I think she's so cute with her little pom poms on her tiny boots. Apparently, my cat Athena thinks she's cute, too, because she is sitting right next to the card, purring away. This might mean a few typos here and there, as she tries to get my attention so I'll put her opinions on my blog post here. Sorry about that. She's a chatty thing who likes to express herself in the loudest way possible.
Anyway, I colored this cutie with my copics, using my favorite pinks: R85, 83, 81. I used my new snow marker that I got at the stamp show a bit ago. It isn't quite as thick and puffy as liquid applique. It comes out much thinner and much faster. Thank goodness I started with the snow on the ground, not any of the smaller spots like her earmuffs! I chalked in some clouds, then added some clear glitter around the edges. I colored the holly berries and her heart locket with a red spica, then added clear glitter overtop. The large snowflake is from a pack of them that I on clearance last year at Target, with hopes that I could figure out a use for them on my cards. It's hard to tell, but the snowflake is covered in glitter. The lace is from my friend Sara's mother-in-law. The card still looked rather plain, so I tossed on some pink rhinestones and some cute little buttons. I think it's done. One more Christmas card down; I'm scared to count how many more to go!
This card is for the following challenges:
