This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.
I've added faux stitching to border the layered Robin's Nest "Blue Stars on Red" patterned glitter paper and Bazzill cardstock that form my easel card. A Spellbinders Nestabilities Star Circles die and Standard Circles Small die shape my image.
As inspired by Day 8 of 2009's Tim's Tags of Christmas, I stamped and heat embossed a Stampers Anonymous Festive Sounds lamp post onto grungeboard then fussy cut around it. I die cut chipboard using Sizzix Circles #2 then wrapped EK Success Adornments Green fun fibers around it to create my wreath. A strip of 1/8" raspberry-toned ribbon adorns my wreath to repeat the pattern in Elisabeth's image. A Darice Favor gold Bell, attached with jumprings, hangs from the double ribbon bow.
Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles adorn the collar of my QuicKutz cat die cut. Size 20 black cotton thread adds lifelike cat's whiskers. A Hero Arts Clear Design "December" set provided a decorative sentiment. McGill pine branch punches and Punch Bunch holly leaves add a bit of greenery to my clusters of Recollections mulberry paper mini roses.
This view of the base of my easel card shows a stamped sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Delightful Dozen set over Inkadinkado swirls from their Warm Holiday Wishes set in Adirondack Lights Cloudy Blue ink.
