Charlotte's Christmas Tree

Hello everyone and TGIF! :) I'm so excited that the week is almost over. Tomorrow I have some friends coming over and we're going to stamp the day away :) I'm also taking a mini vacation from work (not really going anywhere, but I'm in desperate need of a break :) ) so I will be getting a five day weekend. Yay! :)

For my card today, I had to ink up my new Charlotte stamp from Whiff of Joy. I inked the stamp up with Memento black ink and stamped it twice onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored the first image with my copics. I then colored just Charlotte from the second image with copics, cut her out, and attached her to the first image with dimensionals to pop her out. I added Gold Stickles to the star, red stickles to the garland, and Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles to the ornaments. I also used my Sakura glitter pen to put some glitter on the holly in Charlotte's hair. I mounted the image onto SU's Rose Red cardstock.

Next, I created my card base out of SU's Always Artichoke (my card base measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2). I layered Rose Red on top of that. My designer paper is from DCWV's Christmas stack. For some finishing touches, I added ribbon (from Michael's dollar bin), Primas, and a MS pearl.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Hugs, Christine :)
