Hello again, my peeps! I mentioned in my last post that I set some time aside today to make a few cards (that are not design team projects, believe it or not), so I’m back with another one – this time for The Outlawz Crash Your Stash Challenge! The items to dig up from your stash this month are doilies! Our sponsor this month is Wink Wink Ink and I used the adorable Season’s Tweetings – Snowman With Little Bird digital image to make a Christmas card.
I actually love doilies and have paper ones in several sizes and colors in my stash, plus several doily dies in assorted patterns. I love an aqua and hot pink color combo so that’s what I went with for this card even though they are very non-traditional Christmas colors. I printed the snowman image on shrink plastic and used my heat tool to shrink it to use as the focal image. I added gemstones to the doily for some wintery bling. The sentiment strip across the bottom was cut from patterned paper from the same pad as the aqua gingham background paper… from one of my all-time favorite paper pads!
Here’s a close-up of the snowman. Isn’t he just the cutest guy ever?!
I printed a digital sentiment for the inside and embellished the panel with another strip of the patterned paper and aqua cardstock used on the front.
One more look… I’m so smitten with this image and design! It’s been a while since I played with shrink film and I really enjoyed myself… brought out the kid in me, lol!
