Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop!  If you are looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, you have come to the right place.  Our team has decided to do a monthly Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month.

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash all ready to go for December 2018!

I used the adorable Love Cynthia stamp set called Happy Holidays.  I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock, colored her with copics, and then fussy cut the image.  I cut a strip of Bristol card and stamped snowflakes using the Flurries stamp set from Pink & Main.  I heat embossed the snowflakes with WOW gold embossing powder.  Next, I sponged Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink over the Bristol and flicked on some water spots.  I used foam tape to place the little snowgirl onto a vellum circle and then adhered her to my cardbase.  I added a few gold sequins for some extra sparkle.   I used a black glaze pen on the girl's eyes, and on the snowman's eyes and buttons.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41
Snow Outfit - C3, C1, R20, R00, YR04
Hat - R59, R37, R35, R24
Scarf - BG09, BG05, BG01
Branches - E25, E23, E21
Shoes - N8, N6
