My second and third Christmas card for the season

Hi to all, and best wishes for the upcoming Christmas season.

Today I'm presenting my second/third card for the 2016 Christmas season. This card is for the 4th Challenge for Angie's Digital Stamps Blog. The theme for this is "Anything Goes with an optional twist of Christmas".
The reason I've called this my second/third Christmas card of the season is that I made one (that disappeared into the dark recesses of our garage overnight, after being packed up by my ever helpful, but lovely husband.) Consequently I had to repeat it so it could be posted for Angie. I've also had to photograph everything on my phone as my camera has also been packed up. The reason for all of this packing up will be explained in a later post. 
This card uses a digistamp by Angie called "Little Lila with a Candy Cane" and was coloured using Copic markers. The silver edging around the oval image is a doily die cut called Bongani Doily from the Wild & Free Collection by Couture Creations. After it was die cut from silver foiled cardstock I quartered it and then arranged it around the edges of the oval shape. (I think perhaps a black or really dark green cardstock would have been better and stand out more.)

The sentiment was die cut from red foiled cardstock using some Decorative Dies from Kaisercraft's Christmas Words pack. Some Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen and Glossy Accents completed the card.

Pop on over to Angie's Digital Stamps Blog and see what everyone has been up to. Maybe you could join in for a chance to win digital stamps from Angie herself.  :)

Bye for now.




  1. haha you are so funny, you'll find that other card when you least expect it lol. What a cute Chrissy card!

    1. Thanks Therese. It's a cutie of an image and fun to colour. Do you like my background. Things are really tragic when you have to photograph your cards while they're sitting on the recycling bin outside! LOL!!!


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
