Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Card #5

 Morning Everyone

Where are the weeks and months going! Is it just me??  I feel like I haven't posted any cards in ages. I've been busy though setting up my Etsy shop and adding stock, plus I've decided to sell my Cricut stuff on eBay, both of which have taken up a huge part of my time. Anyhow, I spend the weekend colouring up 2 really cute Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi stamps and teamed them up with some of the new digi papers.

For today's card I have used the 'Cosy Christmas Bear' digi stamp (transparent sky in a solid white square - PNG style) and one of the digi papers from the 'Snow Princess' set in both the scene and in the background. I coloured the scene in with Copic pens. Did you know you can buy the images already pre-coloured  from the LOTV Etsy store, which are brilliant for batch making at Christmas time.

FYI, if you struggle using digi stamps or haven't got a suitable software package on your computer 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) as I've 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 
I printed out the Snow Princess papers onto good quality printer paper. The paper was trimmed down and added it to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. A white die cut frame was glued flat into the centre of the card front. 

Using my graphics software I imported the the same digi paper I used earlier and reduced it slightly; I then rotated it so the colours would appear be the opposite to the background paper. Next I added the digi stamp over the top and resized them both to fit the die I intended to use. When I was happy with everything I printed the scene directly onto my colouring card and die cut into a scalloped square. The image was coloured in using Copic pens. The finished scene was glued flat onto a pink fancy edge die cut square, and funky foam was added to the back. The complete topper was then adhered to the centre of the card. 

To finish the card I added a die cut poinsettia and a few branches, plus a little glitter to the snow.
