It's been a full week of Christmas here! This week's theme for Bellariffic Friday was "Animals", in the image, the paper or an embellishment. I haven't inked up Merry Christmas Branch with Birdies in a while and need to keep plodding on with my Christmas cards.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics.
The pattern paper is by 3 Bugs in a Rug, Candy Stripe and I paired it with some SU Real Red that I ran through my Polka Dots embossing folder. I added some crystal effects to the words - a very generous amount of crystal effects thanks to the larger than life hole in the applicator tip! A bit of SU Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, my Stardust glitter pen on the little dots and I was done. I got the layout from my "Wishes" book (Pg 18) by Jeanette R. Lynton - an excellent book! This really was a very easy and fast card to make and would be perfect for all my overseas friends as there are no bulky embellishments to add extra postage! Have a great weekend.
