Cute Christmas - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 14th of April, 2017

For the next two weeks at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by Carol, who has chosen the theme: CUTE CHRISTMAS.

This means that you should make a Christmas project with a cute animal or critter!


We are sponsored these next two weeks by Miss Daisy Stamps, who are giving the winner 4 images, one from each of the four artists that reside at Miss Daisy Stamps!

So on to my card!


I chose "Gift of Love Snowman" by Jennifer Nilsson Art for my image.  I digitally printed him on X-Press It paper and then coloured him with the following Copics markers:
  • red: R32, R35, R37
  • green: YG11, YG06, YG09
  • carrot nose: YR09
  • body of snowman: B000, B00
  • bird: BV01, BV13, BV17
  • background: BG0000, BG000, BG01
Then, unfortunately my Silhouette Cameo was not behaving and I had to fussy cut the snowman and bird! :(

I have then made a shaker card using stamps and dies from Ready, Set, SnowReady, Set, Snow - Lawn Cuts and Ready, Set, Snow Shaker Add-On all from Lawn Fawn. It is the first time that I have used this set and I have had it for a while!

I stamped the snowglobe using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on to some white card stock from my stash. I die cut the snowglobe and a base snowglobe from the same white card stock. 
I stamped Merry Christmas from Ready, Set, Snow using Cottage Ivy Memento ink, then I coloured the base of the snowglobe with E55, E57 and E59 Copics markers. 
The shaker component was made using my Fuse tool and Waterfall Photo Sleeves both from We R memory keepers. I added foil stars, glitter and seed beads from my stash to the shaker. Foam tape was used to adhere the shaker to the two parts of the snowglobe.

I adhered the snowman to the front of the shaker using double-sided tape.
I have then adhered the shaker to a small square card from Envelope Solutions.
