Winter Inspired

I don't always get the opportunity to do the inspiration challenge on SCS, but today was a good day to give it a try. I loved the blue and green dots on the dress found HERE. And the headboard shape fit perfectly with my new nestabilities. I also liked the color of the bedspread...it's soft gold tone reminded me of kraft...and I love using kraft with my pastels.

So, onto the card details. I stamped the Santa Snowman, Oh, Holy Night trees, and the Wearing White sentiment, (Whipper Snapper) all onto kraft with Smokey Gray Versafine. I then colored them with pastels. I cut the tree and snowman out edged them with Frayed Burlap, and mounted them onto my Nestability Frame (that is also popped up with dimensionals). I faux stitched the edges with my Always Artichoke marker,(Stampin' Up) and added a couple of buttons. The flakes are Snow Flurries (Stampin' Up), inked with Broken China (Ranger Distress Ink), and stamped off once. I added a touch of sparkle to the hat with my Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.


Supplies:
Stamps - Whipper Snapper
Paper - Kraft, Island Mist Light, Herbal Garden Medium (Prismatics), Melissa Frances
Ink - Smokey Gray (Versafine), Broken China, Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Buttons, Twine, Patels, Nestabilities, cuttlebug, Quickie Glue, Ultrafine Transparent Glitter
