It’s Not Quite Looking Enough Like Christmas

ChristyCopics, Glitter Ritz, Ink & PaperLeave a Comment

I have a Christmas card to show you today. This one’s been in the works for about two and a half days. At this rate, I should have my cards done by mid-February.

There are a couple things I love about this card. First, I think I finally got the hang of coloring on glitter with copics. The blends in this one are so much more smooth. I also love the background, which I made with metal from Ten Seconds Studio and a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

I don’t love the edging, I think the glitter is too much, and I didn’t have a steady enough hand with it. Oh well, lessons for next time.

Ten Seconds Studio metal – Apple Green
Red cardstock from my stash

And, just for fun, there’s a sleepy puppy picture after the jump.

How sweet is that? She likes to hang out with me while I work.
