Back again for a quick post for my first Christmas card of the year!! Even with the nasty heat we had last week, for some reason I have been dreaming of fall/Christmas cards. So I decided to break down and make one today.
When I saw the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketches, the idea just popped into my head. And wouldn't you know, it came together just perfectly!
Dilly Bean. I believe it was a freebie last year. It's just so cute. Everything on this card is pretty straight forward. I colored in the image with my colored pencils (like always :) ). The only difference this time is I finally used some of the Copics Sketch markers I won from Frosted Designs a few weeks back! I've been scared to use them because I'm not exactly a Copics expert..but I love seeing cards that have the little blue line around the image highlighting it. And I thought that would look so cute with snowmen, so I gave it a shot!
The blue panel behind the ribbon is embossed with a snowflakes folder, though it's mostly hidden. For the large snowflakes, I took one of the cut files that I already had of a snowflake, and altered it to have a ribbon bracket in the middle! I love it! I covered both layers in glitter and then slid the blue ribbon through the bracket and layered it on some white ribbon! How cool is that?
Then I just cut out a small tag for my stamped sentiment and tucked it behind the image! I probably could add some glitter to the snowmen, but I like them just fine without :)
