"Snow Days"

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I had to get a start on my "Christmas Cards". I only have about twenty (20) made so far, so this one will make 21.
This card is from a "Close to My Heart" stamp set call
"Snow Days". It a cute stamp set as you can see from the link to my store. For this card I used the house. Here is the card I came up with;

"Snow Days"

And here is a better view of the house it's self.

"Close Up"

I cut out the image and the mat using Spellbinder Dies. The patterned paper used was from "Close to My Heart" called "Wonderland" part number X7146B. It has 3 sheets of double sided patterned paper (2 of each) and matching cardstock. Well worth the price of $9.95.

The image was colored with Copic markers.

The snow effect on the image was created with a "Marvy Snow Marker". I like this snow pen alot better than then "Liquid Applique", because the Marvy marker can be heat set after only 15 minutes. The Liquid Applique needs to dry over night.

The snowflakes I used a "Martha Stewart" punch that I cut out of silver paper that I ran through the Cuddlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

All and all, I am pretty satisfied with the card, but the important thing is what is your opinion?

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Wow I think the Marvy marker looks much better than the applique too. Am going to have to look for that. As always, I love your coloring!
