Hello friends! I hope you’re having a great week so far! I’m trying to enjoy the warmer temps while I still am able to before it starts getting too cold out! I wish I wasn’t feeling achy either, so hopefully that will improve too!
Today starts a new challenge for Cute Card Thursday and this week is our monthly “Anything Goes” challenge! We’re sponsored by Whimsy Stamps and of course you know I’m using one of those images for my card today:
How sweet is this one! This digital stamp is by Sylvia Zet called Wintry Fairy from Whimsy Stamps. Really love coloring up her sweet images!
For the background white layer, it’s hard to see, but I have used a snowfall embossing folder over it. I also took a couple of the Whimsy Stamps Christmas Fun digital papers, printed them out and cut some sections for my card layout. I layered them with some brushed gold cardstock and put them over the white embossed layer. The piece at the bottom also has some gold ribbon wrapped around it that I added before attaching to the white layer. These layers were mounted over a piece of red 5″ square top folding card base.
I also white heat embossed the sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Holiday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set and then cut it out with the Whimsy Stamps Quick Strips die set. I cut it twice so that I could get the length that I wanted and then glued it over the bottom of the layered image panel.
I then added a gold ribbon bow with some gold thread nested underneath a snowflake button that I covered with a rhinestone. I also attached some white poinsettia flowers from my stash.
Here’s a closer view of the image and how I’ve got her colored up with Copics.
I used a white gel pen for the bird’s cheeks and the berries as well as places on her coat. You can see that I also took a gold gel pen and added details to her coat as well as her wings. I then covered her wings and the flowers in her hair with a glitter brush pen.
For the snow t the bottom, I took a glue pen and loose clear glitter over top.
I used a square die cut to cut her out with and layered onto a piece of brushed gold cardstock and then another layer of red cardstock that was cut with a scallop square die.
I hope that you have enjoyed my card today! It’s always great to get another Christmas card done before the rush gets going! LOL!
