WHIMSY DECEMBER DIGI RELEASE BLOG HOP......

Hi and welcome to the WHIMSY DECEMBER DIGI RELEASE BLOG HOP.....if you have arrived from the lovely ANNEKE'S blog then you are in the right place if not them you may want to start at the WHIMSY INSPIRATIONS BLOG so that you don't miss anything along the way....

For my card i wanted to showcase one of the pre-coloured digi images by the very talented Chrissy Armstrong "Teddy's First Christmas"....these images are just perfect for a quick card or if you are batch making.
I decided to go for a shaped card....the image enlarged perfectly,to give you an idea of size the card it fits into a 6in square envelope.
I printed the image off four times,before cutting out the base image i adhered it to some sturdy cardstock then cut around the image to form the shape,the hinge of the card is behind the bird.
I then cut the parts i needed from the other images giving lots of dimension to the card.....i added lots of glitter to his hat and the pom pom on the birds hat....and alittle glossy accents to the teddy's nose.
The sentiment is also a new release today from the Whimsy Christmas Sentiments set by Ann,Raindrop Echo Designs.The teddy was holding a sugar cane but i cut this off and made a slit in the image around his thumb so that he could hold the sentiment instead :0).
Hope you will go check out all the fab releases over at WHIMSY.....don't forget the beauty of a digi image is you can resize,rotate,flip and many other things you can't do with a stamp.
Well that's enough waffle....just to say before moving on to your next and last port of call which is CHRISSY'S blog please don't forget to leave a comment there will be two random blogs who will pick a winner from their comments and they will get to pick a digital image.
The grand prize winner will get to pick 5 digital images and a chance to use them as a GDT for WHIMSY for the entire month of December.....that winner will be picked at CHRISSY'S blog.
The hop will remain open from 1st December 12 noon EST untill 7th December 12 noon EST.Hope you've all enjoyed the hope so far and good luck :0)

Take care

I love the layering! Thank you so much for the excellent instruction on making a shaped card--something totally new to me. Now I'm anxious to give it a try. I was never quite comfortable with using the pre-colored images, but you really can use them in a very creative way.
