One more Christmas card with a fun fold

Hi friends, 
Are you all ready for the holidays? I think have most of it done... but things keep popping 
I have been busy making christmas cards all threw december. Every year I plan to start early, and every year I end up doing most of it at the last moment. But there's lots of fab inspiration out there. I haven't colored Magnolias much lately, don't know why. So many cuties. So I got this chrismas image out. I stamped it with brown ink- witch gave it a softer look that I liked. 
Went well with the vintage red I love so much. 

I was inspired by a card I saw over at Camillas facebook page (sorry I couldn't find it to link directly). I used Maja design papers and Memorybox dies to decorate. Flowers are North Star Stamps. Sentiment by Norsk Stempelblad.
Kortet er inspirert av et kort jeg så på Camillas facebook side. Jeg klarte ikke finne det igjen, men her er link til bloggen hennes. 

Copic colors used/ Jeg har brukt følgende copic tusjer:
Skin/Hud:  E13-11-21-000, E93 
Hair/Hår: E39-37-35-31-30, E49
Reds: E18-09-07, R24-22, W7
Greens/Grønt: E89-87-84-81, W7
Brown/Brunt: E47-44-43-41
Shadow/skygge: W7-5-3-1-00 

The card has three layers with a pocket for a gift card.
 Kortet har flere lag, med lomme til gavekort.

 Here's another fold.
Her er en fold til. 

And this is the card open.
Og her er innsiden.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

CMN julekalender /advent calendar #21: Tutorial on coloring red

Good morning crafty friends!
Today it's my turn to show some Copic inspiration over at the Copic Marker Norge Advent calendar. Behind door #21 I give a tutoral on how to color a dress in my favorite christmas red combination. Warning- lots of pics and a long post today- hope it's worth your time:)

I dag er det min tur til å inspirere i Copic Marker Norges julekalender, bak luke nr. 21 skuler det seg  en liten trinn for trinn forklaring på hvordan jeg fargelegger med julerødt (min favoritt kombinasjon). Les tutorialen på norsk i CMN bloggen! 

This is what I want to make. The box is very much inspired by a box I found over at Trine's papirkaos.

I used the pretty Fairy Bells image by Make it Crafty. I am using the following colors for the red dress:  E18-E09- E07, R24 og R22

I start by coloring my deepest shadows using E18. I color the in the deepest creases of the skirt and on her dress top.

Next I grab my E09, flicking from the E18 and out.

Next is E07.

Then E24 to get that christmas bright red in the blend. I am keeping a small white space. 

 Then I grab my R22. Filling out the rest of the dress.  

Next repeat the process using all 5 colors. (This is where I noticed I had colored a part of her bow, and decided to give the whole thing a go with all 5 markers. LOL)

 To get a better blend I went over the whole dress a second time with all 5 colors,
I also colored her hat.  

Next I colored the rest of the image using these copic colors: 
Skin: E13-11-00-000, R20, Eyes: E35-37
Hair: E37-35-31-30
Greens: E89-87-84-81
Yellows: E35, YR24-23-21-20
"Whites": W7-3-1-00
Brown: E37-35-33-31-30

Finally I put a shadow around the image to create more depth. 
I used W5-3-1-00 and blender. I added a tiny touch of W7 under her shoes and here and there around the image. 
You can find my tutorial on how to create the shadow around the image HERE.

Here is my finished project using the image. I decorated a chocolate box. 

 With yummy chocolate inside.

Hope my tutorial was useful! 

I would like to enter the following challenges/jeg vil delta i disse utfordringene:
Card and Scrap: Juleller nyttår
Ett Trykk: Julebrett (litt usikker på om dette teller som brett- men prøver meg)
Copic Marker Spain: Add something red

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
Have a lovely december day!

Good morning crafty friendes, 
It's december 10th and it's time to open a new window in our Advent Calendar over at Copic Marker Norge. I made a christmas shopping list wall hanger for my Christmas shopping list. 

Da er vi kommet til luke 10 i adventskalenderen hos Copic Marker Norge. Det  er mye som skal huskes på til jul, derfor har jeg laget en huskeliste som kan henge på veggen i førjulstiden og være både dekorativ og nyttig. Jeg henger på en blokk med klistrelapper som jeg kan ta med meg når jeg skal ut og handle.

 The wall hanger is a 6 x 12 inch cardstock with Maja Design patterned papers. Flowers by WOC, die by Memorybox and some cheese cloth behind the image.

Jeg har skåret til en 6 x 12 " kartong og dekorert med mønsgerpapir fra Maja Design, dies fra Memory Box, blomster fra WOC og charms fra Korthobby. Jeg har også litt osteklut bak motivet. 

  Image is Carolers Three by Mo's Digital Pencil. Copics used:
