Christmas Card

This is my card made from images from "The Graphics Fairy". I cut out the image with scalloped craft scissors, glued it to a blank card.  I then enhanced all the colors, e.g. berries and leaves, with my gel ink pens.  I scribbled with my Red pen and then wrote Merry Christmas over the scribbles.
   I cut out a spray of greens from another card and glued it to the side of the card.  I did the same with the envelope by cutting out a spray of blue vine and flowers and glued it to the flap.  I love the way this came out and made two.
  The Graphics Fairy provides free graphics very generously on every subject you can think of!  I just love all the vintage images.  Check it out.

More pictures:

This one has the green sprig at the side.  When using gel pens to enhance, be careful not to smear your image as they remain moist for awhile.  I blotted as I went along and then let them dry well. 
     Another great source for images is Dame Penniwig's Both of these blogsites provide images for your use totally free.  I have used them for years. 

You can buy blank cards at Wal-mart, A.C. Moore or Michael's Craft stores. 

Have a most wonderful day and please come back soon!
