Im sorry but Ive combined two challenges together again this week, Mo's Mannings 3rd Challenge is anything but a card, and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge is anything Candy, so Ive used this cute gorgeous image of Bella and Bronte fishing around in their Christmas Stockings to cover I hope both of these challenges, theres lots of candy on the floor and and inside on the lost leaf theres some more with the cheeky Santas Helpers, and for my Cheek Ive created a Christmas List for Mo's Challenge, so its a bit of a poetic licence this week, I hope that this will be accepted by both camps.
The main image was printed from my computer and coloured with my copic pens and some crystal glitter on the fluffy edges of the stockings, as was the small image inside. Ive then cut them both out and mounted them onto a piece of red card. For my base card/folder Ive cut a 8"x 8" white base card and cut out a piece for the pocket, of plain card to fit inside my folder.
Then I printed four pieces of the same paper for all the main surfices, and mounted them all onto red card. The inside one is cut at a slant to make the pocket and mounted on the right hand leaf. On the lost leaf Ive mounted my Santa's Helpers.
On the front of my card Ive used three different papers all from the Nitwit Downloads, sorry I meant to say what papers they were, anyway on all of these ones Ive used my EK Success Fir Tree border punch and layered them up one on top of the other and then positioned it across the middle of the front leaf. Ive then used a fifth paper on another piece of red card for the mount across the top of the last three, and wrapped a piece of wired ribbon and stuck it to the back. Then Ive mounted my coloured image with some foam tape on top of this, and the sentiment strip was positioned below to the left. This was printed from my computer.
To finish of Ive used three poinsetta's and some punched out fern leaves to create the flower arrangement at the top on the left. I should also comment that for some unknown reason my camera really doesnt do a very good job of showing the shadowing of my colouring so please forgive me for that, if I use my newer camera with more pixels, it makes it more difficult for me to adjust the sizing, Im not a photographer Im sorry to say.
