Christmas Eve at Shelly's Images

Whooo Hooo! Time for another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images. This week, the featured stamp is called, Christmas Eve. And since it is the featured stamp this week, this awesome image is on sale in the Shelly's Images store, for today only! I love this little boy and girl, they are such cuties! It reminds me when I was a little girl, How I'd sneak downstairs in the middle of the night, trying to catch Santa bringing the gifts!

Ohhhh and while I have you here, I wanted to mention a fun event we are having at Shelly's Images! We're having a big 12 Days of Christmas event, and we're inviting all of you to join us! Lots of fun and games, and even a virtual Christmas dinner! I'm looking forward to seeing you all at the big event!

And now, back to today's project:

For my card, I decided to try making a shaped card, for the front panel. I printed the image larger than usual, to show the detail, and colored it with Promarkers. I've used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the light bulbs on the Christmas garland. I added the spotted DP to the front panel, then covered the inside of the card with a second DP. Next, I attached the image, and cut away part of the front panel around the image, to give that die cut effect to the front panel, allowing you to see part of the Inside of the card. I really liked how this turned out as a shaped card, so I decided not to add a lot of elements to the card, to take away from the look. The final touch is the silver and white ribbon, from my stash. My card fits the sketch at Create 4 Fun.
