Happy Friday everyone! And happy Black Friday to all my American sistah's! Even though I don't live in the states I do love to watch the morning Detroit news to catch all the frenzy. I would SO be one of those crazy shoppers if I lived there.
For today's Bellarific Friday challenge card I chose Stamping Bella's Snowy House and up until now Gifty Tree was my fav card...NOT NO MORE....this pink and aqua beauty has taken over that spot. I followed the sketch pretty closely by adding the glittery snowflakes to the ribbon. How'd she do that? I taped a piece a piece of scor tape to some white cardstock and then punched out the teeny snowflakes. Then I removed the cover of the tape and sprinkled them with silver glitter ritz, brushed off the excess and there are my nice glittery snowflakes!
Other little details include a nice thick coat of liquid applique on the roof that was also glittered, clear glaze pen on the christmas lights, crackle accents on the windows and red liquid pearls on the berries. Whew! LOTS of copic markers used on this card...when I looked at the pile I counted 29 of them...too numerous to even try to remember where I used them so I just threw them back in their cozy tote. Finally that pretty double bow was again made with my bow easy!
That's it! My current fav Christmas Card. Be sure to hop on over to Emily's blog later today to see what else everyone has come up with....AND....if you are in the mood to shop but don't want to wrestle with the rest of the crazy black Friday shoppers, take advantage of her thanksgiving coupon!
