For my Christmas card today, I went with more of a masculine theme. I love this old truck image and I thought it would look good in a rusty blue color. After coloring it with Copics, I stamped and fussy cut an extra wreath to add on top. The greeting was stamped underneath and I added some dimensional sparkly snow on the ground and stickles on the wreath.
The two patterns of designer paper are actually one double sided piece I die cut using a curved border then flipped one side over. The cobalt blue layer was embossed using a snowflake frame and I used a white chalk marker to go over the raised areas. The snowflake was stamped with the blue ink and fussy cut. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
