Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

I have actually found time to make two cards this fortnight! So here is my first card:

Here is the second card:

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I have digitally printed Snow Family and Little Drummer Boy and their sentiments from Twinkle Lane Designs on to X-Press It Blending Card, then I used my Silhouette Cameo to fussy cut out the image. I have used the following Copics on the Snow Family:
  • snowman: 0, C00, C0, C1, C2
  • snowman's nose: YR20, YR14, YR09
  • snowman's buttons: N7, N10, black Wink of Stella
  • holly and berries: YG03, G05, R24, R29, clear Wink of Stella
  • red hat with green band: R22, R24, R29, G02, G05, G09
  • green and white spotted scarf: G02, G05, G09, white gel pen
  • green and red hat: G02, G05, G07, clear Wink of Stella, R29
  • red scarf with stars: R22, R24, R29, clear Wink of Stella
  • red and white hat: R22, R24, R29, 
  • green scarf: G02, G05, G09
  • top hat with red band: C5, C7, C9, R22, R24, R29
  • red and green scarf: R22, R24, R29, G02, G05, G09 
I have used the following Copics on the Little Drummer Boy:
  • crown: Y00, YR31, Y17, E23, R22, R24, R29
  • hair/moustache: E35, E37, E39
  • face: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, B69 (eyes)
  • jacket: YR31, Y17, E23, R22, R24, R29, black Wink of Stella
  • sash: B63, B66, B69, Y08
  • pants: B63, B66, B69
  • boots: C5, C7, C9, black Wink of Stella, E23, Y17
  • drum and drumsticks: B23, B26, B29, Y02, Y06, Y08, R22, R24, R29, C2, E23, blue Wink of Stella

I printed the digital paper that came with Little Drummer Boy and one of the papers from Unique Snowflakes, both from Twinkle Lane Designs, at Officeworks (my printer is good for black and white, but colour is a bit to be desired, unless it is photo paper!)
I have adhered the digital paper, which I outlined with B23 or G07 Copic marker, the sentiment which I outlined with B69 Copic marker and my coloured images to a white square card from Envelope Solutions. I also coloured a few snowflakes and the snow of the Christmas trees with clear Wink of Stella (although it is hard to see in the photos).

I am entering both cards into the following challenges:
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #31 - Anything Christmas Goes
Colour Crazy Challenge Week 24 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge
Lemon Shortbread Challenge #70 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Design - Anything Goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' June 2018 - Anything Christmas Goes

Twinkle Lane Designs was started in 2015 - created by Suzanne Porter BA (Hons) Graduate in Fashion Enterprise.  I have always been creative, I love all types of crafts, sewing, papercraft, drawing. As an avid cardmaker I created Twinkle Lane so I could make unique characters and papers to make wonderful cards.
