Warm Winter Wishes Card

Good evening everyone :-D 

Yesterday I received the package with oh so beautiful Crafters Companion Bebunni Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pad and C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps 'Christmas With Ralphie'. :-D So much happiness. This was a prize of my choice for from Bunny Zoe´s Crafts, which I won as random winner at Cute Card Thursday. Thank you so much ladies. :-D 

With my new paper and digital stamps I have, I made this Warm Winter Wishes Card last night.


For this one I was inspired by a current challenge on Meljen´s Designs - Patchwork. There is still time to play, if you like. 

First I made a patchwork layer using 4 different designs from Bebunni Christmas Paper Pad. I made it as shown in video tutorial by Lawn Fawn, with a small change. I made it in Découpage technique. After the layer was dry, I had drawn stitches with black fine liner, as on other two layers.

I used two Meljen´s Designs digital stamps for this card, 'Bundled Little Snowboy' and 'Starry Holly'. I bought them this month, because there is a big sale at Meljen´s Designs. This was such a great opportunity to get all those cuties from wish list. :-D 

I also used a cute little digi ticket stamp 'Warm Winter Wishes' by Kimberly M. Landmesser, The Beary Scrap.

All images are paper pieced. I used 4 images for snowman and 2 images for holly and ticket stamp. I took photos of snowman´s layers. It was pretty late when I was making this card, so I forgot to take photos of layers from other two images. :-D

I colored with colored pencils snowman´s nose, cheek, buttons (coal), hands (wood) and that tiny piece of mitten. I added some sparkles to white pieces of snowman´s outfit with silver sparkle pen. Other is patterned paper from Bebunni Christmas Paper Pad. Look at that lovely "sweater" pattern. It was perfect for snowman´s outfit. I also added transparent varnish  on images and some dimensional tape at the back of the ticket stamp. Here are some close up photos of the finished image. 

 

Card dimensions are 13,3 cm x 13,3 cm (5 1/4" x 5 1/4").

Here is a list of materials and tools I used to make this card:
