Wrapped up warm and cosy for Winter

Here in the UK the temperature has definitely been dropping over the past few days. We are still enjoying sunny days and blue skies but the sun is loosing it’s warmth and the days are ever shortening. It’s time to unearth those woolly jumpers, hats, gloves, scarves and thermals that have been languishing in the back of drawers and dark corners of cupboards over the Summer. The little girl in the image for this month’s progressive freebie challenge on the Art By Mi Ran Facebook page is well and truly wrapped up against the cold.

The 3 ATC’s

I printed out my image to the size I wanted along with 3 ATC sized images and coloured them all in with the Copics, using the paint pen to add the stars in the sky. I trimmed my imaged and matted it onto black card. I fun flocked her hat, muff, cape and dress trim and added Diamond Sparkles to her hat and muff. I covered the holly sprig with glossy accents to that it did not get lost in the fun flock.

Using the A4 white card I embossed it with the snowflakes embossing folder and folded it into an A5 card blank. I mounted my topper onto the front of the card. I die cut a snowflake from a snippet of white card, covered it with Diamond Sprinkles and attached it to my card.

I have not put a greeting on the front of the card so that it could be used for a winter birthday or Christmas once I have decided which to go for!

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
