Whoopsi Daisy Challenge DT - Make your Own Embellishments


Allsorts (122) - Clean & Simple
Cupcake Craft (167) - Teddy Bears

Time for another Whoopsi Daisy challenge. This week the theme is 'Make Your Own Embellishments'. The fantastic prize is 2 Digi stamp sheets of choice from Whoopsi Daisy.

I started this card by covering my base card with this gorgeous plaid paper from the 'Simply Joys' kit at Nitwit Collections. (If you want some fantastic digi papers/scrapbook kits at very reasonable prices then head on over to their shop and take a look. Believe me, once you have seen them you will want to collect them all). Anyway, back to my card. Next I embossed some white card, tore it and applied glitter to the torn edge before attaching it to look like a snowy hill. The little cutie image has been coloured with promarkers, cut out and attached with foam pads for a bit of dimension. I made the snowflake using nesties and covered them in glitter before layering them and adding a gem. I saw the Teabag Tree on one of Jacqui's (Cat's Whiskers) cards recently and thought I would have a go as I thought it would be the ideal embellishment for this card. You can find her tutorial here, thanks Jacqui. I haven't done teabag folding for such a long time I had forgotten how much I enjoyed doing it. Finally I glittered a small foam snowman and put him in the corner. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
