Greetings! The holidays are often filled with hustle and bustle, but some folks just want to relax by the fire in a comfy chair, perhaps reading a good book. That’s what I tried to make for this card…calm, relaxing, nothing crazy…but with a hint of the holidays. I used the Shaken Not Stirred stamps and coordinating outline dies from Stamp Anniething‘s Kawaii Cuties collection.
I started by coloring and die cutting my elements I used Copics to color everything, and I added a layer of crystal clear Sparkle Marker from Spectrum Noir on the glass of the snow globe. You can see it better in the photo below. I added some iridescent vellum behind the snow globe…partly for shine, and also to sort of radiate the calm feeling I was trying to emote.
I colored my card base with a Copic. E13, I believe, to match the wooden base of the snow globe. I topped it with some patterned paper, and added a strip of washi tape.
I kept the card pretty simple, because I really didn’t want the “message” to get lost. Sometimes for the holidays all you want is some peace and quiet. And that’s totally okay. Be sure to check out the rest of the Kawaii Cuties collection over on the Stamp Anniething website. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
