I am two days late in posting this (April, I hope that my tardiness makes you feel better! LOL) On the 18th we were supposed to post our creations, however, my Dad's 81st Birthday was the 17th and my previous post was his card. I wanted to give Mom & Dad a chance to see the post easily without having to search for it. Anyway, enough of that. On to this card.
|A close up to show the pretty |
It's navy card stock on a white base, the corners trimmed with deckle scissors. The circle of snowflakes is a unique eBay find from many years ago. It's embossed with a snowflake, glitter EP that is also a find from a stamp show many years back. The circle is hand cut with an Exacto knife, so, it's less than perfect, ha ha.
Here is a close up of the inside panel with the adorable image chosen by our Hostess, Terry. Isn't he darling? He is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and accented with Snow flocking by Recollections. His eyes and buttons are these tiny gems from Can You Digi It. They are so small that they can be a challenge to work with but they also have Embellie Gellie to pick them up with and place them on your work. A big help!
Below is a photo of everything used to make this card, including a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig since the circle on the rubber stamp is not mounted straight on the wood block. Using this is the only way to get it lined up correctly.
Lesson learned: next time I'll add the snow flocking first and then glue on the gems. I had a hard time keeping the glue off of the gems.
Thanks for stoping by and for any comments you may care to leave! Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
