BUGABOO NEW RELEASE -- SNOWFLAKES -- DECEMBER 1, 2020
This guy is called Snowflakes, and hopefully he'll be in the shop soon! I merged the image into my Silhouette program so I could work with him, and decided I would add him to the front of a shaker card. I edited the image to get rid of the surrounding snowflakes, and gave him a cutting outline that still incorporated the little squiggles of snow on the ground. That way he wouldn't look like he was floating in midair on the card front.
After he was cut out, I changed things up a bit by using my Tombow markers to color him. And being a snowman, he needs to sparkle, so Star Dust stickles were added on top of the blue mostly on his left side. I added just a couple white gel pen accents to make him come alive.
I cut the front panel using the largest die in the Spellbinders Card Creator Set B, and then used the 3rd largest Spellbinders Classic circle to out out my shaker window. To frame it, I used silver foil card stock from Michael's, the same circle die, and the 2nd largest Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circle die. I'm sure you are all well aware of how to create a shaker, so I won't go into those details, but the shaker bits are comprised of a combination of Distress Rock Candy glitter and 3 different Sparkle Blends: Blue Blizzard, Frozen, and the Nov 2020 Fan Mix. I just thought all 3 of these would look awesome in a shaker, and this way, I'm not using up all of one kind! That satisfies my hoarder tendencies. 😆 The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Winter Fox mini set, and was stamped in VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.
