Somebody is Coming to Town!
Ha! Look at this pup....what a fun little image from The Rubber Cafe! This is another sweet image from the Creative Christmas Creative Cafe Kit.
This image is from the Hearts of the Season Add-On set that is available this month. I colored the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut it, leaving a narrow white border. You know I'm nuts about cutting....and the trick is to use a really sharp scissors and turn the paper rather than the scissors. This gives you more control and a smoother cut.
This card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches The red panel measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches. I did a bit of hand embroidery with Metallic DMC Floss (E703) to add a bit of sparkle and fun.
I used up scraps from a previous card I did with this kit. The Spellbinders Scalloped Circle frame I trimmed to a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch square and then lined with a piece of designer paper the same size.
TIP: Bend your clear stamps for fun effects on cards! I bent the Santa Clause is Coming sentiment to match the curve of a 3 1/2 inch circle of kraft cardstock that I stamped with white snowflakes. I love the way it ties my card together.
I added a strip of the snowflake designer paper measuring 4 1/4 x 1 inch just above the ribbon and then mounted my fussy cut image on it with foam tape.
