TCC Feature Friday & Copic Color Challenge!!




For today’s Feature Friday card for The Character Cafe, I have chosen to do another Christmas card.  I know it’s only October and it was 80+ degrees in Texas today, but WHATEVER!  Christmas is coming whether we want it to or not, so we might as well get ready!  ;o)

This card is also for the Copic Color Challenge blog!



This is a shot of what the card looks like opened up.

Make sure if you do one of these, you have enough embellishments, time and creativity because this one seems to take a lot of all of them…just ask my brain after doing this one!!!  ;o)


  • Snowman – The Character Cafe
  • Card – Tri-Shutter Card (search You Tube for videos)
  • Paper – red is Heidi Grace Midnight Kisses and Green is Cloud Nine Design Luster Sprigs – both were from Big Lots!
  • Rub-on’s – last year’s after-Christmas clearance at Michaels
  • Vellum Quotes
  • Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (to make the image shiny)
  • Skittles
  • Prima Flowers – Garnet bottle
  • Snowflake - Recollections Brad with SU embossing powder
  • Copics – BG96, E33, BV20, YR68, BG10, C5, B60, YG03, R20
  • December Tag - Plantin Schoolbook cut at 1”

NOTE:  I made the mistake of showing this card to my hubby!  He asked if this was going to be our Christmas card.  “Uhhhh, nope!  It’s my DT card.”  He says “Well, can’t it be our Christmas card?”  Crud!  One down…49 more to go!  LOL 

Please be sure to check out the rest of our DT to see what they have going on this week!  And whatever you do, DON’T forget to check back next Friday for our new release blog hop!!!!










Thanks for stopping by!

Just say "NO." And really, isn't variety better than the same card? I can't imagine making 49 more! I thought that was UTE - I love that stuff. BTW, your card is fabulous!
