Little Baby Jesus with Neat and Tangled

Hi Everyone,

A super quick post this time, as I am attending a poor little sickie at home today.

I wanted to share with you a lovely yet very simple Christmas card with the Little Baby Jesus set by Neat and Tangled. I coloured a few of these images last year, during the 30 day colouring challenge by Kathy Racossin, and that means that putting cards together with these is very easy now! 

My idea for this card was to have a lovely golden pattern against a blue background, but what I didn't think about was that Distress Inks would most likely reactivate with the touch of additional inks on them, and so the gold and blue mixed a bit - turning slightly greenish... I think it's pretty either way, though, and the shimmer from the Delicata ink is fantastic! 

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Little Tangles: Anything goes
I Love ProMarkers: Use something new (I used my new stencil from Create a Smile)

Super simple, super fast to put together (especially when the previously coloured images were already cut out and all!), yet really nice, don't you think?!

Have a great (and healthy!) week,

  1. I love it when a plan comes together and it all fits and you end up with a lovely card as a result of having some coloured and cut images already. I love the greenish background and I think that was a happy accident. And you've got started on your Christmas cards already! Xx

    1. Ya... knowing me, I'll have this one card done, and then I'll start feeling cheeky, and make the next one in...November ;-) But I am using up pre-coloured images on days when I want to make something but don't have a tonne of time... Can't wait for another 30 day colouring challenge, it helped me immensely!

  2. Beautiful Christmas card.
    Thanks for joining us at I Love Promarkers.
