Yesterday I made two cards using Paperbabe Digi Stamps but I only Blogged one of them as I wanted to save the other for today
I used 'Mayleedee - Frost Fairy' and she inspired me to make a Wintery Card that could be used for a Winter Birthday or For Christmas
I wanted to create a different kind of background so I laid out some Snowflake Dies on the plate of my ebosser i then laid a piece of special coated Mirror Board face down over them and laid the rubber mat on top I ran them through the machine to emboss the card. I then sanded back the special coating to reveal the silver underneath I really like this effect.
I scored and folded an A4 sheet of Centura Pearl cardstock to make an A5 cardblank I then inked the edged using 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink. I fixed the embossed panel to the front of the cardblank using Collal All Purpose Glue.
The Image is coloured using Copic Markers
Hair: E31, Y23, Y21
Skin: E11, E00, E000 Blush: R02
Dress: C2, C1, C0, 0
Wings, Ribbon, Wand, Eyes, Snowflake: B45, B41, C0, 0
I trimmed the Image and then Matted onto silver mirror board and then layered using a pretty backing paper. I fixed this topper to the card front at a jaunty angle.
The sentiment stamp is from a set by Joycrafts I stamped it using 'Stormy Skies' distress ink then matt & layered using scraps of cardstock to match the card.
The Snowflakes and the Snowflake Border are all cut using dies from Joycrafts I cut them all using offcuts of matching cardstocks from my bit box then layered them up using Cosmic Shimmer glue I fixed the border under the topper panel and then the layered snowflakes in the corners to balance the card.
I added some bling from my own stash to finish
I really like the way this card worked out
