One for the other half

Evening all, i have finally got round to making my other half a card.

Wish i had a body like this. lol. Image is from kenny k called mrs claus. Im not totally happy with my colouring on this one but it was the best out if the 4 i did. Due to the fact i colour with distress inks i printed this image onto my water colour paper, i had to leave it a couple of days to dry thoroughly. And even then when i used to much water the image run. I am getting a new printer for Christmas, and i cant wait to be able to print digi backgrounds and other digi images. Anyway back to the card. Poinsettia is from wild orchid crafts. The DP is from papermania a silent night collection. I added gold stickles to the dots to give it a bit of bling(took ages to do). Gems are from ebay.

Did you guess it would be another easel card. I have made and added a small envelope which will have a message inside. Red ribbon is from ebay. Bow is made using the bow easy(love it).

But wait there is more.

This is my first easel card with built in box. Yipee and i didn't follow a tutorial(very proud of myself) I added gold stickles around the edges for even more bling. The card measures 5"x5".

I have attached a "LOVE" charm to the handle to make it easier to pull the draw out. There is just one big draw.

I added gold stickles around the edges for even more bling.

What a super fun card. I love the stamp, (I wish I looked like that too, he he!) and I love the concept of the easel and box card. I'm sure you could put a little gift in there as well. So a card and a gift in one. Love where you hung the charm. Such a clever idea. Thanks so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog!!
xoxo, Christine
