Hello there to my crafty peeps! I wanted to share with everyone a card that I have been working on for a few days here and there. It’s a bright and cheery card that I’m in love with.
I used the Paper Smooches Freezy Fellas stamp set for the snowy couple. It was so much fun cutting out all of the accessories that brought the snowmen to life. I colored them with Copic markers and added a subtle glittery shine with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. I have used that pen so much since I got it this past summer at the Scrapbook Expo.. I love it! For the sentiment and background I used my new Lawn Fawn set called Joy to the Woods. It has the best birch tree stamps… They are so versatile.
I tried out a layering technique with vellum that I have seen on quite a few crafty blogs. I believe I first saw it on Nichol Magourik’s blog. Anyway, I stamped out the trees on my white cardstock base and colored them with Copics. I then layered a clear vellum with white polka dots to imitate snow fall. Last but not least, I layered on a few more trees and snowy hills on top of the vellum. The result? A winter wonderland scene with lots of added depth and interest.
