Bunny Christmas Card
I am a little embarrassed to admit that I didn't send out Christmas Cards last year. I know...I know...a crafter like me. Sometimes I am on top of things and sometimes not! This year, though, will be different! Behold my very first Christmas Card! I used a cute digi stamp from The Greeting Farm called Snowball Fight. You can find it here.
I plan to enter this card in the following contests:

After cutting a circle around my image, I colored it with Copic Sketch Markers (B00/12/16, BV00/4, C1/3/5, E50/41/40 and R20) and added white flocking and glitter to both the fuzzy areas (like the girl bunny's hat and the boy bunny's tail) and the snow. I cut a scalloped circle from lavender cardstock (to match the base of the card) with my Nestabilities and after inking and distressing each-I used the scalloped circle to matte the image. I embossed the blue cardstock using my cuddlebug and snowflake folder and cut the paper in half. I inked and distressed each layer before adhering it to the page. I used an old Theresa Collins-notecard journaling spot and stamped a sentiment from Inkadoo that I felt matched the spirit of the image! Hee-hee! Then finally I cut out three snowflakes using my Seasons Slice Cardtridge and covered them with glitter. I put a gemstone in the center of each snowflake! Tadah-my first Christmas Card is done! Let's not talk about how many more I have to go....
