Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge #26 - 'Happy Holidays'

The December challenge is up at Paper Sweeties. Want to win some stamps or dies for you or perhaps to give as a gift to a friend? You can get a gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties store if you win. Just make a card based on the inspiration photo and enter it into the challenge here.

Here is my card. I used a technique I originally saw on a Kristina Werner video. I loved it and had to try it. For the top half of my card, I heat embossed several images from the Holly Days set in white. Then, I used a Versamark Marker to create depth by shadowing parts of the image. The bottom half uses the snowman stamp and die from the same set. I used Prismacolor pencils to color the image and popped it up with foam adhesive.


Here are some additional ideas from my design teammates. Go check them out, then enter to win!
