I made this card to give to my 12yo daughter for Christmas.
The image is an old one from Stampendous and is retired. I stamped the image onto 140lb watercolour paper using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and coloured it with Faber-Castell watercolour pencils using a #2 round paintbrush.
I added dots of white acrylic paint onto the bear's scarf using a very fine stylus as well and I painted a fine white line down the centre of the candy cane for a highlight using a Liner brush. I lightly chalked around the image with Kaisercraft blue chalk and added snow using Stampendous Cotton White Fun Flock mixed with fine Crystalina glitter - which was also used to add fuzz to the hat. I popped the image panel up on 2mm dimensionals.
The green dry embossing is an embossing folder by Crafts Too - Christmas Holly Frame. I layered the panel onto some red cardstock and trimmed the layers to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools. I added the red reindeer ribbon from my stash then attached the panel to a white cardstock base.
The sentiment is by Elzybells (sadly no longer in business but Penny Black has reissued some images over the past few years) - and was diecut using a Cuttlebug Tiny Tags die. I added a tiny Couture Creations red rhinestone at each end of the sentiment panel. I tied the tag on using Doodlebug Ladybug twine and added a dimensional to hold the tag firmly to the cardstock. I added Fray Stop to the cut ends of the twine to stop it from fraying/unravelling.
Lastly, I adhered the glittery sparkly snowflake from my stash using Crafter's Pick Incredibly Tacky glue.
