Hello my friends! Welcome back to my blog! How are you on this fine hump day Wednesday? I hope all is well in your neck of the woods! We have been having some FANTASTIC weather here in PA the past week or so; so much warmer than it should be for the almost-middle of November! I'll take it though! I don't think I've heard ANYONE around me complaining about it being so nice out! 😄
In spite of the nice weather we are having, I am here to share my latest Christmas card that I've created:
I made this card for this week's Humor Me Wednesday, and did you know that the 14th is American Teddy Bear Day? I sure didn't, but it gave me a good reason to make this card! LOL This one is so bright and cheerful -- I just love how it turned out! I started out by designing a slimline card around this SUPER ADORABLE Teddy Bear Winter Topper image using the Silhouette software. My card size is 8.5" x 3.5". I knew that I wanted to use this super bright and colorful striped paper from a Recollections Christmas collection from a few years ago, so I designed the image panel and the scalloped panel to be smaller than usual so the paper could be seen better. I also used a piece of the bright pink paper included in the pack to add a thin mat around the image panel. The image was colored to match using my usual combination of various alcohol markers. After the coloring was done, I added details with a white gel pen, and I made sure that each bear had an accessory that had some Star Dust Stickles on it. The sentiment comes from the Ho Ho Holidays set from Lawn Fawn, and was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink using my MISTI. The cute little purple snowflake sequins and the tiny see-through purple ones I placed on top come from the Hello Frosty Sparkle Blend from the Sparkle Blends Etsy shop. The centers of those also got a small blob of Star Dust Stickles...you really can't have too much sparkle on a Christmas card, right??
