A little Christmas Inspiration...

Hi there, well it's my turn today to share a little bit of inspiration for Digi Doodle Studios. For this, I've chosen Nicolette and created this little Christmas card...

On a 7x7 card blank, I matt and layered red satin card with some patterned paper. The image I reversed, printed on to watercolour card, coloured with Promarkers, then carefully cut out. I added loose glitter for dimension and effect. To decorate, I added die cut poinsettia flower with die cut leaves, berry sprigs and twigs. Finishing off with die cut 'Merry Christmas' sentiment.

Materials Used 
Digi Doodle Studios - 'Nicolette' image
ProMarkers - Satin, Blush, Berry Red, Crimson, Sandstone, Vanilla, Leaf Green, Cool Grey 2 - 4- 5 and Limited Edition Apple Cider
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
Craft Buddy/Dawn Bibby Creations - Poinsettia, Berry Sprigs, Blossom Stamen and Twigs dies. Red Satin card and Green Non-Shed Glitter card
Kanban - 'Deck the Halls' A4 backing paper
Ranger - 'Patina' Stickles glitter glue
Britannia  - 'Merry Christmas' dies
Creative Expressions  - Cosmic Shimmer 'Iced Snow' glitter
My Stash  - Red Metallic Ribbed paper
