Two posts today for the Catch the Bug Holiday chaos! I have been crafting away all week after work. It seems that my boyfriend is missing me. He made the comment that he hasn't seen me all week. Do I really need to explain that it's Christmas time and I have soooo much to do?! Silly men! Anyway back to my card! Tuesday's title was Cozy up by the fire. I chose this recipe to work with featuring Tuesdays cute new digi release. Cocoa & Holiday Music - Use the Color Chocolate & Something Silver
The card layout was inspired by a sketch at Passion for Promarkers. I colored the image with my promarkers. I colored her dress with my new metallic silver promarker. The papers were all from my stash. I added some faux stitching around the image. I saw another card maker using a faux stitch stamp. I really need to find me a few of those. My shaky hands makes it very hard to do on my own! I added some new buttons that I just got from Oriental Trading. The sentiment is a tag die and stamp set from My Creative Time. A dear friend sent me some of these cute handmade silver bows that went perfectly with the theme I chose to work with!
I really have been having so much fun with the Chaos themes. It's helping me get more of my Christmas cards made instead of watching tv!
