I used this adorable Elisabeth Bell image and fussy cut around her. I've used Bridal white glitter by Sprinkle n Sparkle on the fur of her coat and a dab of Stickles Star Dust on her bow and berries on her hat. While adding the glitter, a tiny drop of glue dripped and when I tried to wipe it off, I gave my poor little girl a scar on her cheek. It's always so upsetting when this happens and it's the last step of the card you've made. Sigh. She's sledding down a hill made with an edge die by Spellbinders.
The shaker circle by Impression Obsession is filled with Stampendous purple Fragments and assorted beads and I stamped inside with two little Stamps by Judith--one is a star and the other is 3 dots. I used a Spellbinders scallop edge die to back the shaker circle and embellished it with purple pearls.
My paper is by Doodlebug Frosty Friends pad and this has been my favorite winter pad this year and I've used numerous pages from it and even purchased a second pad at an after Christmas sale for next year! My purple bow was the finishing touch and, of course, I used my awesome bow maker by Craft-Dee BowZ. I don't know how I would have managed this bow without it. I went ahead and left the tails of the ribbon long and wrapped them around my card front before attaching it to my heaviest white card base. I did it like this because I didn't want the 'tails' to hang off the bottom of this card. I love how the double bow came out and it reminds me of a bow tie. ;)
My teammates at Craft-Dee BowZ have created some awesome projects for this March 1 inspiration post kicking off our March ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW challenge. I hope you'll join us this month!
