EBTKS #28: Texture, Baby!

Today I am sharing a ramped-up version of my Christmas card. 
I had a blast coming up with ways to make aspects of the card pop! 


The Winter Bunny was stamped with Memento ink, colored with pencils and blended.  I used a red marker for the scarf.  I cut the bunny out and added flocking powder to his scarf (keep him nice and warm) and perfect pearls to his tail.   I did this over 70 times for my cards and other Christmas projects. (yeah, I'm a little nuts, but I just love this bunny). I used the MS Circle Cutter to make the shaped card at 4".  The background is stamped with Lawn Fawn's Frosties and embossed with clear powder.  I added some gems to a few flakes.  I ripped white paper for the snow and then covered it with cotton ballsI like that the scarf is unattached b/c I think it gives the bunny movement. 

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!





Thanks to Limelight Papercrafts for sponsoring the wee Memories challenge!  

I am also submitting this card to the City Crafters "Let it Snow" challenge 34

I'll share the card I massed produced to send out later this week. 
VERY similar to this, but I took out a few steps to save some time. 
Thanks for looking!  -Kelly
