A Magical Christmas & Garden Bear

Hi all! Here is a card that I made for the Super Sketch #94 (please click to see the sketch) over at the PWCO Blog.


Did I tell you that I am making good progress on my holiday card stash? =) I would love to send a card to each of you if I could. Seriously, you are the best!


I used the lovely A Magical Christmas illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for my card. She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Classic Ovals Large die. The piece is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together.


The patterned paper is from the Yuletide collection by Memory Box. I used the beautiful Old Swedish Lace die from Magnolia on the red and white patterned paper. The snowflakes were cut using Snowflake Borderabilities die and covered with Coarse Crystal Glitter. I also added some Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes and the snow on the ground. The sentiment comes with this stamp.


Here is a card that I made for the Super Sketch #92 (please click to see the sketch) two weeks ago, but completely forgot to post. =)


I used the adorable Garden Bear from the Cutie Patootie Collection for my card. He is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels One die.


The patterned paper is from the Lime Twist Fly A Kite collection and the sentiment is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes.

That's all for now. Hope you have a lovely day! =)





Thanks for stopping by!
