GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS
For the background I used my Cuttlebug and the snowflake embossing folder. In order to get a nice deep embossed image I used GinaK's heavyweight (120lb) white card stock. The debossed image became the right side of my background. This was so I could roll the blue ink over the cardstock using my hard rubber brayer. You can't tell in the picture, but the while layer behind the snowflakes layer has the edges painted with icicles stickles to give the sparkle of new snow when the sun shines on it. I colored the snowman and birds with my copics and added liquid applique to the hat brim and pompom.
It was a fun card to do and really not all that difficult.
