DT make

Hi Bloggers - hope your weekend has been a good one.
This is a make for JB Crafting Supplies using some lovely Crafter's Companion stamps, Adorables Cute Companions designed by Jayne Nestorenko & some lovely papers from Craftwork cards - The Magic of Christmas mini paper pad designed by Steph Davies.
I am really into making these box - type cards at the moment. They are really easy to make & fold flat so good for posting.
I made my card from white card - the details of how to make this card can be found on my  here.
I then stamped the images onto white card using black Archival - I wanted to make the signpost be behind the child & reindeer so made a mask of them, placed this over my image & then stamped the signpost.
I coloured the images using watercolour pencils. I cut the image out & decided which die cut to use for it, cut this out using my Grand Calibur. Adhered the image to the die cut.
Stamped the small letter image onto white card, coloured in & cut out. Made a small cut on the child's hand ( OO! that sounded bad!) and placed the letter into the cut so it looked as if the child is holding it.
Stamped the sentiments onto white card using black Archival ink & die cut them using a circle & tag die.
I chose a paper to match my image & colours, then covered the box card with it.
Arranged all my elements onto the card to see where they looked best then adhered using foam pads.
I went around various places with my waterfall Stickles, made a bow from some white ribbon & placed that on the box part of the card.
Placed some gems at various places, coloured a couple red with a Promarker, as on the paper the reindeer has red baubles hanging from his antlers.
Here are a couple of pics - to show the lovely detail on the stamps & how the card looks.

Hope you like it.
