I Brake for Winter


Hi, Braker Fans. I have a new project to share with you as my DT assignment for I Brake for Stamps. For my card this week I decided to make another Christmas card only this time I'm using non-traditional colors. I’ve seen some awesome cards in blog land with pinks and blues and they just inspired me to create something extraordinary.
The stamp I used is a new release from the IBFS store called “Winter Avie” by Chelsea Le Designs. I colored my image with Copics and made a criss-cross card using Bazzill cardstock and MME Winter Wonderland designer papers.
I cut my image out and mounted it on white cardstock and a Spellbinders Oval die cut. Then I adhered pearls from Recollections to the frame. I machine stitched my panels with pink thread and added a lace border from JoAnn’s under my image.
I used a Magnolia folded tag die to create the pull out card panel and added vintage seam binding from WOC tied in a bow. I completed the card with a few flowers also from WOC and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges.

I love the paper, almost purchased it yesterday, but then I have a ton of paper already, I might have to go back to the store! I love your card and the lace wrap is so pretty with the oval frame and pearls. She is cute too and perfectly colored.
