I got the idea for this card from a card on Zazzle. It made me laugh, so I knew I had to try and replicate that humor.
I decided to use Rubbernecker's "Blake" (SKU:593-01) for the snowman image. Using a Tuxedo Black Memento marker, I inked the image (leaving off the sign Blake carries). I stamped the image onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I then placed a Post-It mask of Blake and snow onto the cardstock and brayered the following dye inks: Vivid Bermuda Blue, Adirondack Sail Boat Blue, and Adirondack Stone Washed. After removing the masks, I colored Blake with Copic markers, and then added a line of Crystal Stickles on the ground.
With a brush, I added many snow flakes (dots) with Copic Opaque White.
The sentiment is computer generated. I used my Cricut (George and Basic Shapes) to get a template for the speech bubble.
I placed a panel of acetate over the square scene I created.
Sheer white ribbon and a snowflake ribbon put the finishing touches on this card. The image is framed with black and blue cardstock.
