I have made a christmascard with Papirdesigns new christmaspapers. This years christmaspapers are absolutely lovely, so, hopefully, I'll manage some more with them.
I have masked two Magnoliaimages together. I haven't been a "masker" earlier, but borrowing a chairimage from a friend really got me started. Now I tell myself I don't have to mask everything - LOL
All paperedges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
I used som brown lace, and brown backing behind the image and the tag (Magnolia DooHickey).
The red ribbon has a little presentcharm attached.
The paperlace is made with Martha Stewarts Doily Lace Edge Punch.
For santas beard I used LiquidAppliqué. On his suits fur trim I used Glistening Snow Writer (from Deco Art). I have discovered that it doesn't go very well with DistressMarkers, that this image is coloured with. Just with a little touch it kind of sucks the distressink and spreads it. It even happens on images that are coloured weeks ago...
But - it's glittery, so I can't resist it - LOL
The inside, clean and simple decorated with only a greeting and some tiny red halfpearls. The paper is the same as one on the front.
Now, I'll send my christmascard to the following challenges, and X my fingers:
