We are cruisin' right along this morning. I have made it to card #4 already. Not bad. It's only been 15 minutes.
I did something a little different for this challenge. Since we are coming up on the Valentine's season, I decided to make this a love card, but used a winter image.
This cute little guy is from A Day for Daisies. I colored him in with my colored pencils and OMS. I cut out the image using my Nestabilities. I did use some Glitter Gel Pen on his hat for some sparkle. We all love the bling right? I began with a SU Whisper White card base cut to a 5" square card. I added a strip of American Crafts DP that has been punched with my Fiskar's border punch. I matted the image on the same DP then a Lacy Circle Large die cut.
To make the snowflakes match and not be washed out on the white card base, I used some snowflake die cuts that my precious friend Jan sent me. I took my Memento Lady Bug ink pad and colored four of them. For the other four, I used a red glitter gel pen to highlight the "branches" of the snowflakes. Using a pop dot, I put the snowflakes together. Once I had them on the card, I added some red gems from Queen and Co. to highlight the center of each snowflake.
I hope you like it. I think it makes a cute Valentine's card. The inside sentiment says, "I love you this much". Very fittin' right?
Well, that's it for this post. Onward James...God bless y'all.
