Ruby’s Christmas Wish

I love making Christmas cards, I really do.  It’s the perfect excuse to go bling crazy!  I also love aqua and red together, so when I found these fab digi papers that I had printed out last year and never gotten round to using, wellll … the card about made itself.

The sweet stamp is Ruby’s Christmas Wish and is new in at Whimsy Stamps this month.  The digi papers are I Dream in Christmas by Crissy Armstrong.

I coloured the stamp with copic markers:
Hair: E29, 25, 50
Skin: E04, 11, 21, 00, 000, R20
Red: R46, 37, 24, 14
Aqua: BG57, 53, B000
Gold: YR27, 24, Y13

The flowers are handmade using watercolour paper and the Lily Flower Die set.  After die cutting the paper I spritzed it with water and twisted it up then set it aside to dry a little.  Before it was totally dry I used a medium sized ball tool and cupped the petals from the back to shape them.  

Oh, and did you spy that sweet little glass bauble?  Too stinking cute.  I got a set off 10 from eBay for under £3.  

I finished off the flowers with some holly leaves and mistletoe from the Christmas Branches die set.  I painted the card with some gold paint before die cutting.  Loving the sparkle!

I finished off with a sentiment stamped and embossed onto red card.  Not done the red before and love the effect.
