Henry with Bauble

I have made this card for my eldest daughter using my new Grand Calibur die cutting machine. I have used XXL Frame Frilly #2 from Go Kreate to create the shaped card and layers.

The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp called 'Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble', coloured with promarkers. I have touched up the bauble with gold stickles glitter glue.

The backing papers and christmas tree are from Nitwits Collection 'Heavenly'.

From our house to yours

I have made this card for a fellow crafter.......

This insert is from Bearly Mine Digi Sets 'Christmas Inserts' to match the backing paper used on the front of the card.
It has been layered onto gold card.

Image is from hAnglar and stAnglar coloured with Promarkers and layered onto gold card. I have applied Polar White Flowersoft to the fluffy part of her hat and gold Stickles Glitter glue to the basket and bow of the parcel.
Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz Distressing Ink was used around the image to remove some of the white area.
The large embossed circle around the image is Marianne Design Creatable die.
The heart is a Sizzix die and it has been covered with Pinflair Ice Diamond Glitter.
The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.
The laced ribbon and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves are created using a Martha Stewart punch.
