Happy New Year! I hope everyone is enjoying a safe and healthy new year so far.
This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is "Birthday".
I know a lot people with early January birthdays. So, for all of you, this card is for you! I definitely want to give a shout out to my Sisters In Stamping friend Rachel as it is her actual birthday today! Happy Birthday, Rachel!!!!
I love this little stamp and the matching punch (Cookie Cutter Christmas). Isn't it cute? I colored in the winter girl image with my markers (Crumb Cake and Dapper Denim). I also used some Blushing Bride on her cheeks. After I colored in my little snow girl, I used some pearlescent paint around the hood, cuffs, and edge of shirt.
I don't think you can tell, but I used Shimmery White paper for the igloo and background cardstock. To make the igloo, I first used my Simply Scored Tool to mimic the ice "bricks". Then, I used my Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the igloo. Next, I adhered a thin layer of glue on the scored lines and outline of the igloo and poured Dazzling Diamonds all over. I knocked off the unstuck DD and let it set/dry.
The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and I punched it out using the Duet Banner punch. I punched out the sentiment using the top banner and then punched out the bottom piece using Dapper Denim cardstock. I layered the Shimmery White cardstock on Dapper Denim and then layered them on Crumb Cake.
I finished the card off by wrapping a piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon, applying a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the punched sentiment and then used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up each item. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it because it makes me happy - I love winter!

Thank you for looking and have a great day!
