"North Pole Employees"

Good Morning Ladies hope the weather is begining to ease up near you its still pretty cold here in Gloucestershire and weve certainly had some hard frosts in the morning. Anyway todays card is yet another for the Dream Team and this is the second of Mo's "North Pole Employees" and you will find it here this image comes as a pair, and I think they are so cute, Ive printed this one onto white card then coloured him with copic pens, I then used Nestabilitie Labels 8 to cut it out and then Ive drawn around the die to create the mount for it. The Sentiment is yet another of the Just-Rite Circle Stamps and Ive cut this out with a circle die and used a larger one for the mount. I did use some Glamour dust on the fluffy bits of both hats.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of dark purple pearlescent card and one of  Kay Millers Downloads called "Cutie pa Tootie" its got a really fabulous purple pattern paper which Ive used for the base layer and then Ive used two more of the papers a pink and lime green ones that Ive cut in strips and use a leaf punch down both edges and layered them up under a strip of the same purple pearlescent card that Ive ran through my cuttlebug with one of my embossing folders.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the left and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created a flower spray with a Hellebore and two purple cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, these were stuck to my card with some silicone glue and some punched out holly leaves on which I used the Martha Stewart punch on, the last thing I did was use some purple stickles on the petals of the Hellabore.

Hello Shirley, such a cute christmas card, love the colourful image. Secondly, thankyou so much for my wonderful christmas card. Its my 1st one and taking pride and place in the living room. Got to ask, where did you get the envelope from. Its just perfect for cards with bulky embellishments and I want someone LOL.
