Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!! I'm in the Christmas card mode now and here's one Christmas card using Power Poppy stamps and digital images.

 I printed the Power Poppy Hollyberries digi on white cardstock - I have shared a tutorial on how I take printout of digital stamps without wasting cardstock here. I colored the image with Copics - G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for leaves and R59, R29, R35 and R32 for the berries. I matted it with red cardstock. I embossed the sentiment "Merry Christmas" from Power Poppy Glistening Paperwhites with black embossing powder from Wow! on vellum. I took a textured light green card stock panel of size 4.25" x 5.5" and embossed the pine leaf image from Power Poppy Glistening Paperwhites with Wow! White Pearl embossing powder. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know that I love this embossing powder. I added a bow (video tutorial here) with ribbon from Dollar Tree after adhering the image panel and the sentiment strip.

I love how this has turned out. I'm enjoying the 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy. It really helps me to get ready for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Your Christmas Holly creation is just stunning Berina and your choice of seasonal colours perfect for our theme at Penny Black and More challenge. However I am so sorry to have to mention that your beautiful card is not eligible as your main element is a digital image and not hand stamped as our rules require.

A beautiful card using the digi. I have been using digi's for awhile and I have my own way of printing them, but I am going to give your video a try. Your card is wonderfully done and I am so happy that you used a Power Poppy stamp for my challenge. I am going to add MSC to your name. It will give you a second chance to win. Thanks for sharing with us this week at the Mod Squad Challenge.
