Welcome back and thanks for coming to take a look at my second project for the JessicaLynnOriginal July Digital Stamp Release!

I LOVE me some Sugar Skulls!  I know this Day of the Dead Couple probably isn't what most people think of when they think of Christmas... but I imagined these two would be quite happy with their festive holiday colors and I think I can see them smiling.. can you?!

I pulled these two into my PrintShop program, sized them and then I added the text to the banner in a font that I chose.  I decided to print a second, but again, I only wanted the banner so I could pop it up so I moved the image so most of it was off the edge to print mostly just the banner... really just to save paper... 'cause that's how I roll.  Then I colored them in with my Copics and die cut them with a label die, chose a couple background layers and popped up my sugar skull couple on the top layer.

When I added my pop-up tape, I left a space where my ribbon was going to be so that I wouldn't risk having an area that was raised because the ribbon was smushed under some pop-up tape.  Then I cut out my second banner, added a hand drawn heart and popped it up over the image.

I decided to have some fun with this one and added a couple fabric roses from my stash, a little crocheted doily and a feather... and of course a few sequins :)!

I am linking up to the Inkspirational Anything Goes with Red Challenge, the Fab N Funky Christmas In July Challenge and the QKR Stampede Christmas in July Challenge!  You should check them out... get started on YOUR Christmas cards!
