Let it Snow Card




This is such a busy time of the year that I ran out of time to post a card yesterday. So, I’m doing it today before I forget again. This card meets the requirements for these two challenges:  









 


This card was made for one of my great-nieces. It is an old House Mouse design. It was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol but the hat was not red enough so I went over it with an alcohol marker. The image was then die cut with my new Stampin’ Up stitched circle die. (You get 12 stitched dies, 4 each of circle, square and oval which was great because all I had was rectangle stitched dies so yes, I treated myself once again) The background is a Stampin’ Up snowflake embossed piece of cardstock that I then sponged some light blue ink around. The image was then glued to a large die cut snowflake and glued over the embossed snowflakes. This was then glued to the white card base. The sentiment is just a small stamp that I stamped twice in red; notched the ends; glued it to a piece of red cardstock and glued it to the bottom of the card. Once the card was finished I added flocking to the hat. I think she will like it.



That’s all for a fairly mild day for November, 2016-11-29.



Cheers

Violet

Love those House Mouse stamps!! I have never used flocking so thats an idea i must remember... Love your card Violet. We've had mild weather but the next few days promise to be colder... Highs in the 40's F and lows around freezing... Maybe even a chance of snow flurries later in the week... OOOooooo :) Hugs! deb
