ASM - Holly Jolly Christmas ...

...  Good evening everyone.  Only three weeks to go until Christmas!!!  It seems to have suddenly arrived.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!   This week our challenge is Addicted to CAS.  Our sponsor this week is DigiDarla Designs and the prize is five images of the winner's choice.  Here's my card using our sponsor's image:

Stamps: DigiDarla Designs - Christmas Presents 4; Stampin' Up! - A Banner Christmas; My Favourite Things - Christmas Sentiments
Inks: SU - Tempting Turquoise; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Sakura Stardust Pens; Copics; SU Card - Pacific Point

One of the things I like about digital images is that you can print off multiple copies of the image and at sizes to fit your cards.  I took the basic image, copied it several times at different sizes, printed them and coloured them using a selection of blue and green Copics.  Then I cut them out being careful of the ribbons.  I used my Copic pen to create the mat layer so that it matched the parcels.  Most of the parcels have been glued directly to the card, but the three square parcels have a bit of dimension.  I went for a simple, bold sentiment for the front of the card.  Inside is simply a mat layer to match the front of the card and a bold Christmas sentiment.

Don't to forget to check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team.  Oh yes, it seems that the Holiday theme was very popular, it's going to be very hard to pick a winner!!


That's all for now - I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!  Bye for now!

I really love the blue that you have used on this card. The images are fantastic in their different sizes. I must remember that technique to use my markers to create a matt layer!! Thanks for the tip! xx
