'Mimi Dear' Card by Sue K

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue K has created a super cute card to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.


Stamp the Mimi image twice onto Xpress it blending card stock, colour one with copic markers and the other cut out using the 3rd largest die.

The colours Sue has used are:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R01
Hair: E50, E51, E21, E53, E55
Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Reds: R22, R24, R27, R29
Antlers: E31, E33, E35

Once the image has been coloured, cut it out.  Add some dimensional magic to the nose and hearts, some stickles Xmas red to the ribbon, allow to dry.
Take the 2nd image, take a multi liner (0.5mm) and finish off the ends of the ground, mask off the bottom piece.
Airbrush the background with B91, B93 & B95. 
Take colourless blending pen (0) and remove the colour from the snow dots, stars and the antlers.  Colour the antlers with E33, the stars with Y13, Y15 & Y17 and add some Stickles to the snow dots.
Remove the mask, cover the white at the bottom with glue from the glue stick, cover with glitter and allow to dry.
Cut a decorative label 8 from Xpress it blending cardstock and ½ from the blue gingham.  Attach the blue to the white with a tape runner, slightly bend the un stuck edges of the blue.
Cut 2 fishtail flags from a contrasting paper and another 2 smaller ones from Xpress it blending cardstock.
Cut the larger ones in ½, discard the square end, attach to the card front with the tape runner.
Cut the smaller fishtail flags in ½, attach with tape and a foam dot.
Attach the trimmed ‘Mimi’ on to the airbrushed die cut with glue, attach the label to the card front with double sided foam tape.
Cut a medium and small snowflake from Xpress it blending cardstock, cover the larger one with glue, sprinkle with glitter.
When dry, attach the snowflake with a foam dot, the smaller one in the centre with a foam dot also.
Attach the card front to a card base cut from smooth white cardstock using the 2nd largest labels 8 die.
Lastly finish off with some rhinestones.
