A Winter Note Card

I made this design just for the fun of it - no challenges! I had these two 'frames' left over from the SU! Top Note Die and the Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle Die and wanted to use them (for once). The adorable little poncho girl image is a digital image from Daisy May - a freebie over at the Copic Buzz group on Papercraft Planet this past week during their Challenge #24. Okay - this design *does* fit that challenge, but I had already made one. Copic markers were used for the coloring.

I used the Stampin' Up! stamp set "Priceless" to create the winter swirl background which is heat embossed in SU! Iridescent Ice embossing powder. A strip of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon compliments the Melon Mambo and Bashful Blue color combination. The sentiment is from a Creative Play Stamps (CPS) stamp set, and is layered on a Fancy Tags Spellbinders Die (also from CPS.)

I used a quickie Glue Pen to outline the bottom two layers, the left and right edges of the tag and around the sentiment to add SU! Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. A couple of clear, gemstone brads (SU! Pretties Kit has these) finish up the tag which is then popped upon SU! Dimensionals. Oh yes - the Melon Mambo Top Note outline layer, was dry embossed in the Big Shot using the Cuttlebug A2 Swiss Dots embossing folder for some texture and to compliment the dots in the swirls background. ENJOY!

This is such a cute card. I love that stamp and you have colored it up beautifully. Love how you used the top note frame too.

Thanks Julie for your kind comments on my blog.
