Dashing Through the Snow




Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I was fighting a sinus infection and I think I finally won :)

My card today uses one of my favorite stamps by Whiff of Joy. I stamped the image with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with copics. I then stamped the image again for the extra reindeer, colored him with copics, and cut him out. I added stickles everywhere (ya know I love my stickles :) ) and I also added pearls to Charlotte's jacket. I layered the image panel onto SU's Handsome Hunter followed by Bravo Burgundy followed by Night of Navy. I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls to each corner.

I next created my card base (which measures 5x7) out of SU's Handsome Hunter. I layered Bravo Burgundy on top of that followed by Night of Navy and then my design paper from K&Co. I used some red ribbon from Michael's across the card and tied a bow. I then mounted my image panel to the card base using dimensionals. I used my new tag trio nestabilities to cut out the tag and then I stamped my sentiment, which is a clear $1 Studio G stamp. I then placed pearls on each side of the tag.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)
