Little Snowflake Dancer

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

I just couldn't wait to use this adorable stamp illustrated by Sylvia Zet. It was one of the new releases this month, available in red rubber from Whimsy Stamps.
I created a stage around her by cutting out some "curtains". I simply used an oval die and then cut it to shape the curtains. Since my paper was double sided, I had to cut out two ovals, but if your paper has the same pattern on both sides, you can just use one oval. For the valance I layered some lace, a punched scallop border and then added the snowflake border. As tiebacks I used snowflakes and some black gingham ribbon. The image was stamped onto copic blending card and colored with copic markers. 


Here is a view of the inside of my card. This is how I usually decorate my insides, just a little bit of stamping and a bit of matching designer paper. Other than that I like to keep lots of room for writing on the inside. I used an older snowflakes background stamp randomly, and then in the corner I stamped one of the sentiments from the new set "Bracket sentiments".
Product list:
copic blending card, recollections 110 lb card stockstock, SU designer paper
gingham ribbon, glitter
