Hey there blogland friends!  I'm bringing a little, ooey-gooey sweetness to you today with my new OCL Sweet Holiday set.  So what do you's pretty dang cute, right!?!  I can officially tell you that I'm over my "white" phase.  Yep, tomorrow I'll start digging through the DP pile again to see what I can throw together.  But first I'll tell you about this busy, little card.

The images were stamped with Black Soot on Neenah and colored with Copics.  Once it was colored, Crafty Sparkles were adhered to the candy and Sparkly Fluff to the clouds.  The snow is something new for me.  I found a Snow Marker at JoAnn's and thought I would give it a try.  I'm not sure if I got the texture I was going for, but it is definitely interesting!  The background panels are two different EFs that were double embossed by following Tex's awesome video tutorial.  The sparkle just doesn't come across in the pics, but wow is it there in real life!

The snowflakes were cut with a Sizzix decorative strip then VersaMarked, sprinkled with Heat & Stick Powder and Iridescent Ice EP and finished by adding half pearls.  The car's window and tail lights have Glossy Accents on them...and check out that license plate.  Too cute!  The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders die.  The candy in the upper, right-hand corner is also a Spellbinders die and I free-hand drew the swirly line before coloring it with Copics and adhering Crafty Sparkles to it.  The ribbon was from my stash.  Oh, I almost forgot...the snow in the sky was created by dabbing my 0 (Colorless Blender) on the CS.  It took a few dabs before it lightened but I like the effect.  I think it would pop even more with a darker sky.

Copic coloring:

Gingerbread house:  E37, E35, E34, E21, R29, R27, R24, C4, C2, C0, BG10  Candy:  R29, R27, R24, G28, G24, G21  Car:  R29, R27, R24, G28, G24, G21, C6, C4, C2, C0, BG10  Ground:  E37, E35, E34, E21  Sky:  BG10, 0  Clouds:  BG10
