Step 1
Heather started out by creating a card base out of white card stock.  She then cut a piece of white card stock 1/2 inch smaller around.  She used a scallop heart spellbinders die and cut out two hearts.  She also embossed her smaller piece of cardstock and hearts with a polka dot embossing folder.  She colored the smaller heart with #725.  She tied the fushia ribbon around her card piece and held it in place with the Art Glitter Sticky tape.
  Step 2
Heather used a Martha Stewart Lace punch with a scrap of white cardstock.  She colored it with #606.
 Step 3
Using the Designer dries clear glue, Heather attached the punched pieces to the back of her card piece.  The glue works great to hold the punched piece to the embossed card piece!
Step 4
Next Heather used some Foam Tabs from Tombow to elevate her heart die cut!
Step 5
Heather used the Ultra Fine Tip Applicator and Designer Dries Clear glue to add some dots of glue to the embossed piece.  Please refer to photo below.
Step 6
Next Heather added the Fandango Hexis...she thinks they are SUPER FUN!!  What a great way to Brighten up your cards!  She then applied more of the Designer Dries clear glue to the heart.  Important to use the dries clear, because she used Fairy Dust glitter on the heart.
Step 7
Next Heather used the Tombow #195 marker to draw some leaves.  She cut them out and added a Tombow Foam tab to the back of each one.
Step 8
Heather added the leaves to her card, then used the Ultra Fine Tip and Designer Dries clear glue to outline and create a vein on the leaves.  Heather used #94 Key Lime glitter on the leaves.
Step 9
Heather used Tombow #025 to color her newsprint candee, and then added it to her heart shape (please refer to photo below).  She loves the added "pop" of color!
Step 9
Heather used another scrap piece of white cardstock, and cut the edges to resemble the edge of a ribbon.  She inked it and used the Tombow #555 marker to hand write "hello."
Once last look at Heather's Finished Card
Heather loves the Bright Crisp colors of the Tombow Markers!!  So cheerful!

Christmas Mitten Ornament
Heather used the TOMBOW Foam tabs to elevate her focal image.  She used #160 Rose Gold glitter on the edges of her mitten, #324 Country Red was used on the candy canes, red ribbon, tree ornaments, holly berries and red scallops. 
Heather outlined the tree with #295 Ensalada and  #300 Camel glitter was used for the tree trunk. The star and the tag on the front of Heather's mitten were outlined using  #196 Lion's Mane glitter!
