Recipe  

Materials

1 /2 sheet coredinations red card
1 sheet bazzil kraft card
1/2 sheet pretty paper (I used magnolia christmas )
Printed image - Snow Girl from the Besties White Christmas collection
Pearls
Greeting
Ribbon
tea dye distress ink

Tools
magnolia cute corner die
magnolia tags die
la la land banner die
Copics


To make this card I used a square card as a base and layered card and paper .5 cm smaller each time to  make the correct layers of card then paper.
I layered a strip of layered paper across the centre of the card and affixed a ribbon over that.  I used tea dye distress ink to tint the craft card and the edges of my image.  I coloured a gold peel off greeting with my copic pen e29  and the pearls with the same pen to get a nice vintage sort of effect 

Printed out the image on Xpress blending card and coloured with my copics then layered onto red and kraft card and affixed to the card.

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, rv10  r21
Jacket/Skirt/Boots r24, 27,29
Hat/Fur/Blouse e50, 51, 53, 55
Hair - e25, 27, 29
Eyes - e15, 17
