It’s Christmas in July! What better way to beat the Florida summer heat than by making some Christmas Cards. So far this year most of my cards involve Copic coloring because I am trying to learn and I thought it was a good way to practice. I really just did these in solid colors so there was no shading involved except for the shadows (N2 and N0). And in the case of the vases I only colored the flowers and the shelf and then did the shadows so it wasn’t particularly challenging but was fun and relaxing.
I stamped and colored these cards with stamps from Stampin’ Up (Sunny Seasons Greetings and Varied Vases):
These are a couple of easy cards without the Copic coloring that I did before my Copic obsession set in.
The first one (deck the halls) I did by using the pennants (upside down) and the presents from Concord & 9th Birthday Stacks. The set made it super easy to color the trees and the presents with the included solids. I added the sentiment and the stars from other stamp sets and used a Copic marker for the trunks. Easy and fun card.
Still more to come but I have a pretty good start so hopefully December won’t be too manic this year (who am I kidding, right?).
