Christmas Cactus

Are your Christmas cards all done and mailed? If not, perhaps this card will inspire you to get them finished. I used paper, a sentiment and a pre-colored digi  from the Christmas Cactus set by Doodle Pantry. I lightened the image and it printed a beautiful bright purple-pink-ish color. I added a bit of Copics to the image just to make it a bit more full-color (sometimes when I lighten a digi, they tend to "fade" out a bit; so using my Copic pens fills in the gaps).

I love this flower set. Several colors to choose from or use the black & white line art to color your own.

I carried the sketch to the inside and left plenty of room to write a short note. 

A bit of green organza ribbon and bow and some matching sequins (thank you Betty . . . they went perfect with the colors in this card) complete the card.

If your cards are all done for this year, then why not get started on a few cards for next year? If you're like me, your "Christmas cardmaking supplies" are probably still out {smile}

Stop by the Doodle Pantry store to see all the wonderful Digital Stamp sets (click on any picture below).  If you create a card (or craft item) using any digital image (not just a DP digi), you can enter it in the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #53~click here.

  1. Christmas supplies are definitely still out and everywhere. :P I love the colours of your cactus!

  2. Amazing! I love the purple and green together. Love how you embellished with the ribbon and the sequins. Great idea to carry the outside sketch inside too. This is an amazing card!
