Freezin' My Snowballs Off-W2CB Dec/Jan
Hello and welcome to the December/January Words 2 Craft By word challenge. This month's quote is "I'm an angel at Christmas time, but the rest of the year I'm the real me. Benjamin, age 11" My card kind of flips that a bit and I decided to create something fun and mischievous! To create my card I started by stamping the bunny from The Cat's Pajamas Snow Days stamp set onto some Copic-friendly white cardstock and colored him in using my alcohol markers. I die cut the image using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things and then framed it out using some dark olive cardstock from Hobby Lobby and a Spellbinders circle die. I layered more of the olive cardstock onto my white A2 cardbase and then layered some pretty patterned papers from the American Crafts Very Merry paper pad onto the card. I stamped the sentiment from Unity Stamp Company onto more white cardstock, cut it down into strip and layered it onto more olive cardstock and mounted it onto the card below the focal panel. To finish this fun card off I added some red 6mm sequins from Craft Medley around the card. I hope can't wait to see how our quote inspires everyone else!
