Tired little Charlie....

Hi it's Susan here, with, yes, another Christmas card!!!!

I used a great sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches.

My backing papers are from Nitwits, including the cute little presents in the bottom left corner. All the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles.

The snowflakes have been made using punches, the large one has had stickles brushed all over the surface, little gems have been put into the centres.

This cute little digi image is from the Daisy Doodles Store and is called Charlie. I coloured it in using Pro-markers and then gently inked the background before distressing the edges and glittering. The little baubles on the trees have been glittered and Charlies nose and eyes have had some glossy accents put on them.

My sentiment has been made on the computer, all edges of the tab have been distressed and glittered.

These are the little presents from Nitwits, after cutting them out I gently embossed around the edges of the boxes and ribbons.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan

  15. Hi Mam. Wow Charlie is fab, as usual you have coloured him in so wonderful. I adore the presents in the corner and your attention to detail is amazing, the embossing really makes them look 3D and pop off the card. I love the green backing papers you've used behind all your main design, it really brings the design further out making it look so bold and beautiful.
