Inspired Stamp HLO Christmas Girl


Today at Inspired Stamps we are working with the new His Little Ones sets.  I have chosen to use HLO  Holly Jolly Christmas Girl on my card.  HLO is a cute little set (size 2x3" sheet) with a fun character and sentiment.  You can opt to colour the image, paper piece it or as it is.  Either way, your project will look fabulous.  Here's a look at the set I used:
Isn't she adorable?  I coloured her with Copic markers and cut her out using Spellbinders Labels 22.  I added some Sakura Glitter pen on the holly and berries, sponged the corners with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass (did I ever mention this is my favourite colour) and I also added a little outline around the girl with Copic Marker B0000.  The sentiment was stamped on die-cut piece, and I did some piercing along the edge.  I used a punch on the opposite ends of the sentiment and string Baker's twine around it and tied a bow at the right hand corner, and added pearls as shown.  To add a little sparkle, I used Diamond Stickles on the patterned paper.


The sentiment was from the new Vintage Christmas set:

To finish off the card, I drew a frame around the patterned paper using my Copics Multiliner 0.3 black pen.
