Make the Holidays Happier

Kim O’Connell is joining us today as our guest blogger. She combined many different techniques on her card, including sponging the background using Sweet Tooth ink (let it snow), gorgeous Copic coloring, and using glitter to accentuate the mounds of snow created using Circle STAX. Her adorable Christmas card left us grinning ear-to-ear.


The traditional red and green color combination for Christmas cards never goes out of style.


Kim’s coloring of the sweet Pure Innocence character is simply superb! She achieved a truly dimensional look by deeply shading some areas of the image. We love how she created texture on the tree with marker strokes.


We love the little extras on this card, like the festive ribbon treatment, the icicles, and the touches of glitter.
