Christmas Arrangement



 Did you enjoy Nina's First Recipe Blog Hop?  There sure were lots of  great holiday recipes.  What did you think of all Nina's beautiful images showcased by the Designers?  These are now available in her  new Paper Cupcakes Store.  The winners of those who participated in the TMITA Recipe Blog Hop will be announced Saturday, December 19. 

It is Magical Monday again which means Nina has a new Free digital image for you.  It is "Christmas Arrangement".  As a designer, it was my turn to host the challenge.  I thought since this beautiful image has Christmas ornaments in the design that we should "Glitz It Up".  Please use either glitter and/or Stickles on your card.

Now for my card.  The design was stamped using Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. Extra fine Gold Glitter was added to the Christmas ornaments and the berries in the flower arrangement. I stamped the design the second time and cut out the bow and large flower and popped them up with dimensionals. A little bit of red glitter was added to the ribbon.   A piece of quilted designer paper was layered on red card stock and a bottom border created with a MS punch.  The image was cut out with Nestabilities and edged with a gold leaf metallic marker then popped up with dimensionals.  Cuttlebug corners were added to the top and a piece of gold and white braid added below the design.

Remember, Nina's new Paper Cupcake store is now open.  Be sure you go over to check it out.  Also,  go to TMITA blog to download your free digital image.  Hope you will participate with us in this challenge.
