The most wonderful time of the year.

Hi folks its Thursday and that means my weekly visit to
this week I am using  
 To create the card I stamped the image 4 times (2 full images and 2 part)
I coloured the  edge of the main image and the back of the fireplace, on the second image I coloured the full image and removed the back of the fireplace. I cut and coloured the mantle and socks and on the last image I just coloured the stocking all with promarkers. I then decoupaged the image up using 3d foam. I used Christmas Nordic paper that looked like wall paper mounted on black card to be the first layer. Then I mounted the fireplace topper. The sentiment was stamped onto silver mirri then embossed with black embossing powder. I mounted the silver mirri onto a punched element to resemble a mirror drawing on threads and  added a brad. I then used the tiny holly leaf from the Holly Jolly set coloured and mounted them up as corner elements and on the mirror. To finish off the card I added a Christmas tree charm coloured with promarkers.
Many thanks for calling by.
