52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme

For our current challenge, the Design Team decided on a musical theme. For my card, I automatically thought of Christmas Carols. I started with card stock with a collage of song sheets. I added a little distress ink – Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Next I found this adorable stamp by Heather Ellis. Heather designs for MFT, releasing a new Pure Innocence stamp every month,  but this stamp is now retired. Good news though – you can however still get it in a digi stamp format at Heather’s Etsy site at https://www.etsy.com/shop/digistampcharacters . I coloured the little Caroler using my Copics markers, fussy cut him out, then layered him on the card base on top of a small stitched circle (MFT die) . The die cut sentiment is from Impression Obsession.

    That is a great background and I particularly like the glossy sentiment. I can almost hear the little caroler.

    That’s a gorgeous background paper, and perfect for this challenge! The caroler is very cute, and adds focus without detracting from the paper – a lovely balance.
