HLO Winter Girl

Today I have an Inspired Stamps Christmas card to share.  This card is one of my favourites, I love the bright colours and the cute Winter Girl. I simply Adore all the Inspired Stamps HLO characters.  They are so much fun and perfect for paper piecing or colouring.

I coloured HLO Winter Girl with copic markers (see list below) and used a Spellbinders circle die to diecut the image. Then I added some sponging around the edges of the card using Distress Ink Evergreen Bough and  adhere it to two other stacked die-cuts from Labels 9 and Picot Edge die. All papers are from Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas. The sentiment is from Winter Ruth set, and I split the words so they fit on the card.  Before placing the stamped image & sentiment onto the cardbase, I tied a red organza ribbon around the card and secure it with Baker's twine and adhered a green button with Glossy Accents.  The finished card measures 4.25 x 4.25" and opens upwards.

Don't forget to Register at the Inspired Stamps store as Antoinette is having a secret stamp giveaway - read all about it here.

Now, it's time to visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration from the Design Team. Enjoy the hop.

Have a great day!

The bright colours of the card are very attractive but the eyes of Ruth appeal to me most.
