Christmas Usher


Hello! Hope my US friends had a great Thanksgiving and that you all got some fabby Black Friday deals. I can't believe how fast November zipped by and Christmas will be here in less than a month!



Here's a card I made using one of Penny Black's new holiday images called Christmas Usher. Elizabeth Allan has a great video tutorial here and I pretty much cased her card, but substituted the cardstock color and the corner images.

These new Penny Black images are fun and quick to color. A swish of the Copics and her legs are colored. Another swish and her arms are done.





And here's a close up shot of her layered skirt. I added lots of Xmas Red Stickles for some holiday bling. The sentiment is an oldie from Wordsworth.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Whatever you're doing, I hope you're having a fun weekend...

Stamps: Penny Black, Wordsworth, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Bazzill
Ink: Memento, Versafine, Versamark
Other: Copics, Stickles, gemstones
