Flakey Friends

Hello everybody. Today I'd like to share my inspiration for the Leinzlove Tear Bear Challenge Blog

This card measures 5.5" x 8.5" and was created using a svg file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.

The base of this card was made using card stock from KI Memories - Holiday Collection - Alpine Wonderland.

My paper pieced snowmen and snowflakes are from the "Frosty Friends" file at KaDoodle Bug Designs, which you can find here:

I uploaded the file to Design Space and cut out the pieces using my Cricut Explore. Once all my pieces were cut, I then used Color Box Chalk Inks to shade each piece. I then used Aleene's Tacky Glue to adhere and piece them together.

To finish off my paper piecing, I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and added Stickles to the snowflakes and snowballs.

To create my sentiment, I first used a Banner Die from Craftin' Desert Divas

I then stamped my "Flakey Friends" sentiment onto the die. This stamp is from the Craftin' Desert Divas - Holly Day Punnies stamp set

I added a purple button and some twine (both from ReCollections) to finish off my card.

I hope you enjoyed today's creation. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!
