The image, I stamped from a wooden block stamp, which I then coloured using copics and promarker pens. I added glitter to the image using a glue pen to create snow and edged it using Brilliance, pearlescent thyme ink.
To my blank card, I added a spotty red backing. I then added two stripes of green and red glitter down two edges. I added two strips of paper, stripy and holly, backed with green card. I also backed the image with red then green card. I took the layout of the card from the '52 Christmas Card Throwdown' sketch challenge.
I added a sentiment with a glittery red brad, raised in the bottom right hand corner. To finish I made 8 snowflakes to use as embellishments.
To make the snowflakes, I cut 4 large and 4 small from white card using Xcut silhouette punches. I then inked them up using Brilliance, red rocket gold/pearlescent ivy/pearlescent thyme and Versamagic, red brick. I added glitter to the spots on the snowflakes and fixed them together using green and red glittery brads. I used silicone glue to attach these to my card.
