Snow Fight...a book card


I decided to try to make my first ever book card. I'm not sure how happy I'm with the result, but here it is.

I used this adorable "Snow Fight", Belles 'n Whistles stamp from the Snowbabies collection and my nesties to cut the image. The "branch" stamp is from Whimsy Stamps, I stamped it with brown ink. I distressed image and the papers with distress inks - "Tattered Rose" and "Vintage Photo".

I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and added some sparkle with my Sakura gelly roll pen, I even added someof it on the girls' lips and eyes, it shows a bit too much in the next photo, but it looks nice, otherwise. I also added some Stickles glitter glue on the snow.

The paper is from stash, I made the ticket using one of the accessories from the MME paper pack.The lace, ribbon and the flower are from stash.

I put one small chocolate bar on the inside and decorated the inside with some paper scarps. I used a border punch and three stamps from . The two white flowers are Poppicrafts.

I had forgotten to take a photo from this angle with my camera, so I took a couple of photos with my phone afterwards. I'm afraid those don't look very good...
