Delicious Doodles - #8 - Extravagant Christmas


Delicious Doodles has a great challenge going - it's over-the-top, embellished to the hilt, extravagant Christmas time! I had such fun decorating these great images from Teri of these Christmas ornaments... Went on glitter and gem overload!!! LOL The base of the card is red glitter paper, with a Cricuit cut oval laid on top of some fun gold net ribbon. I colored the baubles with ... of course ... my Copics, sprayed them with some homemade glimmer mist, then adnorned them with more glitter and rhinestones. Felt Christmas bows top them for the perfect finishing touch. My sentiment is a Cloud 9 stamp with handwritten wishes. The corners are another Cricut cut with a glitter pen highlight and another gem. To add the final touch, I made my own stick pins and stuck them in for good measure. All in all, a pretty heavily adorned Christmas card that will probably need to be hand-delivered instead of mailed...hehe!


So, how much can you put on a Christmas card? Take the challenge... I bet you can do a great job!


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
