There is still time...

ioxmastopiary The holidays are looming, but there is still some time to squeeze in a few more Holiday Projects. 

Right now, Holiday Stamp Kits and selected Holiday stamps, papers and stamp sets are on sale at Paper Garden Projects (while supplies last). 

You can check out all the specials by clicking HERE.  We ship priority mail, so US customers should have their purchases in about 3 days.

For this card, I used the Partridge in a Pear Tree Topiary cling stamp and the new Basic Grey Wassail paper pad

The image is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I added some glitter to the Partridge and the stars with the Copic Spica glitter pen - but the photo does not capture the glitter very well. 

I created the diamond edge with the Diamond elegance Border Punch and added a thin strip of the green paper from the Wassail pad that I pierced using the Tim Holtz Design Ruler.  If you like to paper pierce, this ruler is so great.

xmas-topiary-copicsOh.... in case inquiring minds want to know, there are the Copic colors I used for the card.  I also added a little R-14 to the bow, and I used colorless blender to create highlights on the bow.

I have a sick little one today (off the the doctors for a strep test).  But I hope to work on some of my projects later.  And.... I'm putting the finishing touches on the new kit for release mid January.  I likey!!  Hope you do too.

Such a lovely card - I adore the old world feel. I send lollipops and rainbows to your little one.
