Holiday Birthday Card

Some Thursday inspiration for you.....see more inspiration at the Creative Playground HERE.

Earlier this summer, I posted a 2 page scapbook layout showcasing the Airstream Camper my sister and her husband came in for a visit.  Now that it's my brother-in-law's birthday (on Christmas) I made him this special card.

I used the camper outline and digitally colored it.  Then I did lots of layering with elements from several kits from Imagine That! digis by Kris.  After printing out my digital composition, I added some "snow" and other mixed media products.


From the Imagine That! digis by Kris store:

The Great Outdoors                        Snow Mice

Christmas Sled                           Owl With Robin

Other products:

Finnabair Art Extravagance Snowflake Paste

Too Marker At You Spica gold
Zig Wink of Stella silver
Sakura Glaze Pens:  black #849 and blue #825
Marvy liquid applique
Stampendous Crystal Glitter
Prima Finnabair Art Basics Heavy Body Gel transparent (on strand of lights)
