A Sassy Holiday...

Oh my!  Not my typical Holiday card... but I did have fun coloring and layering her to be a 3-D image.  And, I have an 80+ year old cousin who will get a kick out of her... so done and done!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources 
will be found below under “Supplies”.]
Image was printed three times, colored with Copics, fussy cut, sculpted and then layered on foam tape.  Four layers of scrap papers from Basic Grey were layered as a background and the focal image layered on top.   You can see the depth a little better in this angled shot on the right.  The sentiment was stamped and slipped in under one of the layers and three pearl clusters [the last ones ever!] were added as bling.


This card should be eligible for the following 
Pile it On #48 – P is for... [pretty, paper, pale, pearls]
Paper Crafting Journey – It's Christmas Time
OSAAT #193 – Seeing Red
LEJ Designs #83 – Festive Fun
Crafty Sentiments –Christmas
Quirky Crafts #25 – Christmas + a “treasure” [last three pearl clusters saved for the perfect card...sigh.]
Parade Your Crafts #10 - Christmas Crafts


IMAGES:  The focal image is from Sassy Studio Designs; "Ho" sentiment is by Gail Green from Impression Obsessions; inside "Merry Christmas' is from Country Impressions.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from Basic Grey's "Nordic Holiday" collection.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Pearl clusters from stash
INKS: the images were printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics.

May you color with abandon, create wildly and always make what amuses you!
