I chose to use a December release: Pure Innocence - Merry KISSmas for my card. These little Pure Innocence girls have just stolen my heart! Aren't they the cutest things!? After stamping the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored it with Copic markers and cut/embossed it with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. Before taking it out of the die, I colored the background a little around the die, leaving a bit of a white border, as well. For my large snowflake, I cut it out twice with a Sizzix die--once with Soft Sky and once with some chipboard for strength. Then I glued them together and covered them with Martha Stewart Glitter. The little girl's clothes and the snowman's hat and scarf are paper pieced and I added some Liquid Applique to the "fur". The snowman's buttons are black baby braddies and I added some Swarovski clear crystals to the mistletoe and (it's hard to see) a tiny one to dot the "i" on the sentiment tag. A snowflake border, a bow with a button and a small snowflake tied on finish it off. I love how it turned out.
As always, I appreciate you stopping by!
