HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Hey there, this is my second post for today.  I'm showing another Hope You Can Cling To challenge card for the Splitcoast Stampers card drive for breast cancer patients and their families.  I'm combining two different SCS challenges for this one:  a sketch, SC355, and Deb's, Give 'em a Squeeze! challenge. She wants us to give our paper a squeeze by dry embossing an element on our card.

I tell you what...this card was stinkin' easy!  I love the sketch and embossing together and the tree image from Our Craft Lounge's Winter Wishes colored up so quick!  Three different embossing folders were used.  The big snowflake panel was double embossed. 

After it was dry embossed, a brayer was inked with VersaMark and gently ran over the top.  While it was tacky, Heat and Stick powder was sprinkled on it, heat set, Crafty Sparkles was sprinkled on and heat set one last time.  The main image was stamped on white card stock then colored with Copic markers.  Ribbon from my stash was used to tie a bow and the image was popped up on foam. 

Stickles were applied to the snowy areas of the trees.  Guess that's about it.  Seriously love how easy this card was!

Copic coloring:
