I had coloured this fun image Busted by Stitchy Stamps in with Promarkers an Flexmarkers in traditional Christmas colours to match the paper pack I had chosen from Panda Bear Designs called Christmas Traditions. I had initially thought about doing an easel card but opted to make an octagonal shaped card as I have not made one of those before and thought the geometric shape would work with the checked paper and the striped. The striped paper was to go along the left hand side of the card but whilst playing with positioning decided it looked so much stronger the way I have placed it.
The image has been cut using a Nestabilities labels 25 die and I used a dry inkpad to distress the outside edges. The sentiment is a free digi from Bird’s Cards. I have used the dies from the new Petite Labels 1 D-Lites dies to cut the mat and sentiment and used the inside of the die to create a glittery red gel pen frame around the wording.
Finally I added some Prima glittery fabric poinsettia flowers secured with posh brads from American Crafts. Both these items have been coveted in my stash for a long time and I am proud of myself for actually using them J
