Totally Gorjuss Challenge 214 - Special Christmsa

Hello everyone, this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss is ANYTHING GOES - SPECIAL XMAS So to give you a little inspiration here's my DT card - this 8 x 8 card was made for my daughter.  Unfortunately she can't make it home this Christmas due to work commitments - she works as actress at The London Dungeons attraction. This is the first year ever she's not been at home to celebrate it with us, which is sad. I posted this card off to her today so I hope she likes it.  I tried to keep the lines clean and simple as she doesn't like anything too fussy.

To make the card I simply matted my gorgeous First Edition paper onto blue card, then cut another piece of blue card and die cut at the bottom using a new die I bought from Signature which is lovely die and was such a great price at £5.99. I stamped my LOTV sledging pair and coloured them with Copics, and then matted my image onto both cream pearlised card and blue card.  To finish off I added snow with my pearl pen, glitter, gems and a die cut poinsettia, tag and flourish.

Here's what I used.
Stamp: LOTV 'Sledging Buddies'
Paper/Card: First Edition 'Slient Night' Paper Pad, Papermill 'Pearlised' Card, Blue CS, Velvet CS (for markers)
Copics: Beak & Foot - Y11, Y17, Y15 / Hat & Sledge - R000, R11, R20, R22, R27, R32, R30 / Sky - B0000, B000, B00, B02, B05, 0 / Trees - G07 / Blades & Bear - C-1, C-2, C-3, C-5, C-7, 0
Dies: Spellbinders 'Poinsettia', Sizzix 'Banner2', Joanna Sheen Signature 'Lace Edge', Marrianne Design 'LR0120 - Flourish'
Other: Gems, Glitter, Distressing Ink 'Tumbled Glass', Wooden Snowflake from First Edition 'Slient Night' Embelishments
