Before the month ends I wanted to share with you the last project that I made for September's SheetLoad eZine issue. If you remember, JessicaLynnOriginal sponsored our September issue and was gracious to let us use some of her cute stamps. She is the designer who made the adorable owl stamps called Brentwoods.
Using her Evan and Evee Christmas Caroling Digistamp and the September's sketch, I created this Christmas card for the upcoming holidays.
The digistamp was printed out on my inkjet printer and then I always heat set the ink before I color the images with my Copics. One technique to note is how I ran my red cardstock circle through the Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder and then lightly sanded the raised edges to make it look white and to add texture.
I also wanted to add some bling for a really festive card so I also added rhinestones to the center of my snowflake punches and made the snow by sprinkling glitter over glue. Christmas always needs a little bling, bling!! LOL!
