Bella Bear-ing Gifts

It's Digi Choosday time again and I've made an Advent Christmas card using Bella Bear Gift and Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Papers.  I created a basic side stepper card and added a little open-fronted box to hold die cut dates to countdown the days to Christmas.  I've used a festive colour combo and added some poinsettia dies to decorate.  

I tried to make sure that the plaid within the various panels of patterned papers on the card base matched so the diagonal lines all flowed. It was kinda tricky, especially on the smallest piece that I added on the front of the date box!  I gave up on the matching when I got to the poinsettias!

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:

  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Green: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint
  • Yellows: Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge
  • Floor: Speckled EggHickory Smoke, Black Soot
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting
