Hello fellow crafters,
I am on a roll. Have completed my second Christmas card for the year....hehee.....not much of a roll I guess. But I usually don't get any done until the very last minute so I guess that's something.
Ever since I have discovered copics (around October last year), that is all I've been focusing on. Practising and trying to improve my colouring, and simply having fun with them. Have completely ignored my rubber stamps.
Let me show you my card.
For this card I pulled out an old little stamp set by Stampin Up! called Snow Flurries. Stamped these in Old Olive (SU), Close to Cocoa (SU), and Worn Lipstick (Tim Holtz). Then cut each out with my little circle die. Yes, a die!! Can you imagine running little circles through your cuttlebug heaps of times? Not only the ones you see on my card but a whole heap more as I couldn't decide which colours with which snowflake until I saw it all laid out. Sooooo wish I had one of those small circle punches. A 5/8" one would be perfect *sign*. Except for this part, putting together this card was really fun. With my copic obsession I have forgotten how much fun it was to simply stamp.
A few things helped me with putting together this card. Firstly, for the layout I followed a sketch from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #205. For colours, I went with white, light pink and green, in line with the colour inspiration challenge at IBSIC.
But mostly, this little cupcake stack inspired my little snowflake tree. This came from Cupcakes Inspirations Challenge and its cupcake number #169.
Added mini bows made of sheer organza ribbon amongst the snowflakes for some shimmer. Love this ribbon! Adds a hint of colour without being overpowering. And love the shimmer! First, I tried to add some bling with rhinestones but didn't work out. Found it to be too much so just used a couple on the corners. Finished off the card with white satin ribbon.
So here you have it. I'm quite proud of this card. Not a copic use in sight.
Hope you like it.
Thank you so much for visiting my space.
