Hello fabulous friends! Thanks for stopping by today. I’ve pretty much made myself stop making Christmas cards at this point but I’m not letting go of all the cute winter and holiday images yet! So I switched gears to creating some thank you cards to use through the winter months instead. Today I’m sharing this sweet mini scene featuring stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps.
To create my card, I chose a circle die that would fit the image from Warm Winter Wishes and cut it out. Then I stamped the image and colored it with my copic markers. To set the scene, I used BG000 for some snow shading but dark blue ink and a blending brush to shade in the sky. Then I came in with white gel pen accents for falling snow and extra snow drifts on the ground.
Next I took a white panel and cut it down to 4×5.25 inches and adhered it to the Feed the Birds stencil. I spread gold glitter glitz gel through it and set the panel aside to dry. Once it was dry and I started layering things together, I didn’t like all the white so I inked it up with light brown ink and a blending brush for some contrast.
Next, I cut a banner from white cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Fall Bouquet stamp set. I added foam tape to the back of everything, layering on my scene and sentiment first so I could trim off anything hanging over the edge. Then I added the whole panel to a white card base.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to parts like the berries, ornaments and snowman eyes.
Isn’t this just a sweet little scene and so fun with the glittery background!?! I think it will be a perfect thank you card to send someone after Christmas!
