Good early morning everyone. Hope all of you that celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful one and are now resting off the mountains of turkey that has been eaten. If you ventured out on Black Friday I hope you found the deals you wanted and were home in time for Breakfast. Lol! I went out for the first time this year early on Black Friday. I did find a few bargains, but I'm not sure I'll try it again anytime soon! Much to much confusion and craziness for me!
So, my project today is a stair card that I made using one of Fred's winter images. I just love this one and had to use it as soon as I saw it! It is called Emma the Snowman Hugger. The digi comes with a few sentiments as well and I chose to use them on my card. They were just perfect and had to be shared! I made a stair card for the very first time and couldn't believe how easy it was to do!
The stair card is so simple, you'll be amazed if you've never tried one before! You cut your paper to the size 10.5 by 5.5. The you score it at 1.25, 2.5, 4.25, 6 and 8.25. Then you fold it in a stair fashion and presto, you're done! Really easy, right!? Embellish as desired and you will get the card you want!
I colored Emma the Snowman Hugger using my copic markers. If you've never colored white with your copics it is probably one of the easiest shades to color. For the snowman I used C3, C1, C00 and BG10. Only color the areas that would be shaded. Use the C's first and then go over them with the BG10 to give it that cold look. I always use my colorless blender as well over the ends of my shading to give it a smoother look! If you are coloring white for non cold objects use everything exactly the same except leave out the BG10.
My snowflakes are cut on my Cricut Expression and I used Viva Decor perfect pearl the embellish the edges. I purchased my Viva Decor products at SCACD, which you can get to by clicking here.
