The Christmas Trees were heat embossed in white then, I sponged each one from top to bottom with Tim Holtz distress inks in Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass, I love the beautiful pastel shades I get with this inks. The Joy die cut word is from a Penny Black die set called Love and Joy.
The little puppy was stamped onto a piece of Strathmore Multi Media 90lb. water color paper and fussy cut with my paper snips and the exacto knife and placed on the panel with dimensional foam adhesive, I'm getting better at using my exacto knife but, I found out the hard way that, for intricate and delicate images like the bow on the box top, it's better to reinforce the back with a couple of pieces of scotch tape, that way, when you go at it with the knife, the pieces cut better and wont rip off, this paper is let thick than the usual paper (Canson 140lbs.) I use but it's great if you want to fussy cut your images.
Here is the picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Cozy Cupfuls which has the most adorable images and the mitten is from my go to set for the inside of my cards, Merry Littles.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
