Here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:
- This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date.
- I have cased a card from Tracy MacDonald that I saw over at Art Impressions Stamps a few years ago.
Digital Image Details:
- Christmas Tree Light Bulb: You can find this image in the store. Details above.
- This image was coloured digitally using my Photoshop Elements program. Additional Credits include:
- I have used a layer style on the top of the bulb. This style is courtesy of Scaps Statchoo (blog no longer available).
- I have also used a layer style on the ornaments. This style was designed by Heather of HG Designs.
- I have also used a layer style to give the bulb itself a bit of a glass look though it is very subtle. This style was designed by Lost in Thought (Deviantart).
Digital Sentiment Details:
- The word art creation was created by Paulette from Create with TLC. It is a freebie I picked up a while back. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store. It has been recoloured for the purposes of this design.
- The banner was created using a brush designed by Heather of HG Designs. It is paper pieced with a paper from my Yuletide Textures Kit (details below).
- The button is from the General Accessories section of my Tag Grab Bag 1: Cotton Candy Collection Kit available for purchase in the Scribbles Designs store. You can find it HERE.
- The bow is from the Brads, Buttons & Bows section of my A Taste of Summer Kit available for purchase in the Scribbles Designs store. You can find it HERE.
Digital Sentiment Details:
- The sentiment is one of own that I created a long time ago as a 'Holiday Handout' (before I started the 12 Days of Christmas). You can find it on my blog for FREE by clicking HERE. I have altered the colours slightly to match the colours of my project.
Digital Paper Products:
- The green paper used in the background, along with the grey-bluish colour used to paper piece the banner shape, are both from my Yuletide Textures Kit.
- The bokeh paper on the front is from my Bokeh Multicolour Set 1 Kit.
- The lightbulb paper is from my An Eclectic Christmas 2 Kit.
- I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the sentiment on the inside.
- I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.

- http://thepapershelter.blogspot.ca/ --Use Four Layers (the green background is layer 1, the bokeh paper is layer 2, the lights paper is layer three, and the light itself and the banner constitute layer 4. I'm of the mind that the button and sentiment are layer 5 and the string is layer 6 but you guys might not agree. However, since I only need 4 layers, I should be good to go!)

Take care my friends and I hope to see you all again soon!
Until next time,
For those of you who follow my 12 Days of Christmas each year, you're going to want to pay attention to this image as it is going to possibly feature in one of the clues...
