Christmas Spice

Christmas may only be a few days away, but I'm still making cards!  Doesn't hurt to get a head start on for next year ;).

I just couldn't resist the 'Spiced Orange Pomander' image from Power Poppy.  It brings back memories of home when my Mum used to make these for Christmas.  I've done a couple myself; kinda hurts after a while pushing all the cloves in.  I've also used 'Big 'Ol Bow' for a gift tag.

Sweet Christmas Joy

It's been all things Christmas for me lately, although I do have lots of birthdays this month. The life of a crafter, lol. 
Today I am sharing a simple but fun Christmas card combining two images from Tiddly Inks - 'Christmas Mantle' & 'Sweet Dreams Molly'.  
I usually use 3D foam pads to add a fussy-cut character to a background but I wanted her to stand out a bit more, so I used folded card strips. This also gives some movement to the character.

Products used:

  • Card blank
  • Cardstock
  • ProMarkers - 
    • Christmas Mantle - Henna, Burgundy, Burnt Sienna, Chestnut, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Walnut, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow, Pumpkin, Black, Cool Grey 1-3, Pine, Forest Green, Leaf Green, Apple, Crimson, Poppy, Red, Cool Grey 4 & 5, Holly, Lush Green & Champagne
    • Sweet Dreams Molly - Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Oatmeal, Ivory, Crimson, Poppy, Red, Cool Grey 1 & 2, Pine, Forest, Apple, Chestnut, Saddle Brown, Sandstone & Champagne
First, here are the images after colouring:


And here is the finished card:

It's hard to tell how much she stands out in the above photo, so here's a couple of other views:
