Bundled Up Christmas

Hello and Happy Sunday! What a gorgeous weekend here in Florida. Finally temperatures are down and it is a BEAUTIFUL fall day. Windows and doors open and cooler air is streaming in! I was waiting for that since April - lol. Don't get me wrong I love the Florida Summers but Fall and Winter in Florida are my most favorite seasons!

I have a cute little card to share today. It's a CAS design using the gorgeous  NEW Bundled Up clear set by Deb Davis - one of my favorite Whimsy Artists and fellow Floridian.

How to create this card:

1. Cut card base from ultramarine blue heavy weight (110lbs/300gsm) cardstock - 11" x 4 1/4", top fold card. Cut white card panel - 4" x 5 1/4" - from heavy weight mixed media paper (I used Strathmore Mixed Media 140lbs / 300gsm)

2. Stamp images from the Bundled Up clear set using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Copic friendly cardstock (I used Hammermill 100lb Digital Cover Stock) Color the images using Copics and then fussy cut. Copic colors used: E000, E00, E11, Y11, R81, R83, R85. R89, BG18, BG13, BG11, C3, C5, E30, E31, E33, E35, BV000, BV00, BV01.

3. Creating the background: Using post-it tape mask a rectangle (2" x 3 1/4") in the center of the white mixed media paper panel. Gradually sponge the background with an ink blending tool going from dark to light where the darkest color is on top. Distress ink colors used: Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon. With a black fine liner pen draw a line resembling a rolling hill. Stamp the trees and sentiment with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink (refer to the picture).
To add the falling snowflakes use a white gel pen (or what I prefer : Sharpie water based poster pen - extra fine point).

4. Finishing off the card:  Adhere the white background panel onto the card base using glue or tape. Add images with foam tape or foam circles for more dimension. To embellish the card add some clear/crystal sequins to the background layer as well as some Stickles Stardust to the girls dress and hat. For a finishing touch glue some white Fun Flock to the bunnies tail.
