JOLLY, HAPPY SOUL

Hey there, I'm back with another breast cancer awareness card for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers. At the end of the month, all of the cards will be sent to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.  Barbara's challenge "Big or Small, Save Them All!" is about breast cancer attacking women, men and even children.  She wants us to use two sizes of geometric shapes on our projects; I went with squares and circles.

This stamp set is one of my favorite Christmas sets from Our Craft Lounge called Be Jolly.  The Nestie circle was cut from white card stock and masked so the ink wouldn't go all the way out to the edge.  The snowman was stamped with black ink then colored with Copic markers.  The smallest snowflake is there because I forgot to mask the cane and it went to the outside edge...oops!
The snowflakes all have Stickles on them, and a brown brad was put in the center of the smallest to tie the whole thing together.  Clear rhinestones complete the card.  There isn't a sentiment on the inside...instead, the tree and owl from this set were stamped and colored.  I guess that's about it.

Copic coloring:

Snowman:  B63, BG10, C00, 0, R30, YR12, YR01, E59, E57, E55, E53, E50  Hat:  C5, C3, C1, C00, RV34, RV11, RV10, YG67, YG61  Scarf:  RV34, RV11, RV10  Sky (inside and out):  R0000  Tree:  E59, E57, E55, E53, E50  Owl:  E53, E50, E19, E17, YR12, RV34, RV11, RV10  Snow:  B63, BG10, C00, 0
