Christmas Lilies

Hi there 🙂  It’s been quite a while since I posted a Christmas project, but since the new challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group has Christmas as a theme, I had to put my Scrooge-i-ness aside, lol.  Seeing as how it’s November, this is just the kick that I needed!  I used the beautiful Lily In Christmas, from the Etsy store, for my card.  I colored her up with Copics, then cut her out with a pretty oval die.

I had some very definite ideas for this card, that all flew out the window, once I began!! It all started to evolve when I embossed the background and inked the edges with some Distress Ink.  The logical next step was to ink the edges of the image cut out…..  I played around with some embellishments, before deciding to stick with the white/inked edge look. I die cut some holly with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, and used a banner die to cut the sentiment out.  I love the delicate look that the embossing/inking and die cuts give this card!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
