For this first card I used Fabulous Frames and the new Peace And Joy


Patteren Paper is GKD "Merry Little Christmas"
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red


 This one was quite a challenge to photograph. I finally took it outdoors. I wish you could see it in person, it is so sparkly. I will have a hard time giving it away LOL. The top layer is acetate. The pine boughs are stamped on it with Stazon and colored with Copics on the opposite side as the stamping since Copics will smear Stazon. The bird is fussy cut and place on top of the acetate. The background layer is glossy paper with the polished stone technique. A thin layer of Diamond Stickles. The Stickles wasn't enough to adhere so I added a layer of Glossy Accents and a layer of diamond glitter then adhered the acetate.
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red
Stamps: Peace And Joy


Pattern paper from my stash, no idea who made it.

Cardstock: Pure Luxury Kraft
Stamps: Peace And Joy


I used Festive Frame and outlined with Wink Of Luna Silver pen. Colored with Copics. I fussy cut the bird and attached with pop dots.

Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red
