Who wouldn't want to wake up Christmas morning to a gorgeous Christmas tree with lots of packages underneath? I think just about everyone, no matter your age : ).
This card uses two different digital images from Bonibleaux Designs. The first is O' Christmas Tree and the other is Presents! Both are located under the "Christmas" section. Copics were used to color in all the images. After coloring the presents, I cut them out and adhered them under the tree.
After cutting the tree out with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles (#5, assumes #1 is the smallest), I outlined the edge with Scattered Straw Distress Stickles. The ornaments and the star also have Scattered Straw on them. I used Crystal Stickles to highlight the blue garland going around the tree as well as the center of the star.
This top layered is adhered to patterned paper from Creative Memories (that I had in my stash), which I corner rounded and added pearl accents to each corner. Next, I adhered this layer to my base red cardstock and as a finishing touch, I spritzed Smooch Spritz all over the front.
Since the basic red cardstock looked so plain on the inside of the card, I used my Stampers' Anonymous Merry Christmas stamp and Versamark ink pad and randomly stamped on both panels. Then I stamped the image again with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and highlighted it with a clear glitter pen. I also randomly stamped a present in empty-looking areas (not sure of the manufacturer of this stamp) to fill out the inside.
Copics used (left in the groupings I used them in): YG17, YG67 E74 B12, B14, B16 Y06, Y08, Y13 B02, B04, B05, B18 G14, G17 RV08, RV09, YG00, YG01, YG21 V04, V05, Y19, Y38 R14, R17, B39, B63 E07, E09 FRV1 R59,YR0000 BV01, BV02, BV04, BV17
