Hey friends! It’s EK sneaking in to the blog, and today I’m creating a little post holiday blues card. I find the time after the holiday, but before the weather warms up to be the most difficult time of the year to create. Now that Christmas is over, I’m ready to start thinking about spring crafting, but that is still month’s away. So today, I thought I would just embrace my winter blues and create a cute critter card.
Step One: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×12 inches. Scor and fold paper at the 6 inches to create a 6×6 inch card frame. Trim some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.
Step Two: Stamp the critter images from the Winter Animals stamp set onto the white cardstock using copic friendly ink.
Step Three: Color in the stamped images using alcohol markers. I used copics and focused on shades of brown and blue.
Step Four: Die cut a frame for the card using Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock and the Frame It/Stitched Squares. Die cut some Rust Soft Finish Cardstock with the Garden Notes Grapevine Wreath Square.
Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the soft sky paper onto the card frame. Using Kids Choice Glue adhere the grapevine wreath, squirrel and fox to the card frame. Add the owl with three dimensional tape.
Step Six: Using the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set, stamp snowflakes onto the background using white pigment ink. Add a sentiment to the bottom right corner from the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set in blue ink. I used Archival Cobalt Blue ink.
Thank you for peeking into today, and helping me embrace my winter crafting blues.
