Christmas In July

Good Day My Fellow Crafters, I'm so Glad You Could Stop By!  Today I have made a very simple Christmas card featuring Magnolia Stamps, Copic Markers and Distress Inks.

This little sweetie is Joyful Tilda from the Magnolia 2013 Winter Wonderland collection.  As you've probably already noticed, I love to work with these gorgeous stamps.  Please excuse my dark images as it's been overcast all day.

I kept this card CAS (clean and simple) because, let's face it, making elaborate Christmas cards for every one of my friends and family is just not going to happen.  No offense to anyone.♥  The tag at least adds another element to the card to keep it interesting and unique.

I haven't added any sentiment yet but can do so quite easily by either stamping directly to the tag or onto the white card.  A gift card could always be added to the tag too.

Copic Markers Used:  SKIN: E0000, E000, E00, R20  CLOTHES: E40, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, E81, E84, R56  HAIR: E50, E33, E35, E37

Distress Inks:  Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans

Thank You for coming by to take a peek.  I would love it if you left me a comment.  All of the supplies I've used that were not mentioned above are listed below.  Have a great week!

♥ Laura C.
