So glad you stopped by today. Can you believe that we are less than two weeks away from the big day? I have no idea where 2016 went! Today, I'd like to share a card that I made, using one of the older Sparkle N Sprinkle sets Gothic Snow: Set 347 and another photo from my yard last winter. So much fun to use your own photos on a Christmas card!
This was a 5" x 7" print, as the stamps are pretty big - especially the sentiment. So I picked out the photo and stamped the snowmen on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. The snowmen were then fussy cut.
Next was to create their background so the glitters and the adhesives came out!
I used the Nuvo Fine Tip Glue Pen for the trees and the finer glitters. I started with Crystal Ice, then applied some Sparkling Snow, Green Iris and Lavender Iris to the various trees.
The snow people were colored with Copics and then their bodies were applied with Brushable Glue and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.
The little snow lady's string of lights were "lit up" with Nuvo Glitter Drops, Blue Lagoon, Emerald City and Sherbert Shimmer. While the drops were drying I moved on to the sentiment. From the same set, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on white glossy cardstock and then heat embossed with Black Detail. I hand cut it out into a fish tail banner and sponged on some Memento Summer Sky. This was attached with Foam Squares.
The snow people were added to the scene with Tear-ific Tape at the bottom and then popped up at the heads with Foam Squares. Dimensional Glue was then brushed on at their feet ....
... and Diamond Dust was then applied.
The card front was layered to black cardstock and then to a white card base to finish.
I'd like to join in the following Challenges with this card:
