Together at Christmas

Happy Sunday friends, I have another card to show you using one of the new stamps to be released on July 25th at Lili of the Valley. This one is called 'Together at Christmas' and will be available for purchase on the aforementioned dated. (I NEVER thought I would have the opportunity to use that word, ROFL!) 

This is probably my most FAVORITE stamp from this release, they are all just absolutely gorgeous, but this one just tugs at my heartstrings. I've colored the darlings with my Copics, and used some colored pencils as well to add darker shading. I used a Viva Pearl Pen to add the berries to the holly above the mantle. 


The papers are from a Kaisercraft paper pad, very traditional and old fashioned, just the way I like them. I used some gold mirror cardstock that I found at Marco's paper a while back to finish off that old fashioned look.


The sentiment is from a Waltzingmouse stamps set, I love her use of traditional and vintage combinations of fonts so it worked perfectly for this style of card. I just embossed it in gold and fussy cut it out. 
A pretty gingham taffeta bow finishes the card off.


Hope you like it, thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!

  4. I've just found your blog and have become a follower. This is stunningly beautiful, I love the image and what you've created with it. I am a bit of a LOTV addict (have 15 on the way from the new release) and this was the card that sold this image to me. Love it.
