Cheers to you!
Good morning everyone! It's going to be a beautiful day here in SW Ontario. A great way to end my 3 days of vacation, back to work tomorrow :(. But as I had hoped I did accomplish what I had set out to do for my 3 days off. I completed one card order (13 cards), and I have 2 more birthday cards to make for my other friend who ordered a total of 20 cards. I hope to get those 2 cards done today. Then I just need to work on cards for me to send and for my sale basket at work.
My card today features an Art Impression image. I just love these images, I mean who doesn't right? For the last couple of years I have always bought at least one of their holiday images, and they always seem to be a big hit!
After stamping the image I coloured using copics. I used an MFT stitched rectangle to cut her out.
I needed it a bit narrower, so I placed the image back into the die but in about 1/2" and then ran it through my big shot. I have done this many times, its a great way to stretch your dies, without having to buy more.
After this was put together, I added some white flock to her coat trim and glitter to the wine and holly.
The sentiment was stamped using black versafine, cut out using sb circle die, trimmed it with gold krylon pen, then adhered it to a small scallop circle. I added a couple of enamel dots and Voila! I made 4 of these, but they are already gone, so need to make a couple of more.
