Tree-mendous Christmas

We have a theme of Red and Green at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

Don’t forget to check my sidebar for this months specials over at the store.

For my card I’ve used the cute Santa Baby & Tree from Digi Doodle Shop.He looks like he’s having a little trouble doesn’t he?It’d be no good him asking me – I’d probably be worse at it than him!One of my pet hates.But once the whole thing’s decorated and everything’s twinkling away I’m a very happy bunny indeed!He’s printed onto kraft and coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve used flicky strokes to create some texture to the tree and didn’t think it’d turned out too bad for a first attempt.The trims on his clothing and the snow have been coloured with a Sakura White Gel pen.I also added highlights to his cheeks and the light bulbs before adding Glossy Accents to them.The papers are Basic Grey Jovial and the cardstock is Kars Christmas Collection and kraft from my stash.The topper has been cut from Standard and Classic Scallop Circle Nestabilities.The border has been punched with a Martha Stewart  Aspen Edger.The ticket is a freebie from The Beary Scrap and has also been coloured with Copics and Glossy Accents on the berries.Kars Christmas Collection Ribbon and some threaded buttons have been added to complete the card.
