GD spot at C2CU

(for the PaperNest Blog Hop post - see below)
I came in the top 3 at C2CU in August - and I was asked to be a GD now in October, -  and of course I accepted! It`s an honor to be asked!

This time the theme is "Christmas festivities", with the twist " what does christmas mean to you" - for me that means taking time off from work, relaxing, go for walks, hanging up "Julenek" - wich is a Scandinavian tradition (you can read about it here) decorating the christmas tree, and of course good food and christmas cookies.

My card is inspired by the "Julenek tradition" - so here it is:

And heres some close-ups:

Stamps; Bildmålarna (Mimosa-winter birds, Tree with fence, and Christmas banner- small) All images are colored with copics (For listing see below.)
Papers: «Piondesign- Waiting for Santa II – Starry» and Inkido – "Happy Christmas Greetings"
The birds are cut out from a paper from «Pion design- Wintertime in swedish lappland»
Dies used; SpellbinderGrand Decorative Label One, Joy Craft; Winter Wishes – 6002/2021, Memory box Rizza Snowflake and Lindeman Snowflake.

Other things: I have drawn The «Julenek» myself. The small snowflakes are metal embellishments from Storyteller, and I have used Stampendous Frantage Shabby white embossing enamel on them.

Copics used:
Skin: E50,51,21,11 - E93
Hair: E55,53,51,50
Basket / Coat / Fence : E21,23,25
Green: BG90,93,96
Fur: W1,2,3,4
Birds: W8,6,4 - E17,18
Snow: B41,B0000
Julenek: E21,23, YR24,15 - E17,18

  1. Eva Thank you for sharing your tradition of "Julenek" and the link so that I could learn about it. Oh, what a special thing to do - so loving and respectful of our wildlife and so in keeping with the 'Sharing' spirit of Christmas. I could go on for ages saying more about "Julenek" but I'd better direct myself to your beautiful card. You have illustrated your special tradition so prettily with all the birds flocking around your little girl and, I just love the Story your card tells. Good luck in our challenge this week.

  2. What a beautiful card Eva and such a wonderful tradition! I too have been over and read all about it via your link. My husband and I feed our birds all year round but with extra special food in winter. You can really see the story in your card, so beautifully coloured and the embellishments are superb. I love everything about it.

    So glad you joined in the challenge at OSAAT this week, I do hope we see you again soon.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT member
