Creative Nugget: I just love this cute "Winter Friends" digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. After choosing the patterned paper from the Winter Park collection by Echo Park, the image was sized to fit the sketch and colored with copic markers, pulling the colors from the paper. This was then cut with a square nestie. Some Weathered Wood Distress ink was lightly sponged around the edges while still in the nestie and small white dots were added with a white poster-paint pen to represent falling snow. All of the panels were layered onto Smokey Shadow card stock. The bottom of the Smokey Shadow DP layer was punched with a snowflake border punch. The sentiment from the "Cozy Friends" clear stamp set was stamped on the Select White layer and impressed with a canvas pattern. The little heart at the end of the sentiment was a leftover from a heart border punch from another project and received a dab of Glossy Accents. All layers were mounted onto a Soft Sky card base. Some sparkly twine and a felt snowflake were added to complete the card.
While we are on the subject of snow, Kody LOVED his first snow experience!
Don't let this cool, calm, and collected pose fool you...he had just been racing around the yard like a mad dog, burrowing his face in the fluffy, white snow!
See what I mean!
Hope you enjoyed my card and the photos! The Sugar Babies have some other fabulous samples for you this week...don't they always!
