Christmas Cards for Unique Crafters Challenge

This month is all about Christmas projects! The UniqueCrafters Challenge Blog is being sponsored by Cedar Chest Designs so don’t forget to stop by and link your own project for a chance to win a free $10 gift certificate. Both of these cards and images are featured as examples on the website.
As a special bonus, you can download the “Natures Christmas Tree Image” for FREE and anybody who uses it or any other image from Cedar Chest Designs will be entered into a random drawing for a whopping $35 gift certificate.

To make my first card I used the new Reindeer Penguin image from Cedar Chest Designs. He is colored with Copic markers and I assembled the card with paper and embellishments from the Merry Christmas line by Echo Park. The main pattern paper is called “Merry Border Stripe.” I finished the card by adding a bit of red sparkle with my Spica pen, a quick brown pen border to the image edge and a simple satin brown bow.
Copic Marker Colors Used on Penguin Card:
Penguin: C00, C1, C3, C5, C6
Reindeer Antlers: E15, E18, E29
Red Accents: R22, R24, R27, R59
Green Vest: YG61, YG63, YG67
Brown Shoes: E11, E13, E15, E17, E18
Background: W0, W2, W4, W6 
For my second card I used the Dew Drop Christmas Ornament image from Cedar Chest Designs. It was also colored with Copic Markers and assembled with the Merry Christmas line by Echo Park. I used a pale red, green and yellow marker to add the background dots and added lots of Glamour Dust to make the ornament sparkle. I finished the image with a simple knot of gold twine and a holiday stamp on the bottom.
Copic marker Colors Used on Ornament Card:
