Our hostess this month at Mo's Challenge Blog, Lydia has set our challenge to "Someone Special". We are to make a Christmas card for someone special using traditional Christmas colors; red, green, gold, silver, blue.
Bismarck, isn't he just the cutest? I began by sizing and printing the image onto Cryogen paper with my ink jet printer. Copics used:
Hat - R29, R89, G05, G09
Scarf - R29, R89, G05, gold Spica pen
Bismarck - C0, C1, C4
Bone - E41 and blender pen
Bow - G05, G09
I used Sugar Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge on the hat band and tassel. Spellbinder's Nestabilities Labels 3 die was used to cut out the image but before I removed it, I ran a Copic multiliner around the inner edge to create the fine black border.
If you notice this card has no designer paper. I used another piece of Cryogen white for the embossed Cuttlebug Holly Ribbon panel. The card stock is a wonderful Malmero Perle from Cutcardstock.com; Vermillion red and Emeraude green. They are great true red and green colors with a fabulous sparkle just like the Cryogen. The saying is computer generated. Some ribbon and pearls and I was done. Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
