Salutations crafty traveller. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall today. This morning, the Lady Commander of Copics and Guardian of Glitter decided to set up the Christmas tree in our massive dining hall. Despite my complaints that it may be a tad too early for Winter Festival decorations, they were adamant to get the thing up. A few of the house gnomes assisted them in their Christmasy endeavour, also very excited for the fast approaching Winter Festival. Speck, one of the smaller house gnomes hastily made a sign and just danced around the room, cheering everyone else on.
This Christmas card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines November challenge which is happening right now! Make a project using a Just Some Lines image and three different embellishments for your chance to win!
I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines “Em Thank You Sign” image using Prismacolor pencils and paper piecing her dress. I stamped her sign using the Echo Park “Holly Jolly Christmas” set. I then die cut the image using the Lawn Fawn “Tag You’re It” die set, trying that “off the edge” technique with the sign. The little holly in the corner I stamped from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set, using Distress Markers as ink so I could get the two different colours. I cut the Christmas Tree out using the Art Philosophy cartridge and added some embellishments for decorations.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from The Greeting Farm’s “Holiday Blessings” set, paper piecing the trees with some scraps that were left over from the front’s background paper.
The envelope I stamped with trees using the Hero Arts “Christmas Reindeer” set.
This card will skip on into the following challenges:
Well...even though it’s another moon’s turn before the Winter Festival, we now have the tree erected in the Guild Hall. I suppose it will be one less thing to do in our growing list of preparations.
