Shimo-san Holiday Fun

Now here's a card that I loved how it turned out..........just in time for the Holidays.........all that snow already in the East Coast!!! It's a morph between a Shaker and a Window card. I am absolutely loving that Release #3 of the Sister Stamps..just in time for the holidays. Stardust Stickles is used around the Oval Frame, Snowflake, and Message. To make the card front and mats, I used my SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) program to customize the shape of Shimo-san Stamp.

See the Micro beads? Use snow or sprinkles.....................I like the sound of micro beads (and I also have some to use up).

Punch or use a snowflake die, pop with dimensionals, position onto card. Then add Stardust Stickles.

Stamp message, punch out using SU Large Oval Punch, use Stardust Stickles around tag, pop with dimensionals. Add a tiny adhesive rhinestone above the "i".

SURPRISE.......the card front holds the micro beads in between two sheets of acetate. The inside is the stamped image.

Copic colors used:
Face: R20, E21
Dress & Hair Bow: RV06, RV21
Hair: W10, W7, W5
Boy Dress and Snowman: YR04, YR09, B41, O, B18, B23, B32
Scarf: G24, G07

A better view of the Stardust Stickles added around the snowman and snow.
