Christmas Card in Black,White & Red

I used Holly’s Stocking from The Digi Garden for my latest Christmas creation. Christmas is coming so fast I only hope to get as many cards made over the next few weeks to be really ready, as a card maker it’s embarrassing  to give out store bought cards. I bought this swirly Winterland  tree die at the last craft fair and it was so exciting to finally use it. On Christmas day in our house we dress up in Santa Hats even though we live in a tropical climate but determined to celebrate the occasion, this image reminded me of our family.  I added some flower soft to her hat to give it a fluffy look and Santa Stocking and a smile to Holly with my Copic Multi Liner because she is definitely thinking about what Santa is going to bring! I also added baby pearl bling as earrings!! Holly's Stocking 001

I’d love you to come and Join our Challenge this week at

    Adorably cute card Trish. I'm smiling at the addition of the little lady elf's earrings. That is something my little Claire would have done, too. The "fuzzy" element on the top of the stocking and on her hat are super. Think this card is definitely top notch!

    This is adorable, Trish! Love that snow at the top. I think red, black, white combos are so effective for Christmas.
