Happy Christmas

Did everyone get a chance to pick up some of the new Christmas images from Lili of the Valley?   It’s so hard to choose a favorite because they are all so cute!  Lili of the Valley offers free shipping worldwide on orders over 25 pounds (currency not weight) which is about $40.

I have a card to share today using the new Feathered Friends image.  It’s such a sweet image.  I used some patterned papers from the Everybody Loves Christmas line from Echo Park and added lots of stitching.  I used these flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts: White Hellebores, 25mm Wild Red Roses, 15mm Open White Roses, 8mm Semi-Open Red Roses, and 4mm Closed Red Rosebuds.

I colored the image with these copic markers: E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, YG17, YG63, YG67, B34, B37, R24, R29, R46, R89, Y38, E55, E57, E59, E81, E87, BG000, BG01, BG02, R02, E33, E35, E37, E25, E29, colorless blender.  While the image was still in the rectangle nestability die, I lightly sprayed around the edges with a blue copic marker and my air compressor.   I added some white fun flock to her hat and coat using a Quickie Glue Pen and some white flower soft below their feet using Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue.

I used a sentiment from the Happy Circular Sentiments stamp set and framed it with some flowers.  I adhere my flowers using the Aleene’s glue, too.

I decorated the inside of my card to coordinate with the outside using the same patterned papers.  I added a sentiments from the A5 Verses stamp set and red poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Have a wonderful weekend!
