Happy Saturday friends & stampers!! I am hopefully still sleeping in when you read this, hee hee---but it's supposed to be another cold & dreary day so a good day to stay in bed! We might take the kids & their friend bowling & out to Fuddruckers later though (I've a hankering for a good cheeseburger & chocolate shake)! Had the fireplace on last night while watching Star Wars "New Hope" (the very 1st movie--oldie but goodie, love me Chewbacca & R2D2 hee hee) and finishing my book "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton! Oh my was that a great read---her books are just so beautifully written and you can so imagine yourself in the story, I really enjoyed it! Can't wait till her next one comes out (her other one, "House at Riverton" was just as good too)! What are you all up to this weekend!!?
And this is the inside--TA DA!!! I think of it like the jewelry boxes that open w/ the lil' dancers inside :o) This cutie-pie is from the new Victoria Case for SCACD Winter Wonderland release & she's called "Skater"--isn't she lovely! I cut my own snowy drifts from glossy cs to the background & behind her and added more Snow Glitter to them--they are popped up on different levels w/ dimensionals for a 3-D effect. I also hand-cut the trees out of the dp and added them to the hills with dimensionals as well. (click on pictures to see close-ups) I added more frosty snowflakes and the sentiment is from the PTI set "Holiday Wishes". The pond was created with silver mirrored cs and then I piled on Polar White Flower Soft around it for a snowy feel!
Here's a closer look at the background with it's snowy hills & trees! I added some snow glitter to the snowflakes in the dp as well--so it's super sparkly & frosty IRL!
I think she's just a sweetie--don't you? I colored her with Copics and added stardust stickles to her mittens, hat trim & skirt. All her lil' pom-poms got candy pink Sparkle Fluff added to them--so they're soft & fuzzy! Doesn't it look like she's skating on a smooth pond? This card closes up flat (well kinda flat due to all the layers & texture, hee hee) and then she pop's up nicely everytime! Just a thick piece of cs or chipboard folded & attached behind her with Scor-Tape (this is the best for super strong holds) and then attached to the background--easy peasy to do! Do you likee? She's gonna sit on my shelf so I can admire her for a bit and then she'll be my dear friend Susana's Xmas card this year :o)
Now, if you haven't checked out these new "Winter Wonderland" stamps you can see them all HERE--they are super cute! (and if you order the whole set you get 25% off)
