It's Getting Close...
It's official... Fall is here! It's chilly and wet and although I love the rain, I am not a fan of the cold. NOR... am I fan of seeing Christmas items popping up everywhere! But, alas, it is a commercial world and I too have to start thinking of this "end of year" event. I have to admit I colored this image a few weeks back but just didn't have it in me to create a card with it until now. When Patricia (the Paper Temptress) sent me an awesome pack of papers, I knew they would go perfect with my Santa image.
My image is from Sherry Baldy and you can grab your copy HERE. I colored Santa and his visitor on Cryogen White and mounted it using pop dots. My card base is the Mica Metallic Emerald and the white layer is also Mica Metallic in Crystal. Now for the cozy part... the Ruche Red Cape. LOVE LOVE this paper!!! For me, it was the perfect texture to add to a winter card with my velvety
Santa suit beside it! This paper also tears well so if you're like me and like the look of a ragged edge, this paper adds even more texture to the mix.
Here's a close up so you can see a bit of the shimmer in these card stocks.
Of course I colored my image with Copic markers and used my Silhouette Cameo to create the snowflakes around the image. A little bow and some bling finished off my card.
If you haven't tried the Paper Temptress' papers yet, you really need to stop by and grab a few sample packs. She has more textures and colors than any site I've ever been to. AND... she carries a few ribbons and flowers as well. I think you'll be surprised as the awesome selection!
As always, I hope you have a great Monday and I thank you for stopping by!!! *HUGS*
