Matt and layered silver embossed card with embossed centura pearl card. On this I added the ribbon border. I die cut 3 snowflakes, 2 from silver glitter card with X-Cut dies and 1 from holographic with freebie die from magazine, placing them across ribbon border, along with brad and gems. I die cut more holographic card using the smallest grand decorative circle die and layered this with the image, after I printed, coloured, added glitter, liquid pearls and die cut using scalloped circle die. To finish off I added the sentiment topper, that I die cut from both red card and silver glitter card, with the first edition die. Using the red card as the main and silver to highlight sentiment. I also added die cut holly sprigs along with ruby red pearl drops for berries and a couple of gems too!
