Warm Winter Wishes

Afternoon peeps.
I'm here this afternoon to remind everyone that there is still time to enter this month's CUTplorations challenge. Here is my inspiration card for you.


It's based on this photo.


Last time I used an inked panel for my card and the rest of it was used to make the background for this card. Waste not want not!
I cut it from the panel using the smallest of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies , then using the Warm Winter Wishes phrase die, I cut away the middle, replacing the purple with a previously cut white one. Saving all the extra bits from my purple panel allowed me to fill in the gaps around the phrase and then for extra depth, I added another die cut in white but this time colouring the dot over the eye with red Copic and some Glossy Accents before glueing it all in place.
I added some extra detail in Wilted Violet DO with the snowflakes in the VIGNETTE-Christmas-Block set. Sadly this is now on the retired list but you may still get it at 50% off!
The finished purple panel was then mounted onto a white rectangle cut with the middle Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, and a slightly larger pale grey panel before fixing to a white base card.

So what will inspire you? We'd love to see what you make.
Check out the rest of the team here and then join in!
