I had started this card earlier in the week and just hadn’t had time to finish it. When I finally got on the internet last night, I checked out a few of the weekly challenges…I decided to finish off my design by incorporating the sketch challenge and the bling Ways to Use it challenge and guess what? It was just what my design needed! 🙂
Following the sketch challenge, I cut away a little of the righ side of my front panel. I trimmed off a little more than the sketch as I was using a 5.25″ square card design. You know how I love square cards! 😉 Behind my front panel, I adhered a strip of slit punch scallops to make the image and design pop out.
For my main image, the Inkadinkado snowman…how cute is that?!!!… was stamped in black and then colored with my Copic markers. I layered him with ruby red adn then white, distressed the edges and then stitched around him on the sewing machine. A little scrap of Basic Grey Fruitcake paper was punched with my round tab punch and then held with a Karen Foster snowflake brad. Oops…better not forget some of the bling…my image was highlighted, as well as the sentiment, with my Sakura glitter pen.
Quick Tip: It is easy to adhere your rhinestone stickers evenly in a line if you pierce where you want them to go with your mat pack first.
For more glitter, I used this new preglitter Making Memories Christmas paper to layer on the front panel. Some clear rhinestone stickers from Doodlebug Designs are adhere to the inner panel. I love it when you can see elements from both the open and shut sections of the card. The Merry Christmas sentiment is stamped in Ruby Red at the top right of the design and is from the new stamp set by Lizzie Anne Designs.
I’m loving Inkadinkado stamps and having so much fun with them lately. In case you’ve missed it…Jacksonbelle is having a great Inkadinkado contest on her blog. Winner will get some great prizes as well as the Guest Designer Spot for Jacksonbelle Embellishments for the month of December. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
