Dies to Die For - Holly

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the extra hour in bed!

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using one of the new Wee Stamps called Holly - ain't she just beautiful - I just love this image.

Here is the full card:

The recipe for the card is as follows:

Stamp:  Wee Stamps - Holly
Kraft Card:  Bazzill Kraft
Papers:  Prima - North Country
Large Snowflake:  Memory Box - Bianca Snowflake
Small Snowflakes:  Cheery Lynn - Snowflakes
Ribbon, Rhinestones & Bells:  The Hobby House
Sentiment Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Grungy Christmas Messages

The image has been coloured with CopicsPromakers and Flexmarkers as follows:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (Cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23 E21
Jumper:  B00 BG000 BG0000 / E74 E71 E70
Trousers:  E74 E71 E70
Leggins, Socks & Scarf:  E74 E71 E70 / Satin (Promarker) / Antique White (Flexmarker)
Ear Muffs:  B00 BG000 BG0000
Branch:  E37 E35
Holly:  R39 R29 R27 R24 / G29 G46 G24

I have outlined the image with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
The papers, card and snowflakes have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
I have used some Liquid Applique covered in Glamour Dust to create the snow on the branch

And there you have it.  The Cheery Lynn Snowflakes is just awesome - there are stacks of snowflakes on it and they are so detailed too!

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your lovely comments - they are so much appreciated.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Take care

Ta-ta for now

This is just lovely...That memory box snowflake is so lovely. I just bought it and have yet to try it. 2 more blasted gardening cards and then I can get cracking on with Christmas cards!
The colors you chose in your design papers is so perfect with your colouring of the sweet image.
