You Warm My Heart!



I made this card for a dear friend and had so much FUN with it! This is a great set to get creative with :-) This is probably one of the most detailed cards I have ever made. Here are all the details...

I used glitter striped designer paper for the background and layered it onto Bashful Blue and then Very Vanilla cardstock. The main focal image was colored in with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. I then paper pieced the dress (that is so much fun to do!). I outlined the snowman with Bashful Blue ink and a Blender Pen and added black Stickles to his buttons. I used Diamond Stickles for the snow on the ground and then for the falling snowflakes I used the silver end of the Zig Painty Pen to dot the centers of the snowflakes. The main image is raised with dimensionals as well as the snowflake accent in the corner. And for the snowflake accent I used the silver side of the Zig Painty Pen to outline the edge of the Bashful Blue cardstock and then again for the center of the snowflake. And last but not least, I added 3 rows of ribbon in Bashful Blue & Vanilla Cream.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
