Christmas Sweet Treats for Winter Wonderland for the 1st of January, 2021

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Jayne.
Welcome to our first challenge for 2021.

Our theme is:

Christmas Sweet Treats

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.
"Christmas Sweet Treats"
so that means you can showcase anything sweet that we have all eaten over Christmas, including gingerbread, chocolates, marshmallows, pavlova, fruit, the list goes on!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Twinkle Lane Designs:

and the prize on offer for the winner is two images of their choice from the shop

I chose Gingerbread Man for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter. He also came with two sentiments, so I have printed one of them.
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • blue - B14, B16, B18, white gel pen
  • yellow - Y13, Y15, Y17
  • red - R32, R35, R37
  • green - G02, G05, G07
  • marshmallows - RV00, RV02, RV04
  • gingerbread - E13, E15, E17, E19, Twinkle Stickles
  • red buttons - R46, R59
  • hot chocolate - E33, E35, E37
  • tree - YG11, YG06, YG67
  • baubles - R32, R35, R37, G02, G05, G07, Y28
  • background - BV000, BV00, BV02, colourless blender
  • outline - BV13
  • sentiment - black glitter pen, BV0000, BV000, BV00, colourless blender
I then adhered the coloured image and sentiment on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here are some close-ups of the sentiment and colouring:
