It's Christmas Comes Early at Crafting When We Can! Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine Stamps!

It's never too early to start on your Christmas cards Ladies and at Crafting When We Can, we are happy to  be sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps and our Theme is "Christmas Comes Early".  I'm using the image Rory's Christmas Princess and have wanted to color her up for quite a while.
I used copics to color her,white flower soft around the bottom edge of her dress, diamond stickles on the dress and a Wink of clear Stella on the folds, ornaments, and petticoat ruffles.  I love the background effect, almost like there was some snow softly falling.  I have this wonderful gold fringe braid with adhesive -thought it looked elegant at the bottom of the image.  The flowers are a cluster of Petal lu, and some sparkled pink accent flowers with Pink Pearls to accent the front. 
The finished inside liner has the reverse of the gold snowflake paper used on the front.  I stamped one of my favorite Christmas sayings on a great gold cardstock and accented it with a white poinsettia.  Just waiting for the perfect person on my Christmas Card List.  Please visit Crafting When We Can and get some inspiration for YOUR list!

  1. So very beautiful! Your coloring is just awesome and the flower soft is so perfect! I have tried to use this and just make a mess. Hugs, Robin

    1. Thank you so much Robin! I think the trick to flower soft is to use some very thick glue? I use Martha Stewart craft glue that I got a couple of years ago at Hobby Lobby-also called "glittering glue" and it comes with a brush-I just dab it on and then pile on the FS then shake it off-push it around on the area you want it to cover while it's still moist. Hope that helps? XOX
