First Christmas Card of the Year
Check it out! It's only March and I made a Christmas card!
I got to play with some new stamps that I picked up during the after Christmas sales.
The pinecone is from one of Tim Holtz's blueprint sets, and the sentiment is from the set that coordinates with the crazy birds.
I wanted to add a little extra depth/dimension to the pinecone. It's stamped on some brown cardstock, and then I added some Copic shading and also pieced it in layers.
This was a little tricky to piece in terms of depth since the top should be a little further away, and the bottom layers should come out, but there wasn't a definitive layering to the way the image was drawn. You can see from the close up how I achieved it.
We've got Spring Break next week. No major plans, just looking forward to some time to catch up on things (finish my taxes and do that awful trek to and from the attic in which I move the girls up a clothing size).
Have a great weekend, and safe travels to all who are headed somewhere fun!
