Shaped Christmas card

Hello my crafty friends! How are you doing? I'm enjoying my time off. On Saturday me and my sweetie went to the capital - they turned on the Christmas lights and opened the "Christmas town" the day before and we were curious what it was like. While we were there we also did some Christmas shopping and I met with my friend for a coffee and chat, while my sweetie went to the book fair. I was pretty tired at the end of the day, but I had a wonderful time. I'm all ready for the most magical time of the year. :)

We have a new challenge for you at Crafty ribbons blog and this week we want to see your Christmas themed shaped cards. This was quite a challenge for me, as I don't have any dies big enough to just cut out the base for my card, so I had to experiment. I have to admit I am quite happy with the result. It turned out better than I expected.

Again I chose the non-traditional colours. I just love purple and blue in combination with gold and/or silver for Christmas. I only used scraps of paper on this card. Image is from Mo Manning and I coloured it with Promarkers, Faber Castell pencils and Giotto pencils. On the white parts of hat and dress I used liqued applique for the fluffy look.

From Crafty ribbons store I used H/C saddle stitch tan Christmas ribbon, gold stars Christmas ribbon and volcan viscose lace - beige.

I hope many of you will participate in this challenge. I can't wait to see what you'll make. :)

Have a wonderful day! xx
