I hadn’t played with MFT stamps for a while. So when I saw this VSN Mini challenge, I  got out Pure Innocence Snow Angel, stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, once on Neenah Solar White cardstock and twice on small patterned Holly Jolly Echo Park Patterned Paper.

The image was colored with Copic Markers (bear: E55, E57, E59   Holly & Berries: R08, R17, R29, G02, G05  Hat rim: C2, C0, C00   Snow: B0000, B000). The scarf hat and mitten patterned paper pieces were shaded with G0000, G000, G00, the boots and coat with R02, R05, R08). Before the paper pieces were added to the main image, The image was cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. Two cloud masks were added, the image was masked and the background was airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. The Clouds were shaded with Copic Markers W00, W0, W1.

The image layer was adhered to a slightly bigger Canyon Brown cardstock circle and then to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Tear Drop Circle Nestabilities die. Turquoise Baby Bling was added to the Tear drop circle.

A 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Holly Jolly paper was adhered stitched to a 4 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ Holly Jolly paper piece. A small strip of white cardstock was adhered to the top of the paper layers and brown May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the horizontal layer. The bow was topped with a button, tied on with Linen Thread. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. The bottom two corners were rounded.

A sentiment from Snow Angel was stamped on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The center of the oval was colored with Copic Markers R000 and R00.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
