Christmas With Alex

I have a new card for C Thru the Woods Clear Stamps.
I used the large Alex from the
Boys in the Woods Series
 this time with a Christmas theme.

I stamped Alex on white card stock and colored him with spectrum noir
markers. He was then fussy cut and I replaced his hat with a present which was part of a
sticker sheet I had in my stash. I created a fireplace
which was also colored with spectrum noir and smudged with black ink.
I punched greenery for the fireplace mantel with a Martha Stewart pine
fronds punch and added a dazzles border on top of the greenery.
The wreath was done with a Stampabliites stamp called Evergreen Wreath 
and also colored with spectrum noir and a gold gel pen. 
The wall behind the fireplace was created with a striped paper from a
DCWV paper stack called the Christmas Combo
and embossed card stock.
I added some K&Company corner treatments and 
used dazzles suckers for the sentiment.
I used some tiny gems throughout to finish.
If you like what I did maybe you should check out
