Here is my first card for this release using a rubber stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong called Christmas Bunny Row.
My card has been inspired by a card the lovely and super talented Crissy taught us at the Whimsy Craft Retreat. Thanks for the inspiration Crissy :-D She taught us how to achieve this amazing snowflake background with Copics and a gel pen. On my card here I've added mini snowflakes using a stencil, modeling paste and super fine glitter. Unfortunately the glitter is not showing in the photo. But I can tell you it is super shimmery and sparkly :-)
I've used Copics to color the super cute Bunnies. DP is from Whimsy's Winter Whishes DP. I've also used the Snowflake dies, Holly Vine die, Pierced Border trio dies and Build a Poinsettia die. To embellish my card I've used SnowTex, super fine loose glitter, mulberry paper flowers, stamens & berries, coarse glass glitter, metal corner, chiffon ribbon, some cheese cloth and Winter Wishes enamel dots with glitter effect.
Copics used:
Bunnies Fur: C0, C2, C5, C7 / R30, RV42
Cloth: B32, B34, B37, B39 / YR30, Y23, Y26, Y28 Holly: YG67, YG25, YG21 / R22, R27, R59

Happy crafting!
