Holiday Card Series 2017 Card 7 | Scene Building | Copic Coloring

Hi all!  I am back with Card 7 in my Holiday Card Series!  For today's card, I am using the adorable Christmas Pageant stamp set from Neat and Tangled! These are such cute kids!  I love them so much!

I started this card by stamping and coloring in these cute kids with Copic Makers.  All the colors I used I listed below!  There's a lot!!  Once I was done coloring them, I used the dies that coordinate to cut them out!!  I just love coordinating dies!! Makes my crafty life simpler.

I wanted to create a scene that these kids were actually on a stage.  I found some different pattern papers in my collection that I thought would do the trick!  I also used the In the Meadow die set from Papertrey Ink to create a curtain a valance!!

I had a lot of the scene built, and thought I would work on the sentiment before adding the kids to my card. I stamped and embossed the first half of the sentiment, and then stamped the rest on the inside

After adding the kids to the scene, I added some Wink of Stella to the Star, ornaments on the tree, and the bigger ornament to give extra shine!!  This card was a fun one to put together!!  All supplies are listed below as well as the video tutorial!
I'll be back with Card 8 very soon!!  


  1. This is just sweet Kari. I believe its caled the swag. A great job on this card.

  2. Select shades of same shading family while mixing, similar to a light or dim blue. Continuously begin with lightest shading as the establishment, and incorporate layers of darker shading.Best paper for copic markers

  3. Amazing work! I see talent and true passion for this hobby. I would like to know what materials you use - not only pens, but also paper. Because this post looks very inspiring.
    upd I found an interesting article about paper for copic markers, if anyone is interested.
