Recently Jessica celebrated her 11th (sniff) birthday and she received just about the most perfect gift for a bibliophile, a gift card to Barnes and Noble! While there so she could shop to her heart's content, I came across a magazine published in the UK. I've never bought any of these types of magazines, but this one had some stamp set freebies I couldn't resist. It's called Make Christmas Cards Bumper Pack. I tried finding it online, but I was unsuccessful. Anyway, I thought some of the stamps were adorable and sat down this weekend to use one stamp in particular. The magazine also came with a packet of papers, both for making cards, decoupage and even coloring.
The magazine had a step by step on how to create this card, although it isn't difficult. It came with the pattern paper, but I had the cardstock, snowflake punch, ribbon and gems. I also colored him and his little friend with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I added the sparkle using Stickles. Had a little issue with globbing on the one side, but after it dried it didn't look too bad, so I didn't have to start over.
Isn't he just so cute?
That's it from me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope to see you again soon.
