I made this card for the current Just Us Girls Challenge to use stripes, as well as the sketch at Just Add Ink and the colors from ColourQ. I CAS-ified the sketch somewhat but I hope you can still see the sketch in my card.
I stamped and colored the snowman and fire from my new Toasty Greeting set by MFT. I just adore the Birdie Brown sets and can't help buying one or two when ordering from MFT. The other thing I love about MFT is that they offer Fedex shipping, so I get my goodies in just over 48 hours - from Florida to New Zealand! The best part is if I only buy stamps, die and stencils, it's the same price as USPS.
But I've digressed enough. Back to the card. I stamped the Bold Diagonal Stripes Background stamp down the left side of my card base using Old Olive ink. I then cut a smaller piece of white and raised it up on foam tape before adhering my snowman and fire. The sentiment was black-embossed onto vellum and tucked behind the snowman.
Thanks for visiting! Once I've linked this up, I'm heading back to my craft room. A perfect day :)
