Shown above is a close up of the stamped image and the flowers.

Directions:

  1. Stamp the image on Cryogen paper and color with copic markers. The colors I used are B26, B24, B21, Y02, Y11, Y15  for her dress. E37, E34, E31 for her hair.  E11, E00 for her skin. YG61, YG63 for the greenery, and for the berries  R27.
  2. Place the image on the second largest Spellbinder Labels 8 die, and cut with the proper sandwich for your die cut machine.  Using the largest die cut the Winter Wonderland paper.
  3. Cut the Persian Blue paper to 6.75" x 4.75" and round the corners.
  4. Glue the Persian blue paper to the navy card stock, which is cut just slightly larger.
  5. Cut a 6" piece of ribbon to 6 inches and glue it to the left side of the Persian Blue paper with Fabri-Fix.
  6. Glue the  blue layers to the upper center of the front folded card base, and then adhere the Winter Wonderland die cut to the top center of the card.
  7. Stamp the sentiment and punch it out.
  8. Burnish around both stamped images with the Brilliance ink.
  9. Adhere both images to the card front with mounting foam tape.
  10. I already had flowers made from last year, using paper punches and glue.  (I always make extra flowers when I have the supplies out.  This way I don't have to bring my punches out whenever I need a punched flower, and it saves a lot of time.
  11. Now add the flowers and punched snowflakes with glue or foam dots; add stickles where desired, and let it dry.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like my card, and if you make one, don't forget to sign it.

Hugs, Pat

  1. So many incredible elements in your card Pat. Her dress is such a rich and wonderful color and really looks to be flowing and moving around her. You've done an amazing job!

  2. Pat... I love this stamp. I think your coloring on this is just exceptional. The contrast between the shadow and highlight is wonderful. You really made her dress folds "pop"! Fabulous job Pat.... but then, I wouldn't expect anything else!
