Christmas Stampin All Year Long

Today is challenge day over at CSAYL and this week we're teaming up with Bugaboo Digi Stamps for a group post.  The challenge this week is to create a holiday card or project inspired by this photo.

I used an adorable image called "Ava Christmas - Sitter" for my card.
Isn't she cute?
The inspiration photo was so pretty, but that big red velvet ribbon really caught my eye.  One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is all of the beautiful ribbons and packaging.  So that's what inspired my card.

I started by printing her out twice.
I colored one image with Copics and then covered the other image with red velvet flock.
Here she is in soft fluffy flock. 
(I ended up just using the hat on my card)
And here's Ava all put together.  I popped up her velvet hat with dimensionals and embellished it with a glitter pen.

Every holiday card needs a little sparkle, but I didn't have any red jewels on hand,
so I grabbed a red Copic and made my own.

We've got loads of inspiration today from the CSAYL team and the Bugaboo team.  Be sure to check them out and then leave us a link over at CSAYL to your project.

Ava is so cute. Love the card with the flocked hat and glitter. Great idea to create your own colored rhinestones.
