Now, let’s talk about my project for today. I used the Winter Wonderland paper pad on today’s project, but I purchased mine at MarkerPop right here. I loved it soo much that I ordered it for the store too (and maybe so I could have another paper pad too lol)!

I really used a mix of elements for this card, but it just goes to show that so many of the collections out there can be used together in harmony. When I was making this card, I was really just grabbing various elements from my very mess desk and this is what came out!

I used the gorgeous Glam Girl Emma stamp set as my main element on this card.


For my little glam girl, I decided to use the heart headband accessory stamp. I stamped the Emma and the headband separately onto white paper and then colored them both in with Copics. I then cut both images out using my Xacto blade & then adhered the headband using liquid adhesive. The headband just fits perfectly on her head. There is a little crown in this stamp set and it fits perfectly on her head as well.

The green polka dot and also the snowflake paper came out of the Winter Wonderland paper pad, but the light blue polka dot paper came from the Merry & Bright paper pad from Carta Bella.

I created this pretty round frame shape using the Cricut Expression and the Holiday Cakes cartridge. This shape is called Baby1 from Page 31 & it was cut at 4.5inches.

The sentiment was made from a combo of alpha stickers and a stamp. The sentiment stamp “Sparkle” is from the Glam Girl Emma stamp set. The alpha letters are from the This & That Christmas collection kit, which was included in the September SP Monthly Kit.

To embellish the card, I added some green glitter glue, which is from Studio G. I also added some Maraschino twine from The Twinery & a glazed brad from the My Mind’s Eye All Is Bright decorative brads set.

The finished card measures 5inches square.

Here is a closer look at my coloring:

  1. What a cute card! I love the sentiment and the bling! You are sooooo good with the Xacto knife. I would never be able to be that steady for such a small piece of paper.
