a Wintry Love Card


The Mod Squad challenge this week is to make your own background paper. I used the GinaK Stately Flowers 6 stamp set, and gold embossed the pinecones on the soft stone cardstock, adding tiny red birds done with a SNSS silhouette stamp set. For the main image, I used the large image from Stately Flowers 6 and embossed it in gold as well, adding a little color with Copics to make it stand out from the background. I dotted everything with liquid applique to look like snow, added a red die-cut bird, a tiny black gemstone for the eye, and lastly a little red bow. The sentiment is also from Stately Flowers 6.

Thanks for stopping by on this very busy weekend and have a wonderful day!
