Smooch x Two

Can you tell I've been on a bit of a cardmaking roll recently?  My fifth post for October already. Of course I missed actually posting on World Card Making Day... I was making cards. :D 
Today's card was almost instantly triggered by this week's inspiration at the Curtain Call challenge blog. 

That doesn't mean it didn't take a few days to translate my ideas to actual cardstock. Here's what I ended up with:

I knew right away this was a good opportunity to to make a potential Christmas card for my husb, and that a snowman would be involved. I decided to perch the little bird on the snowman's hat, after she's obviously given him a *peck* on the cheek. To me, his shy smile speaks volumes. I coloured the bird's wing and tail with the same ink as the lips, allegedly to play up their heart shapes. And while I have lots of suitable patterned paper, I made my own sky background with a mask cut with a Paper Smooches die. 
It's an Anything Goes week at Paper Smooches SPARKS, so I'll enter this card there as well. 

Supplies: white & blue cardstock, Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes & Chilly Chums stamps, Memento Luxe gray flannel, Versafine onyx black, & Brilliance pearlescent sky blue & orchid inks, Zing clear embossing powder, watercolour pencils, Paper Smooches borders 1 & word bubbles dies, icicle & black diamond Stickles, pop dot tape

Pin It Now!
