Fabulous Festive Footwear

Christmas again!  This time a stamped card featuring a rather fabulous Christmas boot, not one of Santa's I don't think!  The stamp is from a House of Zandra set I bought at the SECC last year, I've used all the others in the set but not this one.  It's a pretty big image, it doesn't leave a lot of room for embellishment on a 5x7 card, as you can see.  I used my usual Promarkers for colouring, adding some pretty glitter to the fur trim at the top of the boot.
Unfortunately, as is so often the case with reds, the shading on the boot hasn't shown up very well in the photos and the die cut holly looks much darker than in real life too.

The striped card and darker red pearl card are both from Anna Marie Designs, the sentiment was stamped with a stamp from the same set as the image.
The holly was made with Sue Wilson dies and embellished with lots of red gems for berries, and the poinsettias were made with Nellie Snellen punches.
