It's so hot here in the UK, that I thought I would share one of the brand new snow people from Lili of the Valley (LOTV) to cool you down. I decided to colour this gorgeous digi stamp all pink and pretty to make a more feminine card, but you could quite easily transform it into a vintage card or even a masculine card by changing the colours and colour scheme.
So for my card today, I've used Snowman #2, which I coloured with Copic pens. I used pink background paper and a heart stencil. I hope you like it. If you would like to check out the rest of the new snow people and gnome images click here. x
For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps, and the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.
I trimmed down a piece of pretty patterned paper, and added it to the front of my card blank leaving a border around the edge. I die cut a scalloped edge circle from the same pink paper used in the background to be used later. From strong white card I die cut a fancy edged square which I added to the card front using funky foam to give it more support.
I imported the gorgeous little snow peep digi stamp into my graphics program, then resized it to fit my project. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and die cut into a circle, and then coloured in using Copic Pens. The image was printed again onto masking paper, fussy cut out and then stuck onto the coloured in snow girl. Using a heart stencil (from my own stash) I apply pink distress ink through it to give the impression of falling snow. When the ink was dry, the mask was removed from the image and added to the centre of the pink scalloped circle. The completed topper was added to the card front using foam pads. To finish my card I added a little glitter, a stamped sentiment (from my own stash) and a few pink gems.
