Anita Jeram Christmas Presents Christmas card

Hello everyone and welcome to the next challenge over at ATSM.




This time we have our Christmas Challenge and I came up with this card. As we often don't have snow in my neck of the woods until after Christmas, I decided to put this cute dog in the garden without a snowflake in sight!


I used my new Colorado Craft Company Christmas Presents stamp set from Anita Jeram. I stamped the dog and presents and then made a mask before inking in the sky and using Copic pens for the grass. After the mask was removed, I coloured the dog and presents with Copics too, and added some glossy accents to his nose. To frame the image, I cut a stitched oval to create an aperture and raised this on fun foam to create some depth. The sentiment is from the same set and I added a few tiny stars from a Clearly Besotted set.



 My talented Teamies have some great inspiration for you over on the ATSM blog, and I look forward to seeing your festive contributions this month.

I'd like to play along at





Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs

What a wonderfully fun, versatile card. I have a few people in my life who are die-hard Christmas fans and I feel like a card such as this would be a great way to help them countdown the months until their favourite day returns well in advance of December itself.
