For this card, I used a step card cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. I had some cute "Cup of Cheer" patterned paper I thought would make a good background for this darling digi from Star Stampz. The text was a freebie, and I'm sorry, I didn't write down who created it. Before I started my blog this past July, I wasn't very careful about those things, I'm afraid. Now that I am entering cards in challenges and blogging them, I'm trying to be sure to include the name of the designer in the digi file name so I can give credit for the hard work put into making digis, word art and cut files.
I sized everything up the way I wanted it and drew a cut file around the digi and the sentiment to fit around them. I did a print and cut with my Silhouette and then colored the digi with Copic and MEXPY markers, using Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles for the earmuffs and fur accents on the coat. I adhered my digi and sentiment with foam squares.
