Decorated Window

     This is my 4th card in the 30 Days of Holidays challenges at Beccy's Place.  Beccy is using the alphabet for themes this year and today we have the letter "D."  Let's see, I used decorating, die cuts, dimension (3D), and digital stamp.  There may be more that I'm just not seeing.  :-D


I based all of this on the colors found at House of Cards.


     This image is Beccy's "Winter Window" and I colored it with ProMarkers and added white gel pen and glitter gel pen to the snow on the window and tree branch.  The image is cut with a die from Spellbinders, the I cut the light red frame with a Lawn Fawn stitched die.

     The deep red CS, which I used for the background, was embossed with my "Linen" folder (hey, there's another one - dry embossing!)  I printed and hand cut the sentiment.  It seemed to go so well with the candle in the window - a sign of wishing someone home.  The bow is hand sewn with that tiny pearl on it.

     My final touch for decorating was the string of Christmas lights above the window.  Of course, in a salute to reality, one of the lights had to be 'burned out."  lol

     I'll have another post in a very little while but must get this one posted now so that I can go to bed.  It's been a long, long week and I've not had enough sleep, having wakened at 3:00 this morning!  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

  1. I love that little string of Christmas lights NC, what a fabulous embellishment for a Christmas card! I also like the way you've personalised the sentiment... obviously you'll be missing someone this year. The colour scheme is fabulous, I really like seeing non-traditional colours for the holidays. Great job!
    Cheers,
    Beccy

  3. Well look at you taking this image to the next level! I should say, up several levels! FABULOUS coloring, and those "outdoor" Christmas lights remind me of the larger blinking lights we used to put up, too! It is the coloring inside the window I dearly love. Your candle brings to mind Christmases of long ago, spending the night wrapping presents, and preparing for a Christmas breakfast. Wonderful card. hugs, de
