Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Hi friends,

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. My weekend is also going pretty well although I am trying to spend as much time as I can relaxing and not doing pretty much anything. I know, I know.... weekends are to enjoy and to spend time with all your friends and family. But since I had a very stressful week at the lab (I am a PhD student, so you can imagine), I think I deserve some calm.

And keeping in mind this week's Mo Digital blog's fun and fabulous challenge which is Don't be Square, I decided to play with my Winter Fairy Halla stamp. 

Supplies: Fairy Winter stamp, Copics, Wow glitter, Ribbon, White paint, 2 Patterned Papers,  Cardstock, and Distress Inks.

At first I didn't know which shape I wanted to use (a Christmas sock, tree, wreath...) but  I really like how this project turned out in the end. Isn't the Snowflake shaped card cute? And it is also very versatile: you can use it as a Christmas Card, as a Christmas decoration or even as a centerpiece. 

This is how I manage to pop it out. As you can see from my previous card I like to create a 3-D kind of image or just to try to give it some dimension. 

As you can also appreciate from the photo, I didn't use Copics this time to color the Fairy clothing. Instead, I stamped the image on the same patterned paper as the one I used for the Snowflake to link the fairy to the winter background. For the fluffy sock ties I used a red patterned paper to give him more personality.

Well, the weather outside is frightful, but the browser is so delightful. 
And since we've no place to go,  
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.
