Kit & Clowder Christmas Swap

It's the weekend before Christmas and it's going to be a busy one for me.
I have another Christmas card that was sent to Australia to show, but not a snowflake in sight today.
One of the Facebook groups I belong to held a Christmas swap this month and my partner lives in Australia. This is the card I made for her.

All the layers are Heartfelt Creations and Papermania papers matted onto Kraft card. I tattered the edges and used Antique Linen Distress Ink before arranging them so they would fit in an 8"x 8" envelope. I then added a strip of lace.

The image is one of my favourites. It's Conie Fong's Angel of Christmas Stars. I coloured her with my Copics before cutting her out and mounting her on gold card.

The poinsettias and ferns were made with Marianne dies. I coloured the ferns with Copics and added DecoArt Snow Writer to the flowers.
The bow is seam binding that I coloured with Copics before tying up with a piece of string. I finished the card with a few gold gems.

This is the wonderful card I received in return from my swap partner. Thank you Melinda, it's gorgeous.
Have a good weekend everyone.
