Everything was die cut from white card stock then colored with Copic markers. I didn't want the Copic coloring to show through on the back of the hat, so a second hat was cut then adhered to it before being attached to the bag. The Poinsettia was shaped with a stylus/soft mat to give it dimension, and foam squares were placed between the layers for separation. Clear micro beads were glued to the center before it was adhered to the flower.
This project fits the following challenges: Totally Gorjuss, Traditional Christmas Colors; Drunken Stampers, Die Cuts and Whoopsidaisy Challenge, Anything But a Card.

This next card uses the new Snowflake Cutting Plate. Talk about a quick and easy background for holiday cards! The sentiment panel was created with the Chalkboard Technique. I found a new ink to use with this technique, and it worked amazingly! The sentiment and swirl from Chalkboard Elements was stamped with Memento VersaMagic Cloud White then set it aside to dry. While it dried, I broke out my new Bow-it-All and made that awesome bow! By the time the bow was finished, the sentiment was dry, so I inked up my finger and rubbed the edges of the die cut. A trio of red rhinestones complete the card.
