It’s getting real… Christmas lights are popping up around the neighborhood and we are now only six weeks away from Christmas! My son’s friend reminded me that Thanksgiving comes first and he doesn’t want to hear about Christmas until then, but as someone who enjoys sending a handmade card to everyone on my list, I’m staying aware of the countdown 😉
With that in mind, every card challenge I see gives me ideas for my Christmas cards. This card was inspired by this layout at Sketch Saturday.
The image was colored with Copic markers with additional detail added with colored pencil. (See this post for some tips about that.) After fussy-cutting the image, I worked with the sketch to direct my layering and backed the panel with Silver Foil. And of course, sequins… they remind me of the sparkle of lights on a Christmas tree.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed seeing this card and are also enjoying creating your own Christmas cards. And for those who only want to think about Thanksgiving right now – enjoy it! Only one week to go!
