Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a good weekend, not long now until Christmas finally arrives - gulp - I still have so much to do - including lots of Christmas cards still to make! :oO

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the just oh so cute Mini Mimosa Snowflake.  These stamps are just amazing, they are as they say 'mini' with all the same fabulous detail of a normal sized stamp.

Here is the full card:

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Bildmilarna - Mini Mimosa - Snowflake
Papers:  Bildmilarna - Frosty Christmas - Mr Snowman
Snowflake Die:  Memory Box - Frostyville Wreath (I just snipped it to make a border)
Image Border Die:  Spellbinders - Floral Ovals
Corner Die:  Cheery Lynn - Lace Corner Deco A (I snipped this one to make it smaller)
Tag:  Magnolia Doohickey - Memory Tag
Sentiment Die:  Go Kreate - Rectangle Frilly #1
Flowers and Lace:  From My Stash
Sentiment Stamps:  Lili of the Valley - Christmas Handwritten Phrases

I have coloured the image with Copics, Promarkers and Flexmarkers:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E53 Y21 Y11
Hat and Dress:  B01 B00 B000 B0000 / R27 R24 (heart on the hat)
Gloves, Boots and Scarf:  Satin (Promarker) / Antique White (Flexmarker) / E0000
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have used a Cool Grey 50% Prismacolour pencil for shading on the image

The image has been outlined with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
All the papers and everything else has been edged in Walnut Stain Distress Ink

I have used Glamour Dust around all the edges of pretty much everything that you can see on the card and for the snowflake on the image

Here is a picture of the inside of the card where you will see that I have followed the layout through to match the front:

And one final picture of the tag:

Phew - and that's it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Toodle pip.

Oh Hazel, I have not seen the mini stamps yet, but yours makes such a statement. You can get so many more design elements on your page.

I love that you matched the inside to the outside and those dies are gorgeous!
