Let me introduce you to Pogo Joe the Snowman. He lives over at Sassy Cheryl's Digi Store with Snowy, Max, Maddie and all the other neighborhood kids. I needed a birthday card for someone special and the pogo stick will make this card quite personal. I don't want to go into the whole story since I haven't mailed this card out yet and don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient
Before printing the card I turned the image in 3 positions. Straight up, falling over to the right and falling down. I know I have a sick sense of humor, but so does the recipient. I designed the card to have a left flap which shows the upright snowman. When you open the left flap you see the snowman beginning to fall on the right flap,. When the right flap is opened the snowman has fallen in the snow.
I colored with Copics and sponged the sky with a light blue and violet inks. The snow was made by gluing Diamond Dust onto the paper. DD is sparkly and beautiful to look at, but it is sharp to the touch. You wouldn't want to use this on a children's card. I think I will pad it before I put it in the envelope for mailing. This card is for male so I left off my ribbons and embellishments. I couldn't help but put 4 little rhinestones in each corner. Guys like a bit of bling too don't they? The top of the card is folded down and border punched with EK Success Bubble punch. The sentiment is cut with an Elizabeth Crafts Die.
The card was quick and simple but it does look very sparkly and should bring a smile to that certain someone. So let's see what Sparkle and Shine you can add to a Sassy Cheryl Stamp or Digi and post in our Sparkle and Shine Challenge. Winner gets 2 digis from Cheryl's store. Need more inspiration?
