Hi, everyone! I’ve got a sweet, simple Christmas card to share today, featuring A Christmas Hug from Lili of the Valley.
I colored this image a while back, but only now had time to turn it into a card. I considered using a red card base for this, but really wanted the girl to pop, so I went with my trusty blue. This time I chose Blue Yonder card stock from My Favorite Things.
I die cut the panel with the girl and the polar bear with the largest faux stitch rectangle die from My Favorite Things from their Stitched Rectangles STAX 2 set of dies.
I used another faux stitch die to create the little circle for my sentiment, which is a stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and sprinkled on super fine detail embossing powder from Ranger before heating that until it melted.
I mounted my little circle sentiment with foam tape and had planned to leave it at that, but I managed to spill a drop of coffee on the snow portion of my image and needed to cover that up. One single sequin would look silly, so I added a few more to make it look intentional. No one will ever know that there’s a coffee stain under that smallest one. The sequins are sparkling clear from Pretty Pink Posh.
I use a crazy amount of markers to color snow…
