I decided to use both images that we had available: Holiday Topiary and Candy Canes with Bow. When I was resizing the topiary image in Pages, I added the candy canes on to the pot and then printed on X-Press It Blending card. I have then coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • holly - G14, G05, G07, G28
  • berries - R27, R59, R89, clear Wink of Stella
  • trunk - E35, E37, E39
  • red bow - R24, R27, R59
  • pot - E11, E13, E15, E18, YR02
  • red of candy canes - R24, R27, R59
  • white of candy canes - C0, C1
  • background - BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
  • grounding/snow - B000, B91, BV20
  • outline - BV25
I trimmed the image with my paper cutter and then adhered it to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have drawn some inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her awesomMonthly Classes and Bonus Classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring before and after trimming - you may be able to see some sparkle on the berries on the before photo:

Here is another photo of the completed card:
