613 Avenue Create ..Rick St .Dennis Christmas Card

I was absolutely delighted to be colouring a Rick St.Dennis image again..This beautiful image has been coloured using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then cut it out using the Tattered Lave notched squares..It was mounted then onto Gold card ..Yes! gold has come out Christmas cards just have to have the shimmer.. The papers I chose are from the Tonic Christmas paper pads ,also mounted onto gold. The main image I kept on a white background as there was going to be a lot going on in this card so I did not want the image to get lost...For.. directly behind the image I used a piece of foiled craft card from Kanban it was from a Birthday selection of foiled craft cards I brought but as it had stars on it I just knew it would look perfect..I used the larger of the notched squares to cut this out and the gold matting and glued down with 3D glue gel to add a bit off depth.The stars/snowflakes are from Spellbinders and are called Holiday Greetings 4 and look exquisite ..I finished these with some beautiful gems that are iridescent with a gold snowflake on them,and to finish I added a sentiment that was matted onto gold card,this was in the back of the Paper pad...This card looks nice on here but on the shelf it just wows ,because to get good pictures you need lighting so bright it sometimes looses a little of the card ..It is beautiful Looks really rich and one of my favourites so far that I have done for Christmas ..but this is only about number three or four lets wait and see lol!..Thank you for popping by  :)xx
