Twas the Night Before Christmas

I am so glad you stopped by!    
Today I am sharing a Christmas card I created using Heartfelt Creations; Winter's Eve Collection.   I love having an opportunity to create a few Christmas cards early and this collection is perfect.   I can just feel the warmth of the fireplace and the now biting my nose when I step outside!  Talk about fun memories!

The holly berries and and focal image  were stamped with Memento Desert Sand Ink. The berries/leaves and focal image were colored with Copic alcohol ink.  I created my own wallpaper you can see through the window pane.   The color combo was - (Berries, tree trim and rug - R20, R22, R24, R27 R56, Leaves - Leaves and tree - G40, G43, G44, Skin Tones E00, E11, E24, Hair - C3, C4, C5, C7, Dress - B0000, B00, B21,  Christmas Balls - B00, B21, B24, B27,  Star - Y11, YR20, YR23, YR56,  Wall paper - E40, E42, B00).

The window and window shutters were cut from theWindow Fame set.   Die cut the window frame  3 times and adhere  for extra strength.  Clear cardstock was was cut and adhered on the underside of the window frame.

Adhere the flowers and  holly bush with a glue gun.   Darice foam strips were adhered between the focal image and the window frame.  The frame was then adhered to the card with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
