A Special Present from Santa for Digi Doodle Studios

Hello friends!  Happy weekend!  It has warmed up slightly for us this weekend and the sun is out…for now!  It’s supposed to get below freezing again soon though and I’ll have my warm slippers ready for it!

Today I have another fun card to share with you using a Pairables set from Digi Doodle Studios:


Surprise!  This cute little girl is popping out of the gift marked:  “From Santa” and she threw open the box lid and is tossing blue ribbon around everywhere!  She seems to be so happy about celebrating in the cold!  LOL!

All of the images I’ve used for this card came from the Christmas Elves Pairables set from Digi Doodle Studios. (There are so many elements to play with in this set!)  I have actually enlarged a couple of the images from the set and sized them the way I needed them to fit with my scene and make it appear as if she was popping out of a large box.  I printed out the girl a couple of times so that I could place her behind the box with the lid and then another image to cut her out without the lid of the box and make it more dimensional.

I’ve used several layers of cardstock and more decorative papers behind her with both stitched and scallop rectangle dies.  I used my Martha Stewart “goo” border punch to add the “snow” look at the top of the layers with white Glitterstock.

I’ve added some silver metallic ribbon behind the smaller layers and placed a snowflake rhinestone in the middle of the bow.  I die cut the sentiment with a stitched tag die and added some silver twine to tuck alongside the present.  I stamped some pink snowflakes over the tag and crinkled it up a bit for dimension and movement.


Here’s a closer look of the coloring I did on her with Copic markers.  I’ve used a white gel pen for her cheeks as well as to help create the texture on her coat.

I’ve used some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for the sparkle on her hat trimmings and she was popped out from the background paper with foam tape.


I hope my card gave you a smile today and were inspired in some way!

Thanks so much for popping in here today my friends!  So happy you’re here!  I’ll see you again soon!

    1. Awe! You’re so sweet Meghan! Thank you! 🙂 I started coloring YEARS ago after seeing some people using the Copics and fell in love with what could be achieved with them! Mostly learned by watching others (online) at first and picked up on my own with my own style. I have taken classes all online, some with education, expierence and others who I just admire their coloring…I don’t “copy’ anyone exactly, but just pick up on things here and there as I go. There are SO many talented people out there that I want to learn from them all!! LOL! I feel like I do better and feel more comfortable doing my own style depending on the image…I just can’t do EXACTLY what others do as it seems to take away the fun for me. So now I’m comfortable with myself even if it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. 🙂 Hope that makes sense!


  1. She is just adorable – popping out of the box. I went and snuck a peep at the images and oh how cute, I may have to consider them. As always great coloring – and yes you are right everyone develops their own style with copic markers. Great job.


  2. This is the sweetest card ever! Love that she’s in such a pretty pink color, and as always, your coloring and attention to detail make her seem so realistic! Love, love love!!!


  3. What a stunning Christmas card Vicki!! I love that sweet image and it’s colored to perfection! Gorgeous sparkle and color
    combo too!
    Hugs, Tammy


  4. What a pretty colour combination and an adorable image. Loving the bling, your design and those wonderful bling icleicles x.


  5. This is a wonderful creation with beautiful colors and detail work. I love the sparkly goo-punched borders and great little bow with a snowflake, but this little girl popping out of the gift-wrapped box is too darned cute! Adorable card!


  6. Oh my goodness she is adorable! The dimension and the coloring is fabulous, and I love all the snow and especially the “material” on her collar and sleeves – like those fuzzy inside sweaters.


  7. She is adorable and so pretty in pink. The entire card is so lovely with such pretty embellishments.



  8. Such a sweet image, Vicki, and your coloring is magnificent! Love how she pops out of the box. The color combo is great and I love that sheer bow with the little snowflake embellie. Beautifully done, my friend.
