First Christmas card

of the year....and it took ages.
I am beginning to make samples for the girls in the card class I run in Pilar de la Horradada. This is a middle step card....again in golds which I am liking more and more.

I followed the instructions from a well known card magazine...only to discover they weren't quite accurate. Well, not according to my limited understanding. The instructions said to score all the lines so the middle step had score lines along the middle of it. I therefore had to make another card but as I was on a roll I made 2 so that I have a template for the card class. I really enjoyed making this card and hope it shows.

Card supplies:
Image for internet.
Backing paper Papermania, designed by Tina Higgins.
Glitter strip/ribbon- Papermania.
Medallion cut using sissix and Big Shot.
Inked edges with Studio G.
Half pearls from Papercellar, bling from Poundland all coloured with Sharpie pens.
Card, snowflakes and poinsettia from stash.
Stickles glitter around image and on flower.
