Lili Of The Valley - Christmas 2020 Launch #3

 Hi everyone

Today I'm sharing the 3rd of my cards using a digi stamp from the brand new Lili Of The Valley Christmas 2020 collection, which launched last week. All the new digi stamp are now available in the LOTV Etsy shop. 

For my card today, I used 'All Of Us' and 'Christmas Circular Sentiment' (snowflake version).  To colour the image I used my Copic pens with some new Super Smooth colouring card that LOTV have also launched. As previously mentioned the Christmas 2020 collection includes lot of santas, penguins and sentiments in different designs (the collection includes 60 sentiments). (This has now been added to my Etsy store)

FYI, if you struggle using digi stamps or haven't got a suitable software package on your computer then why not check out my 'Tutorials' page on this blog or in the 'Files' section on the 'We Love Lili Of The Valley' facebook group (if you are a member). I have written 4 pictorial tutorials on how to download a free software program called WPS Office and then how to use it with digi stamps.

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
First I added a piece of pretty snowflake paper to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. Using white card I die cut a pretty detailed square and glued it flat to the centre of the card front.

Using my graphics software I imported the cute snow family along with a sentiment and resized them both to fit my project. The image was printed directly onto tan colouring paper. As the paper I was using is only thin (like copier paper), I trimmed down the  image and stuck it onto card and then die cut it into a circle. 

The image was coloured in using Prismacolour pencils and when it was finished it was glued to a white die cut fancy mat. I added snow to the background by adding white pencil dots and larger dots using a white pen. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and attached to the centre of the card front on top of the white square. 

To finish the card I add a few pearls to the snowflakes and in the corners of the square.

A beautiful card Janine, your use of the dies are brilliant, I wouldn't have thought to using non Christmas dies on a Christmas card.
