Today’s challenge over at LaLa Land Crafts is to create a Christmas card. Easy enough with the darling images from the company. I chose the Sunny Christmas Luka image. I stamped him in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (Shirt and Hat: R08, R27, R39  hat rim: N0, N1   Shorts: B41, B45   Bag: E42, E43, E44   flip flops: N1, N3, N5   Gifts: YG01, YG03, YG17, Y13, Y15, Y17   Skin: E50, E51, E53   Hair: YR31, E33, E37) It was cut out. The edges were colored with N3.

A frame was cut and embossed out of black cardstock with the biggest of the small Classic Squares and the largest Lacy Square Nestabilities die. A piece of MME Fly A Kite Lime Twist Paper was cut to fit behind the frame and an edge was sewn to it. White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the patterned paper before the frame was adhered over it.

A 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of the same paper pack was adhered to a 4 3/4″ square of the MME Out of the Blue Paper. the layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock.

The card base was cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die out of light green Core’dinations cardstock. The stitched layers were adhered to the card base. The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Verve’s Winter Mitten stamp set. It was stamped on a piece of Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. The small heart is from the same stamp set. It was stamped in Barn Door Distress ink , outlined with a Copic Multiliner, cut out and adhered to the sentiment with a dimensional. The heart as well as the holly berries were topped with Glossy Accent.

A Want2Scrap Rhinestone swirl was added above the sentiment panel. Baby Bling Rhinestones on the sentiment panel as well as on the lower right corner of the frame finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
