Card Recipe:
Image - Wee Holly
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Cozy Little Christmas by The Paper Studio
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Holly Leaves - Hobby Lobby
Flowers - Michaels
Border Punch (inside) - Fiskars
Glitter - Mica Flakes by Martha Stewart





For a little sparkle and a little snowy effect I added Mica Flakes to the edge of the die cut mat, you have to sort of "squish" them on with your fingers so they go just where you want them but I like the effect as a change from regular glitter.
I absolutely adored coloring Wee Holly in the traditional red and green of Christmas but I think she would also look cute in blues and purples, umm maybe I'll have to give it a go?....
Be back tomorrow for another Christmas card and stay safe!
Katie
