Holly Hobbie Easel Card

Over at City Crafter Challenge this week's challenge is a Christmas Easel Card.  I had a thought in mind when I saw the challenge but today when I picked up my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine I saw the free stamps and papers were Holly Hobbie.  Do you remember when she was all the rage?  I do!  So I just had to make a card with it.

I stamped Holly onto white card and coloured with Copics.  I then cut her out with a Spellbinders die.  I made the poinsettia with Spellbinder die which I embossed with an M-bossibilty folder.  I painted the leaves with Iridescence medium.  I finished them off with some punched leaves.

I really pleased how it turned out.

I'm watching "Mrs Brown's Boys" while typing this and laughing so much.  What a funny programme.  This episode is the one where Maria goes into labour.  Very humorous. 

Nearly the weekend, and I'm going to Lei's house to stamp with the girls.... Will be a fun day then off to hubby's Christmas function.

See you soon

You have melted my heart with this adorable card, Dawn! I am a huge Holly Hobbie fan from the 1960's! I didn't even know that there were stamps of her. Gotta get some. You have done her proud with this coloring, too. And that easel style looks like such fun. Great job - you made my day!
