Even the Naughty deserve something Nice!


It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘X is for Xtra Special’.

Our sponsor for this challenge is KennyK.

I decided to create a Christmas card using Mrs Claus.


I’ve kept my card CAS as I wanted the image to stand out long with the pretty paper. I also knew exactly who I’d give this too and Christmas and CAS is more them.

I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock, coloured with Copic Markers and then cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.

The colours I’ve used are as follows: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair – E49, E57, E55, E53, E51; Clothes & Hat - R29, R27, R24, R22; Sack, Belt, Garter & Boots - C10, C8, C6, C4; Holly - YG67, YG63; Bells - YR24, YR23, YR21.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


Stamps: Mrs Claus (Kenny K), Tags ‘Til Christmas (Stampin’ Up MDS)
Card: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White(Stampin’ Up), Cryogen White cardstock, DSP – Silver & Gold Collection (Bo Bunny)
Ink & Markers: Copic Markers
Accessories: Dazzling Details (Stampin’ Up).

If you haven’t already stopped by ABC Challenges and checked out what the rest of the DT have created then please do so now.
