I can finally show you this card, as I know my bloggy friend, Pauline, who lives in England has received it. Pauline is on several design teams, and her cards are always beautiful.
This card is similar to "Here Kitty, Kitty" which I made for another friend, Di. (No prizes for guessing it features a kitty cat, instead of a bear).
The image is 'Merry Bear' by Stampavie, coloured with Promarkers. I added 3D Glossy Accents to the holly berries, and put a touch of Stickles on the gold-coloured ribbon on the gift. I bought the Laser Glitter 'snow' and the brass holly from a local craft shop.
The large gold snowflake is actually a Christmas tree decoration, the berries are from a large spray of gold and burgundy decorations, and I made the 'pins' from beads in my stash. I added a little 'Star Dust' Stickles to the flowers and leaves.
'Merry Christmas' is gold mirror card, cut with a Cheery Lynn die, and I used Martha Stewart's 'Aspen Snowflake' PATP punch for the red strip.
Once again, I have used the beautiful 'Floral Ovals' by Spellbinders for our personal message inside, and my contact details on the back of the card. Corners are Cheery Lynn. Holly paper is Bo Bunny's 'Rejoice Holly'.
