Cosy and Warm

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a great weekend. My poor Labrador has been poorly again, so we have had lots of visits to the vets this last week, including a quick trip to the emergency vets yesterday. Keeping fingers crossed for a better week this week. Anyway whilst he has been poorly I have stayed in with him, so been able to get lots of card making done. 

The card I am sharing with you today is a card I have made using a Lili of the valley stamp, called Cosy and Warm I love LOTV stamps, they are fantastic quality and at a super price (and no I am not associated with them just a very happy customer of theirs) 

The card I made is 73/4 x 7 3/4 (making sure this one will fit in my 8x8 envelope)  I used hammered white card stock and red card stock from The Papermill Direct. 

I used promarker pens for the colouring, do craft digital designer for the paper which is holly and ivy leaves. For the die cut around the image I used spellbinders scalloped circle and normal circles. I also used the spellbinders A2 Curved Border set and Radiant Rectangles for the sentiment. The holly leaves where cut from the cricut machine and the large white and red roses are handmade. I started with three 5 petal flowers cut from the cricut for each flower and coloured and folded to create the rose. I then added additional flowers from my stash to give extra details. To finish the card I added a corner die, four red pearls and fake stitched around the layers in a white pen.
