Christmas card for Sweepie


I made a card for my little niece Sweepie and have one for her little sister, Little Munchkin, in process.  I had a lot of fun with this card as I got out my colored pencils, Goo-Gone and blending stumps.  I'm a bit out of practice with my coloring technique.  I also finally set up my Cricut and used my new Paper Lace cartridge.  I love this cartridge as there are so many fun shapes and designs, even ones that are doily-like as the one on this card.  It is hard to tell in this photo but I used Stickles to accent the ear and hand muffs.  I ran DP through the Cuttlebug and then lightly sanded it to bring out the white core.

Recipie:
Stamps:  Elisabeth Bell
Paper:  WW, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, DP
Ink:  Stazon Black
Accessories:  Colored Pencils, Goo-Gone, Blending Stump, Cuttlebug, Martha Stewart Punch, SU Snowflake Punch, Cricut, Sanding Block, Stickles, Buttons, Stick on Gems

Get out! You used Goo Gone to help color this image?? I never knew one could use that!

This card is adorable, and I think your niece will love all the details and the sweet little girl image.

Merry Christmas!
