Hi all, today I have a Christmas card that I made and would like to enter into a few challenges:
I am so way behind with Christmas creations that I am trying to make as many as I can but don't worry I will not be posting them, lol.
Instead of square I decided to make a DL shaped double gatefold card, the papers are Back to Basics, I have used silver mirri card for mounting the sentiment, papers and image as well as for the holly leaves and baubles.
The sentiment is a new stamp that I purchased from Stamping Up I used my EK Success circle cutter and distressed the edges with worn lipstick distress ink.  The edges of the gatefold have also been punched with a EK Success border punch.
On the inside of my double gatefold is an image that I got from Pink Gem Designs she is called Jodie with Baubles.  I have coloured her with Copics I then added glitter to all the little snowflakes then added glossy accents to the little baubles. I added Cosmic Shimmer PVA Red Berry glue for the berries of the holly and at the top of the image, I added a red bow punched baubles and snowflakes 
This next picture shows the glitter and glossy accents a lot better. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank you all for visiting and for the wonderful comments that you leave, I hope you like my card and please come back soon.
