Sugar Nellie - On The Wings Of Love

- Morning Everyone -

Mmm, I thought this was supposed to be spring? Well so far we've had rain, wind and cold....and oh yes a splash of sun :(

Anyhoo, I thought I'd made a Christmas card because I was feeling inspired....mmm, I wonder why! Lol.  So for my Design Team card this week I used 'On The Wings Of Love' and it's available as a digital stamp. I just love Sugar Nellie's Home Grown digital and rubber stamps, they're all so sweet and pretty. For my card I used Copic pens to colour with, and then put it inside a frame. I partially die cut the image so the wings and basket could hang outside of the frame which works really well.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I embossed a piece of green card with a snowflake pattern and glued it to the front of a 5" x 5" card base. The image was printed directly onto some colouring card and coloured with Copic pens. Then I die cut an inverted scalloped square frame from white card and attached it to the card.

Next I placed the same square die over the coloured image and drew around it, then using a pair of scissors I cut around the wings and basket where I wanted them to hang outside the frame. I placed the die back over the image and carefully lined it up with the drawn outline, I made sure that the wings and basket were laid over the top of the die, then die cut it. the cut out topper was then glued inside the white frame on the card base.

To finish off I added some die cut holly and glitter.
Here's What I Used
Stamp: 'On The Wings Of Love' available from Sugar Nellie at Funkykits
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Green CS, Neenah, 5" x 5" Scalloped Card Base
Copics: Unfortunately I have misplaced my list, so as soon as I find it I will add the colours
Dies: Joanna Sheen Signature Dies 'Holly Berries', MFT 'Stitched Square Scallop Frame'
Other: Distressing Ink, Glitter, SN Glitter Pen, H2o's, Creative Expressions 'Snowflake Lattice' Embossing Folder

I really love the effect of this card Janine - how her wings are outside of the frame while she's peeking through - and that you only used part of the image - perfect! I'm loving her background too - is that sponged DI's?

The green is quite striking and perfect for a Christmas card - those things that I don't think of getting around to until November!! LOL!
