Today is a special post at the Joy Clair blog ... it's all about Christmas and we are all showcasing newer Christmas products from Joy Clair. For my card I used Penguin Tropical Christmas and Christmas Lights Background.
I started by stamping the lights on one layer and my tree with some lights on it on my main panel. I then stamped the palms and coconuts on a scrap piece before coloring them copics..
I then colored the tree on my main panel and used a pen to darken my light strings. Then stamped the penguin and his shorts. I did color the lights red although I don't show it in this picture. Once everything was colored I then fussy cut all the palms and coconuts from the scrap.
After I stamped my sentiment I began layering all the palm on my tree. I used liquid glue at the base and foam tape towards the top to create some dimension on the tree. For the coconuts I glued the first on flat while popping the last two on with foam tape.
After I adhered the light background to the cardbase I used some stickles to add some sparkle, once they were dry I added the rest of my layers. I didn't feel the background lights gave it enough Christmas Sparkle so added some red stickles to the lights on the front of my card and called it done!
