Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Collection 2020 #1

 Hi there everyone

I hope you're all keeping safe and well. Well I'm doing my best to stay safe while still going shopping and meeting up with friends. It's so hard to keep the balance between being cautious and being in a state of paranoia isn't it. But it's the new 'normal' so I guess we all just have to do what we need to do, I just everyone else would do it too. 

Anyhow onto something more uplifting, I'm sharing one of my cards using a new digi stamp from the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas 2020 collection which launches tomorrow (14th August). For my card today I used 'Penguin Trio 2' and 'Christmas Circular Sentiment' (plain version).  To colour the image I used my Copic pens with some new Super Smooth colouring card that LOTV are also launching. The Christmas 2020 collection includes lot of santas, penguins and sentiments in different designs. Once the launch has taken place I will add the links to the digi stamps I used. (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 embossed snowflake paper to the front of a 5" x 7" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

Using my graphics software I imported the cute little penguins along with a sentiment from the new collection. I resized then both to fit my project. The image was printed directly onto colouring card, and trimmed down to fit behind the die cut rectangle frame. The image was coloured in using Copic pens and when it was finished it was glued behind the frame. 

Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and attached to the centre of the card front. To finish the card I added glitter to the snow and hat trims, plus a few die cut stars and pearls.

Sentiment: Christmas Circular Sentiment (plain version).
