Believe in the Magic!

Happy Monday from Jan's Digital Stamp Design Team as we bring you our mid month inspirational cards today.

I've selected part of the images from the 'Believe' package as we continue to have Christmas in July...even though our temperatures are near 100 here in SC!

Isn't there something about Buffalo check that just makes you think of Christmas? It certainly does for me.

So as you can see I pulled the Santa boots from the package and then layered the 'Believe' close to the top cuff.

I used my Copic markers for coloring and believe me, black boots are not an easy image to color in my opinion. 

Next I selected the Gina Marie Designs Drop Pendant die to get the stitched design.  I made the card base using black cardstock and cut it 4 1/4" x 6".  Then I added the Buffalo check mat which is cut 1/4" smaller than the card base. 

 I secured the colored image slightly lower than the center of the card, both to match the pattern better and also the image is weighted, so they just appear better to the eye located a little lower. To add a little more pop to the image, I used a clear glaze pen and covered the 'gold' buckles and bells on the boots. Lastly I adhered the three tiny black enamel dots in the top left corner. 

 I hope you will visit Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge Blog and see all the Design Team cards. We'd love for you to enter your cards there too.
