Dexter with presents

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well. I'm here to share a Christmas card I've made using a lovely digital stamp from Pollycraft. He really is a little sweetie. I've cased one of my earlier creations, which you can see in full here.

I've coloured with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust to his body and hat. The papers are from my stash and cut using a Spellbinder die. The ribbon is an Anita's Festive one and the snowflake has been in my stash for years, I think it came with a magazine, I've added a red gem to the centre. The main backing paper has been cut with a deckle edge and all edges have been inked with Color Box pigment brush pad in Evergreen. I've also stamped a Christmas wishes sentiment (Daisy and Dandelion).
