Merry Christmas!!!





Merry Christmas everyone!!! What a wonderful day!!! I am up early to get the turkey in the oven. I just had to make one more Christmas card ...my last one for this year!!

I used the adorable Rubbernecker image, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with copics. Dazzling Diamonds was added to the stocking and Liquid Pearls with a coating of Dazzling Diamonds was added to the kitty's hat. I added some doodling to the edges of the image and used the out of the box technique to cut out the image .....cut out part of the hat and the pine bough along the edge. Sewing was done around the background layer on the K&Co. dp and pearls were added to the rounded corners. The Rubbernecker sentiment was stamped with Memento Black, cut out with Nesties, doodling was done around the edge, layered onto Cameo Coral cs, and attached with dimensionals.




The close up shows how the hat and pine bough were cut out and how the liquid pearls gave the hat a furry look. Buttons were attached over the stamped buttons on the image. Papertrey Ink Ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have the very best Christmas evah!!!
