Holly by WeeStamps

Hello everybody!!

My card in this post was made for the Israeli challenge blog "Going Out of Lines". Our theme for the current challenge is "Winter", and "Holly" by Wee stamps is better than anything when talking about this season.

שלום לקרואות והמבקרות היקרות!

היום אנחנו מתחילות אתגר חדש בבלוג "יוצאות מהקווים". היינו רוצות לראות עבודות ויצירות בהשראת חורף. אני הכנתי כרטיס עם חותמת דיגיטלית שניתנת לרכישה והורדה מיידית כאן.

The image is colored with Copic markers:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000
Hair: E53, E55, E57, E59
Reds: R39, R37, R35, R32
Greens: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91
Yellows: YR24, YR21, YR30
Snow: W3, W1, W0

The card shape is not my idea, but I saw this kind of fold here, loved it and wanted to try and make a similar card.

When completely unfolded, the card looks like this:

And from the top:

The small tag on the top pf the card may be pulled out:
