Boy with Lantern

This evening is just a quick card I made today.  I have used Morehead die cut decoupage and made a different shaped card (don't know what to call it!  I saw one like this at a show done smaller but have made this by using an A4 card and scored at 6½ cm, 9½ cm, 14½ cm and 19½ cm.

I have taken gold mirri card and cream pearlescent card and matted and layered onto the widest part of the card and punched 3 snowflakes and using Pinflair adhered them to the top of the card on the right hand corner.  The second fold I have attached a strip of cream pearlescent and then attached a strip of gold, brown and cream mirri which has Season's Greetings running through the middle.  Using double sided tape I have put a strip down the cream card and using Martha Stewarts glitters in brownstone added this which sparkles (the photograph unfortunately doesn't do this justice)  For the front of the card fold I have again added a strip of gold, brown and cream mirri.  Matted and layered gold mirri with backing paper inf creams and beiges.  I have decoupaged the Moorhead little boy with lantern.  Added 4 card candy from my stash and glittered these using Martha Stewart glitter in Brownstone.  I have placed holly peel offs in the 2 corners and coloured them in using my Sakura glitter pens, which I have also used to highlight the flame and his coat buttons.  Using Woodware Fluffy Stuff I have added this to his hat, top of lantern, scarf and underneath his feet and before heating with heat gun added some Cosmic Shimmer Iced Crystal.

Thank you for stopping by today
