WFC2112 Challenge Guest Design

Hi friends, thanks for stopping by today. 
I'm super excited to share with you that I'm guest designing with Waffle Flower Crafts for the Waffle Flower Monthly Challenge!

One of my favourite things to do with a friend for their birthday is go out for coffee. The pandemic has made that a bit trickier, especially in the winter. Putting on a scarf and meeting a friend outdoors for coffee is a safe way to celebrate their special day!

I created a background using Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feather and Salvaged Patina. 

After it was dry I stenciled the Snowflake Background stencil with white pigment ink. It is a very subtle background but it is so soft and pretty. The sentiment was made using two stamp sets--Cozy Holiday Sentiments and Big Dots Sentiments. A little stamp surgery and I was able to create my own winter birthday sentiment which I white embossed.


I added to snowbanks to create the rest of the scene. I blended a panel of Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink to cut my evergreens using the Nesting Christmas Tree die. Then I stamped images from the Hamster Family set and die cut them with the co-ordinating Hamster Family dies! I used Liquid Applique to create the fuzzy ear muffs and added the images with a combination of glue and foam tape. The card was finished it off with a few iridescent jewels for sparkle and its done!

I hope to see you participate in this month's challenge for your chance to win!
Thanks for stopping in today!
