July Project of the Month – Christmas Cards!

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?).
