the WOC sketch challenge but altered the sketch too much so I'm entering the following challenges:
7 Kids College Fund - Holiday Goodness
Moving Along With the Times - Sparkle
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Girlie Christmas
Tomorrow we will be attending the visitation for the daughter of a dear friend and one of Conley's military comrades, and on Thursday the funeral, so you will probably not hear from me for a few days but I'll catch up with you all as soon as I can. Have a wonderful week.
