The letter "U" is the prompt for today over at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas cards and it's not an easy one! I decided on one of the suggestions given to us by Beccy ("Under the Tree") and went looking for a Beccy's image I could reasonably put Under a tree.
I tied the image coloring with the colors in
the My Favorite Things challenge.
The tree is one of Beccy's Images and I colored the scene with ProMarkers, adding snow to the tree with white gel pen. The presents were also colored with ProMarkers but they came from another of Beccy's sets, the one I used for my "Reindeer in Training" card a few days ago. I printed it twice, reversing the image once, and making sure that the image was printed small enough that the gifts would fit Under the tree. That's one of the great things about using digis - you can adjust the size to fit your needs!
I cut the reindeer away from both images, leaving only the stack of presents. then cut off the sled on one of them, doing fussy cutting on each one. That was a dedicated effort because those piles of packages are less than a square inch in size. Once the presents were adhered, I cut the entire image piece with a Spellbinders die and backed it with CS.
The stitched ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the snowflake is covered in glitter.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I'm spending creative time doing things for and with family and having the time of my life! Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
