For Santa by The Paper Shelter for Little Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #219 on the 3rd of December, 2023

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #219, the 3rd of December 2023 challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my completed card:

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter:
I chose to use For Santa, which I have digitally printed the image on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • snowman - C00, C0, C1, C3, R20, BV0000, White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops
  • orange (nose) - YR12, YR14, YR16
  • red - R22, R24, R27, R59
  • green - G02, G05, G17, G29
  • tree - E71, E74, E87, E89
  • smaller tree - E37, E39
  • purple (baubles) - V06, V09
  • star - Y13, Y15, Y18
  • snow - Y000, C00, C0, C1
  • glass - B000, clear Wink of Stella
  • sign - B000
  • biscuits - E55
  • plate - B14, B16
  • sky - YR20, Y000, V000, V01, V05, V06, V09
  • outline - V09

I have cut out the coloured image with my paper cutter and outlined it, then adhered it to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes and bonus classes.

Here are some photos during the colouring process:
