Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog! It's time for a new Stella Says Sketch at Catch the Bug, and here it is:
I said in my most recent post that I would mostly likely be making a lot of my Christmas cards using Bugaboo images, and this card is no exception!
I had this Poppi Xmas Snowballs image in my little image basket, and it seemed the perfect size for this sketch. I grabbed three patterned papers from the 12x12 Recollections paper pad called Fa La La La, and set about coloring the image using the papers as inspiration. I have to say, I really like those three colors I used on his scarf...I may have to use that combo again! I also grabbed a bright green card stock from The Paper Company 8.5x11 card stock value pack called Christmas Fun. I love this bright green! I used it for all the matting layers, and for that border strip down at the bottom. That was punched and embossed with a Martha Stewart punch I think I got on clearance.
I got to use my newly acquired bottle of Bearly Art glue for this card...I still need to get the hang of using it though! I popped the image panel up on foam tape, and added a couple pieces behind the left side of the sentiment circle, while the upper right corner was glued to the image panel. Star Dust Stickles was added to the snowy bits, and clear Wink of Stella to the white areas of the hat, and the sentiment circle. Oh yes, the sentiment comes from two Lawn Fawn sets; Cheery Christmas, and Toboggan Together, and was stamped with Versa Fine Clair Nocturne ink.
