I've made a frame card for my latest Christmas/winter card.
I started out by making this a white-on-white card, but I decided to place a blue backgroud to make all the white features pop out. And then placed the coloured image against the white background to make itself pop out. I love doing white-on-white though because I find it easier when I don't have to worry about co-ordinating colours...hee hee.
I created the scene with lots of die-cuts. I just luvvv die-cuts. Can you tell I'm an addict?
I added glitter to the snow on the ground, the fur trim on her hood and the lantern windows--don't know if you can see the glitter.
A closer look at the image being featured.
This cutie is called Swiss Pixie Through The Night from C.C. Designs. It's an oldie-but-goodie stamp. I had stamped, coloured (with markers) and cut her out what-must-have-been a couple of years ago, but never got around to putting her on a card until now.
