It's time for a new challenge at Stamping with the Dragon and here are the details:


Theme: Anything goes - Christmas

Prize : $10 gift certificate


Everyone on the design team was given Patches to play with and let me tell you, every one of us came up with something different.  You'll definitely want to check them all out.

All the papers that I used to create my card are from Echo Park, but not all are from the same collection.  After printing and coloring Patches with Copic markers and glossy accents on the ornament, I fussy cut him out so I could adhere him on my Spellbinder's ornament.   I also used just a touch of Smooch pearlized ink (gold lame) for the ornament top.   As some of you know, I don't like to throw anything out.  The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is a perfect example.  It's actually the name of the paper collection on the tag that everyone cuts off at the bottom of each sheet.  It was the perfect size, so I cut it out and pop dotted it onto my ornament.  I used a brad to attach the ornament to my velvet ribbon and let it hang naturally (so it can swing just like a real ornament.  At least it won't break if it hits the ground.).  For the inside of the card, I cut out a smaller Spellbinder's ornament to add a written note.

Now it's your turn to get busy and upload your Christmas creation to the Stamping with the Dragon challenge blog.  What better way to get those Christmas cards ready before the last minute.

Copics used: YG67   E07, E08, E09    R24, R27, R29
