Winter Wonderland

Hello Crafters!

Kelly here with a sweet and simple card for you today. 

We have been using some really awesome WOW Embossing Powders this month and I wanted to use it with my stencil for this card. 

I can't get enough of our Waves Stencil. 
To me it looked like it could be used to create some very cool looking "wind"

I started by tracing my stencil onto some white cardstock with two of my lighter Copics in the BG family. I then very lightly rubbed on my tumbled glass distress ink. I really wanted a subtle shimmer so instead of smooshing my whole Versamark inkpad on top of the stencil I used a Versamark pen to trace the same lines. Remove the stencil and pour on some WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer. This is like the stardust stickles of embossing powders! I love it!! 

It's hard to see the shine so I took a close up

Ahh isn't it lovely?! I colored the fox from Cool Buddies with copics and added a little detail with a white gel pen. Enamel Accents made his eyes and nose really pop! I wanted his feet and tail to over hang the sentiment from Smiling Snowflakes so I just cut a slit between his feet and tail, allowing me to tuck his body behind. 
That little guy is so adorable! 

Before I go did you see we just added another product to the Create A Smile line up?

I am smitten with that script "Beautiful" I can't wait to get my hands on it! What about you?
