A Curious Christmas

How can anyone look at Curious George and not smile?? My 26 year old kid looooves George, so what else would I put on their Christmas card??  The only problem was, was finding an image!! I searched high and low, and finally found a kid’s coloring page on a free site that fit the bill to perfection 🙂  I shrunk it way down to card size and colored it up with my SN and Copic markers.  I partially fussy cut, partially die cut the image out, and framed it with a mirror card stitched die cut frame.  I went through my scrap bin and scrounged up some bright, festive scraps to arrange the image on.  The text background paper really added to the fun feel of the card.  I added some silver rivets to the corner to compliment the frame, then got it in the mail, special delivery, with love, to my kid, who, sadly, wasn’t able to spend Christmas with me.

Pimpin’ Rudolf

I have loved this image “Rudolf’s Selfie“, from Sheepski Designs, since I first saw it.  He just looks so full of himself, that it makes me smile 🙂  I decided to use him to make a card for the artist that created him, Andrea, for Christmas this year.  Because it was being mailed overseas, I wanted to keep it flat to keep postage down, so I went with a CAS design.  I colored him up with my SN and Copic markers, then foiled his tooth with gold to give him a real “street” look.  I added the Ho Ho Ho sentiment with some gold stickers I had….it was nice to use up some of those spare letters from various sets, because I just can’t throw random stickers out (just in case, ya know!).  A few gold and red sequins for a bit more sparkle, and the card was ready to be sent off 🙂
