As we're still really busy decorating, moving furniture etc etc I have incorporated two challenges into my card. Over at Bah! Humbug! their challenge is to use vellum and at Die Cut Dreams theirs is for Christmas humour.
I don't have many humorous Christmas stamps so decided to use my digistamp "Mistletoe Kisses" from Prairie Fairy as she just makes me giggle every time I look at her. She's coloured in ProMarkers and I have added Diamond Glaze to her glasses, white Flower Soft for her bobble and edges of the jacket, Glamour Dust on the edge of her hat and pearls for the mistletoe berries.
I then used my nesties but as she was larger than the size I wanted to use I placed the nestie over the image and marked where she overlapped the die and then cut that piece out by hand and when I put the die over the image prior to cutting I made sure the handcut piece was over the top of the die so it didn't get cut. I then trimmed this down so I could mount it on gold mirri cut with the same size die which was then mounted on red mirri. The backing paper is from Papermania Classic Christmas. The vellum is from my stash and I'm not sure if you can see but it has white Christmas sentiments printed on it - this was torn and the edge inked in red. The tickets are a digistamp from Cuddly Buddly and were printed out onto cream card and inked. The ribbon and gems are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
