Hey everyone, it’s Christy here with another card for our Fun with Dies Challenge! As I’ve been flipping through my Lawn Fawn stamp sets lately, I’ve been pausing often on Winter Bunny. He may have been around for a while, but in my opinion, he’s a classic! And today is his day to shine as the one and only colored image on my card, amidst a winter wonderland created with dies.
After he was colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with his matching die, I set him aside while I created a background using Distress Oxide inks. I sprinkled the background with some Liquid Stardust for a pretty little splash of shimmer when you tip the card into the light. Then I took a few snowflake images from Ready, Set, Snow, and stamped those on the background in purple. I cut down the panel and added some stitching detail with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and adhered it to a light purple card base.
I had this vision for the scene with giant snowflakes tumbling out of the sky, so I die cut a bunch out of white cardstock using Stitched Snowflakes and glued those down to the top half of the card, and trimmed off any excess. Then I added the Forest Border, also in white, for Winter Bunny to sled down.
Next I die-cut the Forest Border from white cardstock and blended Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress oxide ink over it. Then I die-cut the Little Town Border from Raspberry cardstock and adhered tiny squares of Fog cardstock behind the houses for the windows and doors. The hills, houses, forest, and clouds represent the lines of the sketch. Next I stamped the sentiment from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the layers together and tucked the sun behind the forest. Finally I adhered the sentiment with foam mounting tape to finish the card.
And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how the sketch inspires you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous week!
