Tobaggan For Two

Not a shaped card today, what a change!  I set out to use some of my new toys with this card and I sure did enjoy making it.

The decorative paper is from Craft House, called Plum Pudding-Brandy Sauce.  I've used the Holly Flourish from Cheery Lynn dies, and for the first time Die-namics Fancy Flourish.  The sentiment is also from LOTV, Christmas Circular Sentiments Set 5 and this is the first time I've used it.  It was stamped on to Spellbinders Standard Circles and matted and layered using the same and also, for the first time, Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs.  I've added some red jewels to jazz up the sentiment a bit, I also used the same jewel on the small version of the Ironwork Motifs and cut another Holly Flourish to pieces to surround it, to help balance out the card a bit more.

The image is LOTV Toboggan For Two, very appropriate today considering it's snowing from the heavens at the moment here in East Kilbride.  The image was stamped and coloured with Copics and matted and layered with Spellbinders Classic Squares Small and Large and then mounted onto a Fleur Di Lis Square.  Copics List - Clothes for the girl R32,35,39. E40,41,43.  Clothes for the boy E13,15,17,18,25,27,29.  R22,24.  YR20,21,23.  YG93,95,97.  Hair E31.  Skin E00,000,21.  R20.  Sledge E31,33,35,37,71,77,79.  Snow W0,1,2.  The presents are coloured using the same reds and yellow reds as the clothes. 

That about wraps this post up.  I'm going to go have another wee look at the snow and then it will be almost lunchtime.  Have great day and thanks for looking.  Hugz, Janice
