52CCT - Theme ....

... Good morning all!  We're having such wonderful warm summer weather that it's been really tough to think of Christmas cards this week, and I only finished this card late yesterday afternoon.  It's our theme challenge here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Julie has picked a really fun theme - you need to make your Christmas or Winter card "FOR A CHILD".  Here's my take:

Happy Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Docrafts - Forever Friends Stamp G, Forever Friends Stamp H (both discontinued)
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Memory Box - Postage Rectangular Layers (30052) # 3 and #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Pink Pirouette; Martha Stewart Glitter; Copic Markers


I used pastel colours on my card (soft pink for a little girl) so I'm submitting this card to Merry Monday - MM#168 and as there's a bit of a postal theme going on, I'm also playing along with Jingle Belles - JB:15:17.

I stamped the teddy on some white card, coloured her with Copic markers and then fussy cut her out.  I die cut the white postage stamp and then stamped the sentiment and teddy.  I adhered the coloured imaged directly on top and added some glitter to her hat.  I cut another stamp layer in pale pink and adhered both to the card base.  I've not done the inside yet - but will add a picture later.  I think this would look really sweet in pale blue too!  Edited:  I've finished the inside - fairly simple, a mat layer of pink card and another Christmas image with these cute teddies!

I do apologise for the quality of the picture inside!

Don't forget to visit the blog to see what the rest of the team have made this week.  See you soon.
