What is not to love about this adorable little girl? It is obvious that Jodi put a lot of love and detail into this precious card. It just warms my heart every time I look at it. A big Thank You to Jodi Collins for sharing this wonderful inspiration with us. Be sure to visit her blog Stamping A Latte for so many more outstanding projects. It is certainly worth a visit.
Using the adorable stamp Pure Innocence Merry KISSmas, Jodi stamped the image onto X Press It Blending Card. After the image was stamped she then cut it out with the Pierced Square STAX Di-Namics, and colored it with Copic Markers. Giving it some sparkle, she added Crystal Stickles to their hats and other parts of their outfits.
The background was stamped with Textile Backgrounds using Sno Cone Ink. The Kraft panel was stamped with Sheet Music Background using Kraft Ink.
To create the snow drift, Jodi used the Snow Drifts Die-Namics and Sweet Tooth cardstock. She then used the Essential Glue Pad directly onto the panel, and added some glitter. This gave it a feeling of real snow. A heart was added using the Wild Cherry cardstock cutting it with Hearts A Plenty Die-Namics and topped with a button tied with Hemp Cord.
The inside of the card is just as important as the outside. The Kraft panel with the Sheet Music background was stamped with Kraft Ink was once again. The sentiment “Friendship Warms The Heart” was stamped onto the Pink Lemonade panel with Black Licorice Ink.
Creativity involves in breaking out of your traditional style. Take a look at your project in a different way, and never hesitate to try something new.
Have a wonderful warm day crafting.
