Even though I am strongly in the camp of ‘consumer’ Christmas not being allowed to start until night closes on Thanksgiving, as a card maker, Christmas starts in July. This super fun card is one of the first designs I’m working on for the Christmas season. This image is great and I really went all out to make the lights pop on this card. Each light bulb was colored with Copic markers, highlighted with opaque white, given some dimension with glossy accents then given a glow with corresponding Copic 3-zero markers. This card just screams holiday fun to me.
