For You!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

Here is a card I created using last Saturday's sketch from The Sweet Stop, SSS68!!

I decided to make a Christmas card today because I REALLY wanted to use the new Mitten Weather paper from Cosmo Cricket!!

I started by stamping Allboxedupa-Bella from Stamping Bella twice in Memento Tuxedo Black, once onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper and once in one of the patterns from Mitten Weather.

I colored the entire image with Copic Markers and then paper pieced the package in the foreground and cut it out and popped it up on Foam Tape. I added some shine with my Clear Spica Glitter Pen to the bows and all the polka dots on the presents.

I cut out and embossed the main focal panel with Square Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo. The sentiment is from Turtle Tots- A Flower For You, and I just inked up the "for you" portion and cut it out and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities.

All the layers were sewn on my sewing machine and I added two Cherry Brads by American Crafts on the bottom corner and called it done!!

This week's Bellarific Friday challenge is a fab sketch brought to us by Paulabella! Make sure to email your creation to Emily by Thursday evening to be in the running for the next Bella Babe!!
