Hi everyone, I'm back today with another Christmas card to share. I love doing the pretty & elegant cards, but sometimes it's always fun to do those whimsical ones as well. You need a variety - right?
So when I saw these adorable images from Art Impression, I knew I needed them. I bought four of their whimsical images (ordered them through my local stamp store - The Paper Pickle - for all you local folks, if you see something online and you just have to have it, let Kim know and she will be more than happy to order them in for you - she is the best!).
So this cute guy is called Warm your Heart set.
I started by stamping the image on 110lb cougar white c/s, using black memento. I used copic markers to colour the image - sorry did not keep track of the colours, but there was lots!
I then layered this onto a piece of red pattern paper, then onto some kraft. The stripe designer paper is from Basic Grey - aspen frost, and the red polka dot is from Basic Grey as well, but it was a scrap piece. Card base is soft sky.
To finish this I stitched around the image. I cut 2 snowflakes from my Simon Says snowflake dies, one from soft sky and one from vellum. I added lots of glitter to both. The soft sky snowflake is glued down behind my image and the the vellum was added to the top of the image in the corner and added a red button on the center. White flock was added to the penguins had, and glossy accents to the berries, and basically glitter on everything else.
Isn't he cute?!
