Tiddly Inks Tuesday - Anything Christmas

Well, Thanksgiving is over and the countdown to Christmas has begun.  It is going to be a whirlwind three weeks.  Just weeks ago I thought I was ahead of the game  and now, all of a sudden, I feel very far behind.  Good news is that we have our tree up and stockings hung so, of course the rest is now up to Santa, right!?  The lack of sleep and worry about getting everything done in time has begun.  Thank goodness we have two weeks off for Christmas vacation as I will need them to recuperate.

This week we have a new challenge for you at Tiddly Inks and it goes right along with our holiday season.  The challenge is Anything Christmas.  Christy has a lot of great images in the store that would be just perfect for this challenge.  I tried to think out of the box and create a window card with more than one layer and a little added dimension.  I accomplished some of the look I wanted but it didn't turn out to be quite the same as my original vision.  The images from Tiddly Inks I used on this card are Faythe Gives, Sweet Dreams Wryn and Christmas Mantle.

This is what the very front of the card looks like.  I made a window so you could see through to the fireplace on the final layer of the card.  I wanted to make it look like Faythe, aka Santa, was going into the house, right to the fireplace and the stockings.

The second layer of the card has Wryn reading in her Christmas pajamas.  For the window in this layer I wanted to make it look like Wryn was reading in front of the fireplace.

Then there is the final layer with just the fireplace itself.  I added one of Christy's books to the side of the fireplace.  I mean what's Christmas without a good story?

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
MS Large Border Punch - presents
MS Small Border Punch - Ornaments
Self adhesive border

I hope with this busy and crazy season you can take a few moments to play along with this week's challenge.  I always love making Christmas and holiday cards and I just can't wait too see what you create.  And, of course the other Tiddly Inks ladies on the DT have absolutely amazing and wonderful cards to inspire you.  I hope you can take a few moments to stop by the challenge blog and check them out.

Have an absolutely amazing Tuesday!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
