It's hard to believe how quickly this year is speeding by. I don't know if it's because we have a new baby and are busy with family stuff, but I don't know where the year has gone. Christmas will be here before we know it! Today, I thought I would share a cute little Christmas card I created using Penny Johnson's Jolly Holly image. I love this image! (Of course, I love all Penny's Christmas images so it's not very surprising that I love this one, too.)
I paired my image with some patterned paper from Echo Park and colored my image with copic markers that coordinate with my patterned papers (colors listed below). Then, I added lots of stitching, some candy apple red wrinkle ribbon, and some buttons and leaves layered to resemble holly.
I also added some white flock to Santa's hat and coat, some white flower soft as snow beneath their feet, and some glossy accents to Rudolph's nose, the holly on Santa's hat, and the holly on the present. Copic markers used to color my image: E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, W5, W7, W9, YR16, YR18, Y17, BG23, BG34, YG67, G29, C1, C2, R27, R46, R89, E00, E21, E11, R12, B0000, colorless blender.
Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
