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.
