With Christmas about four months away, I made my first Christmas card using a Penny Black stamp from last year--Mademoiselle Noel. I love these "fashion girls". They're quick to color and appear to have a sassy chic personality.
I seem to be on a green kick lately. I've grown fond of Papertrey Ink's Spring Moss cardstock, which feels like a green version of kraft. The background was stamped with Hero Arts' Magical Background in Peeled Paint distress ink.
The image was colored with Copics and I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the fur trim and her bouquet. I used Reverse Wonky Rectangles--again!--and tied a bit of self dyed seam binding. Some clear gemstones were added for a touch of bling.
Done! One card down and many more to go...But it's a start!
I hope you're having a fun weekend! There's still time to enter my birthday giveaway here. The Magical Background that I used on this card is one of the stamps up for grabs. I'll announce the winners on Tuesday, August 23rd.
