Christmas Hamster

For my card today, I just had to use this new image called Christmas Hamster from Sylvia Zet.  I printed her onto Cryogen paper and then die cut around her with my Polynesian Sails Angel Wing.  I used a wonderful metallic red paper to cut my Polynesian Sails Oval frame, using spray adhesive to stick it down.  I colored the image with Copic markers, adding sparkly accents with Smooch ink and Viva Deco Pearl pen for the snowflakes.  I also added some gold leafing pen around the edges of the angel wing.  Across the bottom of my card, I added the lower part of a Tiffany Border

Because the frame is so large, I wanted a smaller poinsettia on this card.  So I created one using the two smallest petals on my Mega Fanciful Flourish; I cut 5 of each of them.  I love all the veining on the petals.  The flower measures about 1.75 inches wide.  Below the flower I added some pine from the new Wreath Strip die.  The DP is from Little Yellow Bicycle.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I just re-read how you made the poinsettia and such a clever idea. Never would have thought of doing it that way. Edna
