25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 20 "Christmas Carolers"

Hi Everyone!

Today's card is a long card measuring 6 x 3 1/2. When I made this card, I knew immediately that I was going to give it a very special teacher friend of mine. I just thought it was the perfect card for her! The scene of happy Christmas carolers is a digital image from a source that I cannot remember at the moment; and I am so sorry for that. I will try to go back later and see if I can scroll through my history and match it up. For now, just know that I am grateful to have found it.


I printed the image from my computer on to some Neenah Solar White card stock and then also onto some regular computer paper for the mask. I colored the image in with various copic markers and then covered it with the mask before sponging the background with distress inks. I used the same inks to create the background of the card base. The sentiment is from Holiday Filigree by Inkadinkado. 
This card took a bit of time to make; but I was so pleased with the result! I hope you like it as well.
Here are the two cards, side by side for you to see. Have a great day; and I'll see you again tomorrow for Day 21!
