This is my next instalment as GDT for the C.R.A.F.T challenge and the theme this time is Traditional Christmas colours. This was a tough one for me as I rarely create with a red and green combination and I’m not really in the Christmas mood but I was pleased with how it turned out. So a nice early start for me on my 2015 Christmas creations, which means I’ll have no excuse not to have enough cards for Christmas this year. I’ve chosen Village Tree Store by one of our sponsors DRS Designs and created this pretty card:

Traditional Christmas

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: YG67, YG63, YG61, G20, R27, R24, R22, E57, E55, E53, E51, C3, C1, BG10 I added some Snow Tex for a textured snow effect and Kindy Glitz to make it glisten
