Merry & Bright Christmas

Hello there, I am back to share my last Christmas card of 2021 with you. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to use all of the products that I wanted for my Christmas cards this year. Every year I tell myself to start earlier and every year I fail! Never mind! Today I have a card to share with you using the adorable Muriel from Purple Onion Designs. Isn't he/she just adorable skating on the ice?

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by stamping Purple Onion Designs Muriel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to white cardstock. I also stamped the Purple Onion Designs Snow Much Fun Background Stamp on to another piece of cardstock. Muriel was coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies list) and fussy cut it out with scissors. 

I then coloured the background scene with Copic Markers before cutting around the top part. I took another panel of white cardstock and added ink blending to it with Distress Inks and blending brushes. I used Mermaid Lagoon at the bottom, Blueprint Sketch in the middle and Seedless Preserves at the top. It was adhered to a 5" x 7" white card base with thin foam tape. I then added the background image on top.

Before adding Muriel on top, I added Arteza White Gel Pen snow to the background. Muriel was added on top with more foam tape. I took the sentiment from the Purple Onion Designs Holiday Messages Sentiment Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was added to the card with more foam tape.

I wouldn't usually use this much foam tape on my cards, it is three layers high, but since I am hand delivering it, I thought it would be ok! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I very much appreciate it. Wishing you a wonderful day! 


  1. Love everything about this one ... the dimension for the hand-delivered card is perfection

  2. Absolutely adorable Christmas scene, I love Muriel skating on the ice with that glorious background behind her! Your ink blending, fussy cutting and colouring are flawless! Nice to see a larger card too, the 5 x 7 works so well for this festive scene! Xx
