Christmas Girl

Happy Thursday everyone.  Did you all make it through the Holidays ok?  I know my Christmas was Wonderful!!  I love having my children all together at home.  Having the grandchildren there too is a fabulous bonus!!   Love them to pieces.   
Well today is my day to post for Jen's Digi stamps. I just love her stamps, so so cute :)  Today, even though it is not Christmas and it has passed us by, I still wanted to do a Holiday image, so I chose "Christmas Girl".  You can purchase her here.  I hate to see the Holidays end.

I used pink Core'dinations card stock for the base, for this Center Step card.  I started with a 5 and 1/2 by 11 card base.   Measured one inch in on both sides of the card and then cut from the one inch mark to the 6 and 1/2 inch mark..... Scored at 5 and 1/2 inches in between the cut lines and then scored at 1" and 2" and then 6 and 1/2".  Mountain valley fold and there is your center step card.
You can see the tutorial at SplitCoast Stampers here.

I used the red Stickles for her ear rings.

(love these flowers)

( I used the stickles here on the hearts and berries)

Supplies used:
Core'dinations card stock
Christmas patterned paper from stash
Letraset Promarkers
Stampin Up red. marker

I hope you like todays' card, I am happy with how it came out.  I still need a lot of practice with the markers, but I am having fun trying.
