One More Christmas Pocket Card

I've only a few Christmas cards left...(oh goody, I can hear you say) well, I like to post them here because it's a good way of checking up on what I've done and see the changes in my styles...well...I think they're getting better. I hope they are! Visiting other people blogs gives me loads of inspiration and challenges me to have a go at something different, although, there's loads of things I make that don't make it here!
This is the other Pocket Christmas card I mentioned about before. I made him (or her) at the same time as I made the other one, using my Stampin' Up papers and stickers (which I won, yay!!) the same red peel offs and some acetate along the bottom.
At one time I thought this was one of my 'missing cards' but luckily it had been filed away in one of my 'useful boxes' and when I went to remake it, there is was, grinning at me! (Phew!)
I'm glad I added the golden snowflake flower, (It's missing from the second picture) I think it fills in that gap at the top just right, shame I didn't take a closer picture of it!
I used a Woodware flower punch, but then put the flower in the palm of my hand and then sort of circled my finger round and round the centre of it until the flower curled up, then added the golden snowflake with a dollop of silicone glue and the red gem using my 2 in1 glue pen, a bit like a Quickie glue pen, when that was dry I fixed it to the card and added the fern leaves.
The inside of the card is near enough the same as the other pocket card only I didn't cut out a half circle in the 'pocket'. The inside snowflake was punched out using a very large Dovecraft punch, which I was very lucky to get for half price!I think the Quirky Forum Challenge starts up again tomorrow (Sunday) I'll give you a sneak peak of my DT make when I've made something! A clue?? Hmmm, well, I'm going to be using a colour I don't think I've ever used before!! And!!! I have a prize to give to one of my followers! Who?? I'll let you know tomorrow!
