This photo shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image. I set this lovely fairy toward the side of my cut rectangle so I'd have plenty of room to add a sentiment and some embellishments. This magnificent stamped sentiment is an oldie from Art Gone Wild! A QuicKutz manger and north star die cuts provide divine accents. A bit of Diamond Stickles covers her wings and the poinsettia she's holding. You can find out the basics of how I make my punched poinsettias here.
I've used my Sizzix Big Shot Pro and the Candy-Shaped Box Pro die to die cut Little Yellow Bicycle's Christmas Magic paper. Holiday ribbons, tied in bows, hold my candy box tight but will make it easy to open and tie again. A Spellbinders' Fleur De Lis Rectangle frames my image.
It all came together pretty easily. Memory Box holly vines add a very nice over the edge flourish. Here's a view of my completed Sizzix Big Shot Pro Candy-Shaped Box showcasing Sara Burrier's Poinsettia . . .
