May 2019 Challenge Christmas cards Facebook Group – Gift of Christmas

Hello Everyone and welcome back to my blog!

Today I am sharing with you my second Design Team inspiration card that I created for the May 2019 challenge over at the Christmas cards Facebook group and the theme this month is “Anything goes”

For my card today I have used one of the images of our Sponsor this month called Gift of Christmas


  • I printed the image on mixed media paper and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes and a waterbrush. I also added some highlights with a white Posca pen.

  • For some interest on the background I used the Tim Holtz stencil “Lattice work” and sponged distress ink in Salty Ocean.

  • I then die cut the image with a Tim Holtz and Sizzix “Stitched sqare” die.

  • On a blue card base I stamped a sentiment from the Dare 2B Artzy stamp set called “Poinsettia tangle”  in Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger white embossing powder.

  • I used distress ink in Salty ocean around the front of the card and I adhered the image.

  • I used Ranger Stickles in Diamond on the wings, the Glory and the bow of the rabbit.

  • To finish off the card I added Nuvo drops in White blizzard and Carnation pink.DTOlgaFink-Polkadoodles-May2019-4
