I printed the image out 3 times and on the base layer coloured in using Graph' it pens, white pearlescent chalk on her face with a dusting over her hat, gloves , scarf and silver gel pen to highlight round the edges then pale blue pearlescent chalk on the background. Second image I cut the snow lady's body out and stuck to a sheet of double side sticky paper. Trimmed round the edges and then peeled the other side of sheet off and covered with micro beads. The third image I coloured in the fairy lights (on the body) and the scarf and then cut these out and added on top of the micro beaded body. You do get a slight 3d effect. Backing paper is from the Back to Basics Christmas pack that I used on the card from yesterday. The plain navy is two sided pearl paper (Anna Marie Designs) and has a lovely sheen to it. I layered these up and then added the image on top. Edge on blue and surrounding edge on image have faux stitching in the silver gel pen.
Snowflakes and the picot edging are peel offs by Woodware. I got slightly carried away sticking them round the image and then realised I had no room to add a sentiment but I think everyone can see it is a Christmas card!!
