Hearts Christmas

Hi everyone, Sunday comes around so quickly, I have a week left at work then I have a whole week off for half term holiday and boy am I ready for it...

This week I have again created a Christmas Card 
Cheery Lynn Dies Used 
I love making Christmas Cards, I think its the colours, the glitter and the gorgeous papers.  The poinsettia below has been created using the Build a Flower series #1 from Cheery Lynn.  I distressed with Fired Brick Distress inks (nice and messy) then added the centres with have been glittered.  Behind the flower I have used the Lacey Christmas Ornaments which have also been glittered.. 
Most of my cards are 14.5cm x 14.5 cm (5/6inch Square)
for this card I cut my card size then cropped about 7cm off the bottom of the front of my card, I then die cut the Frills and Hearts border to create a lovely decorative edge. 

Copic Colours 
Greens - G29, 28, 24, 21
Browns - E49, 47, 44, 43, 42, 41, 40
Reds - R39, 37, 35
Yellow/Orange - YR24, 23, 21
I used a white highligthing pen for the little dots on the present and slippers.
