Day 6 Of 25 Days

Hello crafty friends,
Thank goodness it’s Friday. I hope you are wrapping up your work week and getting ready to do some Christmas crafting.  I am sharing another card I created.

I used some Die Cuts With A View DCWV Christmas and Winter Value Stack.  I also used a pretty cut file from PaperCraftingWorld.com as well as the Cardinal Pine Cones Digital Stamp.  I also used some Robin’s Nest Dew drops around the frame for an added decorative touch.

Here is a closer look at the cardinal digi. I used some Copics as well as a couple of markers from Close To My Heart to color. I then used some dimensional white paint along with some fine glitter to make the branches and pine cones “snowy”. I did also use some Pearlescent chalk for the background around the cardinal.

Here’s a shot to show the pretty understated dew drops I used. These colors are all in one bottle. They have some really nice mixes. I also machine stitched around the outer edge of the mats.
