Christmas Present

Another Christmas card today, made with some old Bo Bunny magazine freebie papers and stamps, to which I've added some kraft card and gold mirri.  I inked all the edges of the layers with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, added a border of gold glitter to the red mat with a Quickie glue pen and some Diamond Sparkles glitter in Desert Sand, and outlined the mustard mat with dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Buttermilk.  The fishtail banners were cut with Sue Wilson dies which pierce holes in a border along the edges, if you look reeaally closely you can just about make them out on the patterned paper.
 The parcel was die cut with a Marianne die; it's actually meant to be a box of chocolates, but I think it works rather well, cut from festive paper, as a Christmas present!  The ribbon a bow were cut from a mustard coloured paper, which I brushed over with clear Wink of Stella, then coated with Glossy Accents, for lovely, shiny, ribbon.
To embellish, I added a gem to the centre of the bow, a sprinkling of pearls, and sentiment stamped with the freebie Bo Bunny stamp set that came with the papers.
