First Christmas Card

Challenge 13 on Cute Card Thursday

Xmas Cards
The challenge this week is to make a Christmas card!
and I used the sketch from our SBS-15 challenge! Thanks Sammi for the awesome sketch. It was very challenging!




So here's my first Christmas card this year, seeing as I NEEDED to ink my Dress up Lily what better way then in her Christmas outfit, with glittery wings and glossy candy!

I found the two circles difficult so made the top one a window and lined with acetate that I stamped snow flakes onto! You couldn't see the snowflakes so I put a darker colour behind!


LOVING Dress up Lily, I stamped her using the masking technique. I added liquid applique to her hat and boots, left to dry completely before heating with heat tool so that it puffs up, very pleased with it!

Thanks for visiting come again soon. HuGs Kim x

This is cute I usually don't even think of Christmas cards until 2week before I should do the challenge and get some done early.
