Fluffles Holiday Magic

I've made another Christmas card!  The week-long Christmas in July event at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge Blog has really inspired me!   I wish I had some Bugaboo Christmas images, but unfortunately I don't, so I'm using what I have.  I stamped the Fluffles image in black and coloured with watercolour markers, added red and green Stickles to the ornaments, layered with green and red cardstock, and attached to card.  I stamped the sentiment in black, die-cut into an oval, layered with a green oval, and attached to card.  Then I added the ribbon and bow.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Sketch:  Tuesday Morning Sketches #207 (see below)
  • Stamps:  Fluffles the Cat (Stampendous), sentiment (All Night Media)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Watercolour Markers:  Tombow
  • Watercolour Paper:  Canson
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Cutting Dies:  Nellie's Multifames - Squares and Ovals
  • Glitter Glue:  Stickles Xmas Red and Lime Green
  • Ribbon and Gems:  Dollarama
