Bluebirds and Snow – Christmas

Hi, everyone!  Can you believe Christmas is only a couple weeks away?  AH!  For this card I used the brand new SP & Company – Love Birds stamp.  I think this is just adorable.  I’m a sucker for anything cute and animal related.

I colored them with my Copics and then cut them out using one of my Stampin’ Up! Label dies.  I sponged around the edges with Broken China Distress Ink to help mimic the sky.  I really wanted there to be snow, but not the typical snowflake stamping, I wanted snow actually over the entire image.  I had an idea in my head, but I was afraid to do it because it would involve coloring white gel pen dots all over the image I spent awhile coloring, lol!  I decided to just go for it, and I’m glad I did, I love how it turned out.  I will definitely have to do this again.  I just randomly made different sized white dots with my gel pen over the entire image.

The patterned paper is from the Echo Park – Reflections Christmas 6×6 paper pad.  The card base is the SP & Company – Kraft Woodgrain Card Stock.  This stuff is great!  The sentiment is from the SP & Company – Filled with Cheer Emma stamp set and is heat embossed in white.

I finished everything off with some white gel pen stitch lines, a little heart, and a baker’s twine bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

    I’m so glad you decided to go for it and create “falling snow”! That addition made your adorable image even MORE adorable! Your coloring is wonderful, too!
