Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Christmas Cards

Our challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenge this fortnight is to make a Christmas Card. Nice and easy and perfect if you need a bit of a push to start those Christmas cards! I used the cute Winter Buddies image for my card. The papers are from MME glitter Christmas stack distressed with vintage photo distress ink.

I coloured the image with copics and added glossy accents to the lights. They look great in real life but I couldn't get the glossy accents to show on my photo without having my leaded windows shadowing onto the picture LOL.

I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts sprayed with glimmer mist. The white leaves are Whiff of Joy's leaves die, inked with vintage photo distress ink and the holly leaves were punched with another Whiff of Joy die from Magnolia music paper. I added a couple of snowflake charms and pins from my stash too.

The snowflake is made of die cuts from Whiff of Joy's new snowflakes die and I've layered it with a plastic snowflake and a pearl button.

Hope you like it and you can join us this week at Whiff of Joy challenge. The rest of the team have created some gorgeous Christmas cards for your inspiration too, pop over to the blog and check them out! Thanks for looking! x
