To a Very Special Sister

This is the Christmas card I made for my sister - I can post it now as she doesn't read my blog!

I covered the front of the card blank with dark red holly paper, leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut the precoloured image with a stitched rectangle die, leaving enough room at the bottom of the image for the sentiment.  I placed the die cut topper into my MISTI so I could line up the two sentiment stamps before stamping them in red ink.  The topper was then attached to the left side of the card.  I die cut the heart from both dark grey mirri and dark grey pearlescent card , before attaching the mirri outline and pearlescent centre to the lower corner of the card.  To finish I highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley ''Tis the Season' Art Pad
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics' and Creative Expressions 'From the Heart - Female Relations' dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Happy Birthday All' stamps
     Versafine Crimson Red ink
     Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper
     Snippets of dark grey mirri and dark grey pearlescent card
     Wink of Stella

I am entering the following challenges:

     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Something Beginning with 'H' (I've used a heart)
