Welcome to Day 3 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm featuring the adorable Hello Bluebird Fall Buddies, except I'm turning it into a Christmas card! These critters were just too cute in their little scarves.
I wanted to pull in a pop of red, so I added in the two cardinals from Snow Play, colored all my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
For my background I sponged Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock, and trimmed it down with the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2. I heat embossed a sentiment and some snowflakes on the background, then added two snowdrifts using the MFT Hit the Slopes Die-namics edged with Tumbled Glass.
I layered this over top of my patterned papers from the Echo Park Merry & Bright 6x6 pad, and adhered my images with liquid glue. Before I added the squirrel, I drew in a shadow beneath him so it would look like he's making a snow angel.
To finish things off, I added a few Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals to the larger snowflakes and a bit of Crystal Stickles for some extra sparkle and shine. I also stamped on the inside with Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo ink which you can check out in the video.
