winter wishes

** 12/15/17 Highly Commended Winner at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge! **

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Another fun challenge is launching over at Crafty Catz and I’m popping in this morning with a guest designer project! The theme this week is Sparkle N Shine and our sponsor is Polkadoodles, so come on over and play with us!

I purchased this adorable image, Christmas Shopping – Winnie White Christmas, for my stash and couldn’t wait to use it! I don’t often use pre-colored images but this one was just too perfect to pass up! I cut the image with a double-stitched square die. You can’t tell in the photo, but I used Versamark and Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder on the entire surface of the image to create a very special wintery sparkle.

I chose a pretty blue gingham paper for the background, along with some glitter cardstock and several different die cuts to embellish this adorable focal image. I stamped a sentiment in black ink and cut it with a fishtail die. I finished the front with a double loop bow created from beautiful wrinkled ribbon.

For the inside, I stamped a simple sentiment on a panel layered on blue cardstock. I’m so loving how this turned out!
