Hello! Today I have a card made for the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS this past Sunday. I really should have re-made it, since it looks funny all squished and the pot it too big. I figure I'll never get around to it, though and I really wanted to share this because I love the idea of using snowflakes to make a topiary. I used this card for my inspiration.
I used the snowflakes from the Holiday Cheer StampTV Kit. These chunky snowflakes are perfect for this technique.
To make the flower pot, I cut a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock (SU) into a small rectangle, then trimmed each side to make it into a trapezoid. I scored at the wide end and then sponged some Ballet Blue ink around the sides and bottom.
To make the topiary, I stamped the two largest snowflakes from Holiday Cheer, using Bashful Blue ink.
Then I used a Copic marker (B23) to add some shading.
I used rectangle Nestabilities to cut out the cardstock and sponged around the edges while still in the die, with Bashful Blue ink. I colored in a line with Copic markers (C3 and C10) as a tree trunk.
Sponged a little Ballet Blue ink.
I adhered the pot I made and folded over the scored section and stamped a tiny snowflake on it. I also added gems to the top of the pot. On the snowflakes, I used my Quickie Glue pen to add some glitter to the snowflakes.
I layered with Pure Luxury In the Navy, cut with scallop nesties and used a White Heavy Base Weight card base. I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Greetings, then scored on either side of the greeting.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
