joy & wonder fill the season
When I first saw the new Laurence collection Christmas stamps, it was love at first sight. The images are absolutely adorable! For my card today, I used the Teddie's Stocking image. So cute, isn't it? I paired the image with some Christmas papers from Bo Bunny and colored it with copic markers. I added lots of stitching, some scalloped border punching, and a poinsettia with a corduroy brad in the center.
After coloring my image, I die cut it with a rectangle nestability die. While the image was still in the die, I sponged some yellow ink around the edges. After assembling my card, I added some gold stickles to the center of Teddie's poinsettia and added some polar white flower soft to the bird's hat.
Have a great weekend!
