Not Too Early…..

CCM Sept23 blk

To start those Christmas Cards!

This is a peek at some new sets coming from Our Daily Bread designs! Holiday Ornaments and Christmas Door.

I started by stamping then masking the door to do some faux wood grain for the background. I drug Ranger Distress inks Old Paper, Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo over my cs then scored the “planks” on my Scor-Buddy.

Christmas Door itself is colored with Copics, Sakura white gel pen, metallic silver and fine point Sharpie markers. I took a gazillion, if not more, pics and just couldn’t get the colors to ring true. It looks a lot better IRL! LOL

Here’s the inside….

Holiday Ornaments colored with Copics, white and metallic gel pens. Spellbinders Holiday Tags and 2011 Heirloom Ornaments hang freely in this Accordion Card from Creative Cuts and More. The nice thing about CC&M is everything comes pre-cut and scored, ready to embellish to your liking!
The Heirloom Ornament is cut from Mirror Paper from ODBD. The Accordion Insert is embossed with Holiday Ribbons… running it through my Grand Calibur two separate times to get the entire piece. Silver embroidery floss attached at the back of the fold allows the ornaments to dangle freely.
