Clover wishes you a Merry Christmas

Join us every Wednesday for a Challenge at La-La Land Crafts Blog. This week's challenge is PINK. Please click here to participate and to see the cards from our super talented design team!!

My card today is not for this week's challenge, it is not pink ;-) . Red and Blue is my favorite color combo for Christmas cards. I just finished this card and talk about it being a last minute thing!! This card is for my class at Cranberry Hill TONIGHT!! If you would like to see the other two cards from this class please click here and here.

This card measures 6" x 6".

Candy Cane Clover (chicken) stamp is from La-La Land Crafts, you can buy it here. Fireplace stamp is from Magnolia, you can buy yours at Cranberry Hill Mercantile online store, here is the link. Sentiment is from JustRite Christmas stamp set.

I made this card into somewhat like a shadowbox card. Blue background was embossed with Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder, cut out the circle in the middle with Nestabilites and made the scalloped frame to go around the opening. The blue layer is raised on the card with the fireplace showing in the opening. Fireplace was colored with Copic Markers and I also airbrushed around the fireplace.

Clover was stamped twice and colored with Copic Markers. Her wings and the Candy Cane are layered for a 3D effect, you might be able to see it when you enlarge the last photo (just click on it).

Gold Brads in the corners. Ribbon, button and gold twine adorn the top of the cirle. Stickles on the garland, the fire and the Candy Cane.

Irina, I love the cute little scene you created! Embossed background looks great here! Love the brads you added in the corners! And dimension gives a very magical feel to the card!
