Wintery Hello

Hi everyone.  It seems 2017 is flying by.  I can’t believe a week has gone by already.  Anyway, with Christmas now over, I thought I had to pack away my winter themed supplies, but that is not the case.  YAY🎉  For today’s card, I made a CAS winter miss you card. I also got to check off two more new stamp sets from my NBUS list. 😁

I stamped the little critter onto some X-press It paper that my friend Christine gave me to try.  I coloured with Copics and then die cut it out with the matching die.

The Hello sentiment was die cut also from X-press It paper and coloured in Ombré blue to match parts of the hat that were also coloured in Ombré blue.  The tree branch was die cut from a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed down and then coloured with Copics.

Next I die cut a white Stitched Rectangle and then stamped the miss your face sentiment in Archival black.  I sponged some Pool Party ink for the sky background.  I mounted the stitch panel onto a top folding white card base and then assembled the card.  I added snow with a white gel pen.  As a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to the Hello sentiment and created icicles hanging off the branch.  To make the icicles glisten, I sprinkld on some Dazzling Diamond glitter.  I love that image and pairing it with that sentiment makes me laugh.
