So Very Merry card ~ inspired by a Vera Lane Studio image

Hi everyone! I am posting my very last Christmas card for 2019 today. It's a little one (only 3.5 x 4.5 inches) just big enough to accommodate the sweet little image called Treena by Vera Lane Studio. She is one of two images plus a sentiment from the set. She is so cute I want to hug her!

Treena was coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, and then matted with black cardstock to give that second narrow border. She was popped up on foam tape to create dimension and shadow.

The background was a rectangle of plaid paper matted with black cardstock. A strip of washi tape was used to ground her and faux stitching created a border using black pen. The sentiment from the digi set was printed onto white cardstock, matted with black. Once it was adhered to the top right corner, two enamel holly stickers and a berry were added, overlapping the sentiment and the plaid background.

What a sweet and simple card to create! Thanks for joining Treena and me today. We both want to wish you a Merry Christmas or a happy holiday depending upon what you celebrate. Be sure to pop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop and the VLS Facebook group when you get a minute. There is a lot of inspiration and more than a few must-haves to discover :)

Life is good; so is art.
