Santa Girl

This is my second post for today so be sure to check out my Thanksgiving card on the post below.   

I ordered the Winter Kit from CC Designs and used the Santa Emma, presents and a sentiment from the set (although I'm not sure of the proper names of these yet).   

I tried to add a bunch of shimmer/bling to this card. I embossed the white panel with the Snowflakes folder and then painted the raised snowflakes with Shimmerz.  The bows on the presents are covered in stickles and the fur trim on her outfit and hat are done with Flower Soft in Polar White and then covered in stickles.  The belt buckle is colored with a metallic silver pen.  The top snowflake and rhinestone were colored my RV23 copic to match the pink paper and the little rhinestones used on the sentiment. 

Here is a close up to try and catch some of the shimmer on this card:

I think this card may go to one of my daughter's this year.

Gorgeously sweet card Jodi. Love the colours, papers and the super cute image. I think on this occassion we can include the bows on the pressies as ribbon as you have made them stand out and look so real with the lush shimmer work.
