Christmas easel card

May I present to you my second easel card! I apologize for the quality of the photos, but I was anxious to get her posted.

I used the Foxy stamp from Sugar Nellie and colored her with my Copics. I decided to use traditional Christmas colors this time around -- something about that combo of green and red makes my heart happy.

The dps came from a Paper Wishes Christmas card kit. I don't recall where I got the stickers, but you can probably tell that I didn't think through the placement of one sticker. Oh well. That's why I call my blog Crafty by Accident.

The sentiment on the inside is actually a cardstock sticker that I mounted on a couple additional pieces of cardstock. I then adhered the sentiment to the card using a dimensional adhesive.

I am entering this card into the following contest:

For my great-aunt

I made this card for my great-aunt's 90th birthday. I made the flower using a stencil, Dreamweaver embossing paste and Pearl-Ex pigment powders. The jewels came from Michael's, and the cardstock from my stash. It is a pretty simple card to make, but you have to give the stenciled image time to dry.
