Christmas at Card Crafter's Circle!

Most people have finished with Christmas cards by December 23.... but there is always room for one more, right? Or perhaps a head start for... dare I say it... Christmas 2012?  This week at Card Crafter's Circle, since we're all in Christmas mode, our challenge is themed Christmas!  We're sponsored by Dearie Dolls, and our challenge winner will receive their choice of 3 Dearie Doll images!

We had a  ball creating with a selection of Christmas images! I couldn't resist this image... in poured fond memories of my 1994 Christmas in Canada, when I saw my first singing Christmas Tree ...

Ingredients: Green, Red Cardstock; Deco Papers, and matching die-cut sentiment; Stardust Glitter Pens; Promarkers; Red Rhinestones; White Lace...

I created an easel from a 6 inch square cardbase.  I trimmed and matted decorative paper to fit, and fixed it to the inside of the card.  I treated the die cut sentiment with lace, and fixed it in the centre.  Along the fold on the card front, I added a run of lace

After colouring the image with Markers and Glitter pens, I double matted it, and fixed it to the front of the card. I finished off with a few rhinestones to the image layer, and the sentiment layer.

I do hope you'll find time to share a Christmas creation with us this week at Card Crafter's Circle! Thanks for peepin'!
