Hello everyone!! It's Friday!! Woo-Hoo!! That means the weekend is finally here and all the fun that comes with it. Are you ready for Christmas? I'm getting there, and am excited for the kids to come home.
But, in the midst of decorating and present wrapping, I thought I'd make a card for this month's Power Poppy Power and Spark challenge, which is to choose a previous challenge to work with.
I chose November's Embellish This challenge. I've been itching to color the new Snowglobe Greetings digital image because I knew right when I saw it that I wanted to make it dimensional. I started by coloring 3 images for the inside and layering them using Paper Tole.
For the base, I cut out an extra piece, colored it, put 3 large pop dots behind in the center, glued two cardstock tabs to the side, cut two slits on the outside of the bottom base, slid the tabs through and voila...it looks curved.
I embossed the top panel, glued it to a black frame, attached that to an acetate base and popped it up a bit to fit the dimensional image inside. So this baby is full of depth, dimension, and textures. For the snow and Santas hat and cuffs, I used white Liquid Applique. I used a brush to spread it on, sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU!), and then heated it with my Heat Tool. I also added glitter to the background and Santa's beard.
That about sums up today's project. For some more Holiday inspiration, check out the following Bloom Brigaders:
