Moonlight Wishes

Can you believe Christmas is less than a month away?!  I can’t believe how quickly the year is speeding by.  Since my kiddos started school, it seems like I blink and another month is gone!  I’m hoping to get a few more Christmas cards made before I need to get them mailed out.

Today, I thought I would share a card that I made with one of the Lili of the Valley Christmas images called Moonlight Wishes.  This was one of my favorite images from the Christmas releases this past summer.

There is just something so sweet about this image!  I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink.  Then, I colored it with  these copic markers: YG93, YG95, YG97, R24, R27, R46, R89, W1, W3, Y15, Y17, E35, YG17, YG67, E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02, colorless blender.  I created a mask with eclipse masking tape.  Then, I used a BG72 copic marker and my air compressor to spray the sky.  I added some glitter to the moon and stars and some white fun flock the the ball on her cap.

I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s new Holiday Style paper pad.  I added some crocheted lace from May Arts and some baker’s twine from my etsy shop.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley’s Grunge Christmas Postmarks stamp set.

Have a great day!

Did you use a digital image for this cute card? If so, what printer do you use that can handle card stock? Thanks for your help and for all of your inspiration. Take care.

Hi Debbie,
It is not a digital image. It is a rubber stamp available from Lili of the Valley. You can find it here:
When I use digital images, I print them on my Epson Artisan 835. I use the copic x-press it cardstock for my images.
Hope that helps!
