During the Mini VSN a few of weeks ago, the first challenge was to create a card with an image of a warm clothing along with some felt on your card. I had just shot the video tutorial for the Pocket Card ,and had a finished pocket, that just needed an image to be finished off.

I stamped an image from the super cute There She Goes Clear Stamps Wonderful Winter Wishes set in Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock as well as a  patterned piece from Echo Parks Holly Jolly paper pack. The jacket was cut out of the patterned paper and shaded with Copic Markers ( R35, R37, R39). The image on the cardstock was cut and embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and also colored with Copic Markers (mitten and boots: G000, G00, G02 Skin: E0000, E00, E01, R20 Pants: E40, E41, E42 Snow: BG0000, BG000, B01 Hair: E97, E25 carrot: YR15, YR18). The jacket was adhered to the main image and the background was airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. The cloud that had been masked, was shaded with Copic Markers (W00, W0, W1).



The card base was created out of a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock, scored at 1 1/4″ and 5 1/2″. The four corners were rounded. A 3 3/4″ square of Holly Jolly paper was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of whtie cardstock. A quarter of a paper doily was adhered to the lower left of the the stitched layers and three buttons were tied to it with Linen Thread.

Part of a Finesse Swirl was adhered over the buttons and more Rhinestones were adhered to the lower right corner. The layers were adhered to the card base. Before the flap was taped down, May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around it. Pink felt was cut with a small Heart Nestabilities die and stitched to the top of the bow.

The image circle was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Tear Drop Circle Nestabilities die. The layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

The inside tag is a 3 1/2″ x 5″ piece of Solar White cardstock. The top corners were rounded and a 1 1/8″ wide strip of Holly Jolly paper was adhered to the lower half. A sentiment from the Wonderful Winter Wishes set was stamped above the strip with Tuxedo Black ink. Another pink felt heart was topped with a clear button and stitched to the tag with embroidery thread.

The card works great for this weeks DYSU Challenge, so I will be entering it there. It’s an easy challenge that I could enter all my cards into. Use ribbon. It would be harder for me if the challenge was NOT to use ribbon. LOL
