Magical Christmas

   I began by forming an easel card base from shimmery green card.
   The digi image called 'Snitch with holly and wild rose' is from Stamping Dragon Designs and is being offered for their July facebook colouring challenge. I coloured it using Promarkers. I then brushed distress ink around the edges and added flowersoft to the centre of the flowers and matted it onto red core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to the front fold of the easel.
   The base of the easel is covered with designer paper from Kaisercraft  which came from an old magazine. I attached red peel offs to the front edge of this and filled in the open red stars with green peel off stars. The easel stop is made from a combination of Spellbinder dies. The left hand part is made up of red core'dination cardstock and green mirri card using the poinsettia set of dies. The right hand part was made using one of the holiday tags. The yellow circle from the waste of this was used as the centre of the poinsettia. The sentiment on the tag was stamped using one of the new vintage Christmas sentimentals stamps from Crafter's Companion. Finally I added a bow to the tag.
