Holiday Cards

I’m participating in Freshly Made Sketches weekly challenge again. I’ll be honest, sketch challenges are hard for me! How do you feel about sketch challenges? It seems like they should make designing your card easier, but for me, that is not the case. I had fun participating last week, so I decided to challenge myself by participating again. This time, I created two cards.

Card #1

For this card, I used the Reindeer Games stamp set from My Favorite Things. I love this little deer/gal! I used the following Copics to color her: C3,C2,C1(shoes) R00,E00,E13 (skin) E21,E23,E25 (outfit) R29,R59 (nose and red bulbs) Y13, Y11(yellow bulbs) B02,B00 (blue bulbs) YG17, YG05 (green bulbs) Y00, Y21,YR12 (hair).

I enjoy adding glossy accents to my projects. Here, I added it to the bulbs and her nose.

Card #2

For this card, I used the Mistle Toad stamp and die from Newton’s Nook. I’ve loved this toad for a few years. Isn’t he so cute? I colored him with the following Copic markers: R29, R35,R59 (bow) YG11,YG91,YG95 (toad) YG03,YG17,YG67 (mistletoe).

I added glossy accents and popped this guy up to add some dimension.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
