Winter Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe
I recently went to a crop last month and saw this adorable stamp set by Avery Elle and I am going to confess that I CASE'd the card they had as a sample. I had some snowflakes expand after I stamped them in Hero Arts white Unicorn ink, but snow isn't perfect, right? I stamped the trees in brown ink using my new MISTI that I bought at the crop from the Doodlebug in Jasper, IN. I'm not sure I see the benefit of the new MISTI, but I am sure I will. :-). I'm definitely a MISTI fan be it the old or the new. I stamped the birds on some thick card stock that held a charm pack of fabric so it was very thick. I had to dry the ink with my heat gun because I stamped on the shiny white side. I used my Tombow markers to color the birds and I fussy cut them out. The sentiment also came in the stamp set. I am going to use this set to make cards for my card swap group.
