Christmas Card using Winter Bird Friend

Back today with another Christmas card using this adorable limited edition sets from Simon Says Stamp that was designed by Pretty Pink Posh as a collaboration during the Stamptember event. 

This set has so many fun accessories and its always fun to play dress up....don't you think? Also, joining in for another day of the color challenge, day 7 over at the The Daily Marker 

These storybook dies are so much fun to play with and love last month's addition of of Storybook 5, with the larger frame and side by side smaller rectangle. Here, I decided to use the bigger frame on top, but it can be used in a variety of ways. 

For this card, I started off by adding some snow using the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp along with some texture paste. 
To create the snow hills, I pulled out these Scallop Borders die from Pretty Pink Posh where I die cut two (2) of them to overlap and added them to the frame before placing down onto the Kraft card stock.  Can you tell it's one of my favorite dies? 

Next, I colored in these cute trees from the Winter Friends set using my Copic markers: 
Green: YG03, YG17, YG67
Brown: E37 and E33 

Also, to help cut them out and save time, I used the Coordinating die from the Winter Friends. From there, I added in several 4mm Holly Jolly Christmas Sequins mix as the colors go so nicely against the Kraft and perfect for this occasion. 

If you notice, I also added some 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins and glued them directly onto the tree as ornaments. From there, I took one of the many sentiments from the set and heat embossed using Ranger's Super fine white embossing powder. Love the fonts and sentiments from this set.  

These winter hats and scarf's are so cute, so once again I colored them using my Copic Markers using a red combination of R35, R46, R59 and glued them in place. Also, I added one of the four pairs of booties. Added some foam mount tape underneath before adding to this card to give it a little more dimension.
