Hi! I am busy working on making my Christmas cards, and I was so excited to get to play with one of ching-chou kuik's Christmas images. Plate 60 has four absolutely stunning holiday images and I can't wait to make each one into a card (they can each be purchased individually, too).
The holly in this image reminded me of some older Bo Bunny paper that I had, so I did my best to color the image so the background would look like an extension of the DP (or the DP would look like an extension of the background of the image.) I colored the image with Copic markers and added some stickles and a glitter pen for sparkle. I used the Martha Stewart icicle punch on clear card stock, then covered that with tinsel glitter and layered it under the ribbon.
