Today’s Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge is called “Let It Snow”. It sure is perfect for where I live. We had our first snow “sprinkles” a few days ago. Today we are supposed to get some more later in the day. For my card I picked Oliver. I really like this little guy. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It! Blending card and colored it with Copic Markers (Penguin: C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, C8, YR23, YR24, E97, Hat: YG63, YG67, G28, Marshmellows: E50, E53). The background was airbrushed with Copic Marker B21. Faux Snow and a bit of  Chunky Crystals Crafty Sparkles were added to the bottom of the image.

A frame was cut with Label 8 and curved Rectangle Nestabilities out of and embossed with both dies as well as Canyon Brown Neenah Solar Card Snowflake Impressabilities. With the dies and the Impressabilities template over the frame (that wasn’t easy to hold all three) the frame was sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

A piece of Acetate was taped behind the frame and a mounting tape was added. More Chunky Crystals Crafty Sparkles were added inside the frame an the image was taped behind it to create a shaker.

Beige felt was cut with Create-a-Flake Shapeabilities dies, held together with a Recollection brads and adhered to the frame. The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Holiday Sentiments. It was stamped on Natural White Neenah cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, cut and embossed with the Five Tag Spellbinders die and airbrushed with Copic Marker E51. It was topped with a small felt snowflake cut with Create-a-Flake Shapeabilities die and topped with another Recollection brad.

The card base is a 4 5/8″ x 11 3/4″ piece of textured Kraft cardstock folded in half. A 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Merry Christmas Echo Park paper was stitched to a 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper series. The long side of a 4″ long beige felt strip was cut with the Label 8 Nestabilities and adhered to the horizontal paper strip. May Arts Crochet Lace was adhered over the lower straight edge of the felt.

The shaker piece was adhered to the center of the card base with dimensionals and the sentiment was adhered to the left hand side of that.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and smiles
