Now for a super quick holiday card idea, a Santa Boot.
I found this totally cute pattern at Whimsie Doodles. It is called a Whimsie Cut. It is a pattern you purchase, print out and decorate as you would like to. All of the parts print out on one piece of paper and then you cut out the parts. This was seriously so fast to put together.

I printed this out on Curious Iridescent Cryogen White, available at CutCardStock.com. This paper has a great, smooth feel to it, it has a slight sparkle making it fun to use for cards and it just LOVES Copic markers. (this is on sale right now too)
I used the printed out boot card for a pattern to cut the boot portion our of a piece of Jenni Bowlin Core'dinations embossed cardstock. This cardstock come with an embossed pattern in it. All I needed to do then was to sand it to expose the embossed design.
I colored the holly and berries with my Copic markers and then gave the berries a coating of the Aleene's paper glaze which gave them a great epoxy finish. They were finished off with a dot of white 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip.
When this is printed out, there is a separate piece to cut out that is the band with the bells on it and a pattern for the sole of the boot. The band and bells were colored with Copic markers and the sole of the boot was cut from another color of Core'dinations cardstock.

I just had to share some more photos. I thought you Disney lovers might like some glimpses of the Christmas parade.

Thank you for that perfect Tuesday Trigger, I'm such a fan of anything Black and White with a bit of color! I love that adorable boot card, the embossed pattern really makes it special.
And thanks for the parade pics, I didn't renew my Disneyland passes this year so I'm missing the Christmas fun.
Christmas Blessings to you!
