Commissioned Christmas Card


I was asked to make an extra special Christmas card for a lady's nan.  I decided to use a decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kincade CD.  Yes it took a while to cut out but it certainly made it very effective.  I decided to do some basic matting and layering and leave the image as the main focal point.  I have highlighted areas with Stickles glitter glue for some sparkle.  The card is then finished off with a gorgeous flower poinsettia, ribbon, gems, sentiment off the computer, insert from Imagination and some peel-offs.

This card fits the following challenges:
