A Blue and Brown Christmas ....


Christmas is just around the corner...which means, at least for crafters,  card-making at its speediest :)

For my Christmas card, I decided to go in the exact opposite direction from my previous one, focusing on this kind of vintage - shabby look. Which also meant choosing the colors blue and brown.


 So there it is, Tilda with a gift - looking as cute as ever. The card uses the Majestic Elements Nestabilities Radiant Rectangles Die for its shape and layering. The blue DP is from DCWV. The corner embellishment is a Memory Box die.

I had this image colored and cut, ready to be used for a really long time. So not really sure if I used only markers or a combination of markers and colored pencils here.

The inside of the card is similarly lined and heavily distressed. The deer are from the Memory Box die cut and the sentiment is Justrite.
