Rachel Ann Miller Christmas Card


Hi Everyone!! Just a short post today! Did you all start your Christmas shopping already? I did a bit of shopping yesterday so it was nice to get a few Christms gifts out of the way. Gosh, there's only 15 days before Christmas. I can't believe it!! It's crazy how quickly time has gone by.

Anyway. . .on to my card. This card initially wasn't created with a "Christmas" card in mind and it's not even a Christmas image but I noticed when I looked at the colors. . .I thought "hey, it has Christmas colors". Well, that's how this card ended up to be a Christmas card.

This image is a Rachel Ann Miller design that you can find at Jen's online store "Little C's Stamps n' Things". The Rachel Ann Miller designs are so cute and fun to color. Stop by Little C's by clicking on the banner above.




I colored the image using my Copic markers. . .again. I also rubbed a little bit of SU pastels to the background to give it some color. I added a bit of SU Crystal Effects as well as some Stickle glitter.

I used my Fiskar mini scallop scissors to create the scallops around the image and Martha Stewart border punch for the bigger scallop design on my card. That's about it.






Card Details:
Stamps: Rachel Ann Miller, SU Best Yet
Paper: DCWV Designer paper, Burgundy (unknown), SU Green Galore (I think)
Ink: Copic Markers, SU Pastel
Accessories: American Craft Element Ribbon, Fiskar small scallops scissors, Martha Stewart border punch, SU Key Tag Punch, SU Crystal Effects, Stickles Glitter
