Merry Kiss-mas card - inspired by a Vera Lane Studio image

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and that means it's my turn to post my DT projects for Vera Lane Studio. My first project is a Christmas card starring the couple from the image released last Wednesday called The Kiss. The set also comes with a sweet cat who had another appointment and isn't on this card...LOL.

I coloured the images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. They were fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, matted to black cardstock, and then fussy cut leaving a narrow black border. Foam tape was used to pop them up and create natural shadow.

The background was a rectangle of Christmas cardstock, with a narrow contrasting strip at the bottom to ground the two. This was matted with black cardstock so it would stand out from the white card base. The wording was printed onto white cardstock, matted with black, and popped up with foam tape. To finish the design, a pair of kissy lips were punched from red cardstock, and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. It was then matted with the same punched image cut from black and offset. The lips were then adhered to a circle punched from sparkly white cardstock, matted with black, and popped up on foam squares  so it would be higher than the images and sentiment.

Thanks for joining us today. That was so nice of you. Be sure to stop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop to check out The Kiss and all of the other fabulous image sets.
