Stella's Christmas Shoes

I thought that this was a good opportunity to use my Stella Christmas image for a Bugaboo SSS #307

So here is my Christmas creation:
I took an A5 card blank and folded the front to create an Easel card. Patterned glitter paper of stripes of trees was measured to match the card size, and then adhered to the front. A scalloped circle was die-cut from gold mirri card and the image printed and cut into a circle, coloured with promarkers, and mounted on the gold circle. This was adhered and cut to match the sketch. To the base of the card some spotty christmas paper was used as the bottom layer, with the sentiment layered onto gold card, edged with gold ink and then mounted using 3D foam pads, to hold the top of the card in place when opened. Finally two baubles were recycled from old Christmas cards. The smaller one was inked with a red-gold to even the colour as it was slightly scratched when being removed from the Christmas card.
This is to be entered into the following challenges:
open-minded crafting #34 Recycle something
Jingle Belles Rock Recycle, reuse or upcycle
abc christmas G is for Glitter
Digi Chooseday Use a Die
Crafty Calendar Add a sentiment

catch the bug Recycle
completely Christmas #58 Add some gold
crafty hazelnuts 224 Add some texture
613 Avenue Create #119 Create Your Own challenge (Easel, Christmas, Gold/metallic)

And here is my recent cross stitched make - it was a free kit in a magazine back in 2006/7, so I thought it was about time I actually stitched it up. It only took 2.5 hours :).

Thank you for looking.
