I am back with another cute Tiddly Inks image called Cocoa Wishes. It was printed out on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut 3 1/2″ wide and the image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E21, E33, R20   Hair: E13, E15, E19, E18   Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97   Ear Muffs/shirt/bird: YR09, R24, R29, R39    Cup: E40, E41, E42, E43  ).

Two pieces of  3 1/2″ wide strips of Carta Bella’s Winter Fun patterned paper were adhered above the image and the edges were stitched. The layers were adhered to the card base a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded and a piece of red washi tape was adhered on the the paper strips on top.

A sentiment from Snowflake Letters Mini seals was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. A red button was tied on with a silver cord before the sentiment circle was adhered with foam adhesive squares. A few snowflakes were cut and embossed out of silver glimmer paper with Snowflake Borderabilities dies and adhered to the card to finish it off.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
