We are getting there - another Christmas card done. Using a stamp from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) Christmas foliage set I stamp the ivy trail onto a square white card and then stamped it a second time on a strip of card. I coloured both using Promarkers. I cut a larger square and coloured the edges with one of the Promaker pens I had used to colour the leaves. I then matted and layered the white stamped square onto this then onto another square of white card. I cut out the leaves from the second coloured image and decoupaged them onto the square card. I added a few dots of white Liquid Pearls to form ivy berries.
Using the same Promarker pen I coloured a strip of white ribbon and added this as a bow to the base of the ivy trail.
The prayer is from the same set of stamps and I matted this onto card, again coloured using the Promarker pen and attached it using glue gel. Finally I cut a ivy motif using a Marianne creatables die, coloured it using the Promaker pen and attached it to the top corner of the card.
